Spokane County Prosecutor Takes Tougher Stance On DUIs

(Spokane, WA)  --  Spokane County Prosecutor Larry Haskell is making changes that aim to increase punishment for intoxicated drivers.  Haskell says beginning August 1st, drivers who post a blood-alcohol level above point-12 will not be allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge.  He says there will also be no negotiating for any second or subsequent DUI.  Those charged with DUI for the first time will be required to plead as charged for a blood-alcohol level of point-12 or higher.
