DUI / Drunk Driving Prosecution In 2 States OK

September 8, 2009

According to a recent Washington Supreme Court decision, a driver who drove in both Oregon and Washington can be charged for DUI / Drunk Driving in both states.

The court held that there was no double jeopardy violation because both prosecutions in each state are for seperate violations.

One violation occured in Oregon and the other violation occured in Washington.

The driver, after being followed by Washington State Patrol officers into Oregon, was arrested by Portland police after the Washington State Patrol officers called for assistance.
