Yelm Law

Alaska States DUI laws state that if you have three DUI within ten years it is considered a Felony DUI. But In Washington State it states not until your fourth DUI it is then considered a felony DUI. I have nothing over my head as far as legal implications and only have the suspended license left to deal with at this time. I have had my license suspended going on four years and am about ready to lose my job because of the lengthy suspension time. I would indebted with any type of positive information anyone could provide to me. Thanks

He is an inmate worker now and was told the prosecutors offered 10 weeks in custody, 10 weeks home monitoring and 10 weeks chemical dependency treatment inside. None of his time spent would count apparently. He was already in a treatment program and is still OK'ed to return if he is released. He wants to decline the 10, 10, 10 offer because he has heard several others get off with 45, 60, or 90 days. If he declines the offer is it completely off the table? And is it customary to decline the first offer given by the prosecutors?
