What conditions make a DUI offense a felony?

For a DUI to be considered a felony, extreme circumstances must be present. These circumstances can based on the accused's criminal history or details of the DUI incident in question.

A DUI is a felony in Washington when:

  • The accused has four or more prior DUI offenses within the past 10 years
  • The accused has been convicted of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated
  • The accused has been convicted of vehicular assault while intoxicated
  • The accused has been convicted of an equivalent vehicular manslaughter or assault offense in another state

Felony convictions come with serious penalties, including prison time.
