Prior offenses and ignition interlock

If you have been arrested for DUI and your record shows a “prior offense,” judges in Washington must require you to install ignition interlock on any vehicle you drive.  A “prior offense” is any charge that was originally charged as DUI, even if that charge was reduced to reckless or negligent driving.  This condition will be ordered as a condition of your release at arraignment, which is typically your first appearance in court.  Other mandatory conditions of release also apply.  Whether or not you have a prior offense, you should consult an attorney prior to arraignment so you can be prepared to address conditions of release.
