Boating Under the Influence in Washington State.


Boating under the influence is considered a serious criminal offense in Washington State, and as of late, there has been an increasing emphasis on drinking and boating. Why should a Washington BUI be taken seriously? It is a misdemeanor that is punishable by up to 90 days of jail time and a $1,000 fine. Our Washington BUI attorneys can help reduce your fines or even get your case dismissed.

Even if your BAC level was less than .08, you can still be convicted of Washington State BUI.

When our clients first come to our law offices, they often express how shocked they were when their relaxing day on Washington Lake turns into an embarrassing criminal arrest, and they are charged with a Washington BUI. A WA State trooper can without seemingly for any reason, come on board and ask you for a breath sample and for you to perform field sobriety test. In a polite manner of course, our Washington BUI attorneys recommend that you refuse to do so and ask to speak with your attorney immediately. Since these field sobriety tests are not mandatory, it is in your best interest to refuse them.


How is a Washington DUI arrest different than a Washington BUI?


With a Washington BUI arrest, there is no risk of having your driving privileges suspended. This is good news for you, but to avoid possible jail time and a hefty fine associated with a Washington BUI, we recommend that you speak with one of our skilled Washington BUI lawyers today.
