Everett, Washington. Todd Olson’s reign of terror on Washington State roadways has come to an end for the next seven years. Any person with five DUIs in ten years will be charged under the felony DUI law in Washington State. Olson has a total of 10 DUIs, and thankfully six have occurred in the last ten years. Olson was recently convicted from his May DUI arrest, and a Snohomish County judge imposed seven years prison on Olson.

    It seems that according to some very credible sources a Kelli T. was finally arrested and brought to justice for the crazy driving and drinking incident involving the minor. When she was pulled over the police officer found her own one year old only son in her own minivan and immediately tried to reach for the actual relatives to help and come take the child away.

    But to surprise of the police officer, when actually the three relatives came onto the scene to try and pick up the child, the officer in charge and on duty at the time found that they too have all been exposed to alcohol and had pretty much been drinking for a while it seems. The actual child father, was among the first ones to arrive onto the incident scene. Once officer actually found out that even he had been drinking, they charged him and he was immediately taken to the local jail as his wife which is also being charged with DUI or driving under influence of alcohol. The grandparents finnally arrived on the scene as well, but they were intoxicated as well, but luckily the grandmother was not of the legal limit. The officers could not believe so many people including most of family members would be drinking and driving.

    I’m glad for the felony DUI law but have this concern. Felony DUI is not on the list of violent crimes (RCW 9.94A.030). So is DOC releasing these people with 50% good time? If you think about it, a person could spend more time in jail for a 4th DUI than they would for the 5th. Of course they have that felony on record. There is a guy in my county who was convicted on his 12th DUI right before the felony law went into effect. He did 2 years in jail (for #11&#12) and was recently convicted for driving w/o interlock and being suspended so he’s in jail again for 320 days. Here’s the thing – when he gets out, if he again is arrested for DUI, it won’t be a felony because of the 10 year wash out. However he will probably spend more time in jail for the gross misdemeanor than he would for a felony. It’s crazy.
