The criminal case whereby you are charged with a crime and the court can impose both fines and jail time. Penalties [RCW 46.61.5055] are associated with both of these proceedings. Washington State's DUI criminal penalties vary. For any DUI conviction, minimal jail-time is 24 hours. A DUI sentence of up to 365 days may be given by a judge. If you have prior DUI convictions or if you refused a breath test at the time of your arrest, the mandatory minimum sentence could be enhanced.

- Behar, Samuel Ben:
Driving Under the Influence ("DUI") and Physical Control charges are heavily prosecuted in the state of Washington and recently, the DUI laws in Washington have been toughened to some of the most stringent in the country. Once you are arrested by law enforcement for DUI the process can be a dizzying and frightening series of hearings and procedures. You need representation that will remember that you're a person throughout this entire ordeal while working tirelessly to get you justice. The iron fist in a leather glove.

Traffic violations are a mix of regulatory and penal (criminal) offenses based on violations of state statutes and city ordinances relating to the operation of vehicles, specifically driving under the influence of alcohol or other substances which impair the ability to drive.
- Mucklestone, Jeannie:
If you have been arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI/DWI) or have received a citation for DUI in Washington State and you need DUI defense, you are facing one of the most serious traffic offenses that can be handled in District or Municipal Courts. If your BAC level is .08 or greater, you are facing two cases that you must defend: an administrative and a civil case in which the Department of Licensing seeks to suspend or revoke your license, and a criminal case in which you are subject to mandatory jail time (even for a first offense) for u p to one year, a fine up to $5,000, license suspension, SR 22 (high risk) insurance for 3 years, ignition interlock installed on your vehicle, you could be subject to deportation if you are not a United States Citizen as well as other mandatory penalties.
A DUI conviction cannot be expunged in the future.

- Bennett, Christine:
You have the right to request to speak to an attorney. If you request to speak to an attorney then law enforcement must wait until you speak to an attorney to interrogate you. You also have the right to deny police the permission to search your property such as your home, your vehicle, and your purse. If you deny consent to search, police must obtain a search warrant approved by a judge before your property can be searched. There are specific exceptions to this requirement such as for extreme examples involving a risk to public safety. If probable cause that a specific crime was committed does not exist to search the property then the judge will deny the search warrant. If probable cause does exist, the officer will have the right to search your property but only according to specific guidelines as directed by the judge. You should not be penalized in any way for respectfully asserting your right to an attorney or because you respectfully denied an officer the right to search your property.

Some form of confinement is mandatory. Jail or the loss of your license could cost you your job or career. Your family finances may suffer from heavy fines, insurance increases and costly requirements, such as expensive ignition interlock devices on every vehicle you drive, and expensive alcohol treatment programs.

- Terry Law Firm: Ordinary crime has long been considered to be the concern of state government. States are authorized to protect their citizens from criminal activity by prosecution of common law and legislatively created crimes. The federal government, on the other hand, has a limited jurisdiction and must link any crimes it prosecutes to its powers under the Constitution. The most commonly used powers to support federal criminal legislation are the commerce power, the taxing power, and the postal power. While Congress has used these powers all along to define crimes, there has been an explosion of federally created crimes in the last half of the 20th century. Most of the laws controlling white-collar crime, like the RICO Act and the Victims and Witnesses Protection Act have been passed since 1950. In addition, Congress has become increasingly involved in the "war on drugs" with the creation of various drug statutes. Due to the severity of the penalties, many local prosecutors prefer to have drug charges prosecuted in federal court rather than file state charges. Most federal laws have as their rationale that the particular crime addressed needs a uniform response from the whole country or that it would be impossible to prosecute on a state-by-state basis. Federal gun laws provide uniformity, and federal computer laws make it possible to punish Internet crime. The federal Constitution has always played a role in criminal law because it defines important individual rights that must be preserved even in a state prosecution of a state crime. The right to a trial by jury in open court, the right to cross-examine witnesses, the right to remain silent, the presumption of innocence, the right to be represented by a lawyer, and the right to be free of cruel or unusual punishment, are part of every state legal system in part because they are guaranteed by the Constitution. States are required to pay for attorneys for indigent offenders, and federal judges provide oversight to state prisons because of these constitutional requirements.
