What is the statue of limitations on refiling DUI charges.
In 2005 received a DUI ticket in Washington. I pled innocent and it went to trial in 2006. In the middle of the trial the state had to dismiss the charges due to lack of evidence. However, they did so "Without prejudice" which means that they can refile. When does the states statue of limitations expire in a case like that? On this late date 2016, can they still file against me? I'd ask my attorney except he didn't even show up in court that day, so piss on him!!
The statute of limitations on gross misdemeanors is 2 years from the alleged date of the violation, i.e. the date that...
Does anyone know where I can find a list of approved first offenders DUI class in Washington State?
Got a DUI in California and will be moving to WA for work. Court ordered to enroll in a first offender DUI class in WA and send proof of completion.
Its not exactly clear to me what California considers to be a "first offender DUI class" as we have no such animal here...
I am getting charged with a Drug DUI with a blood result .20mg oxycottin. How would this be handled differently from Alcohol.
I got pulled over because the officer said I was going 59 in a 50 when I had my car set on cruse control? He makes a brief statement saying that my thinking process is slow, so he asks me to do a sobriety test and didn't do so good I guess cause it was freezing and made me take my heels off so I was barefoot. What the officer also didn't consider was I have Mental Problems for my slow thinking and slow learner. I get handcuffed and put in the back of the police car, He didn't give me a evaluation and takes me straight to the hospital to draw my blood. After he was going to let me go he decides to keep me because I have a baby father who was on Washingtons Most Wanted. I get questioned about his where a bout and they told me I would go to jail if I don't tell. But never had a option.
It will not be handled differently than alcohol, if WA law is similar to CO. Impairment is the issue whether by drugs...

instead of giving me the breathalyzer machine to bring home they gave me my ankle bracele that has the alcohol monitoring in it 24/7 can they do that ? isn't that going against the judge
Yes, as frustrating as this may be for you to achieve compliance, this is not only permissible, it is the preferred...
DUI amended to reckless, second DUI now what is going to happen
In 2008 I had a DUI amended to reckless driving, and now in 2011 I got a new DUI. While in court yesterday my public defender and the judge were uncertain as to the way this would effect my license? My public defender thinks it will only suspend my license for 90 days yet the judge thinks it would be 2 years. Either way my public defender said I could get an interlock license and still drive. Can I get some clarification as to the consequences if I just admit guilt and take the 230 days in jail??
The judge is correct. The new DUI would be considered a second DUI for all sentencing purposes. The length of the...
I got arrested for a dui and the officer never read me my rights. Can't I get off for that.
I got pulled over for dui and the officer told me to blow and i tried twice and said i was doing it right and arrested me for dui. I barely moved and he.said he will break my fingers if i move again. Not once did he read me my right. I got till the 18th to come up with 400 if I want a court date. But cant really afford it. If you think i can get off then i might fight. I need to be able to drive to work.
Whether of not the officer read you your "RIGHTS" isn't a determining factor of being charged with the crime of DUI....
Can I sue my employer for demoting me as a result of a DUI?
I have a pending DUI and my position requires me to drive 90% of the time. I am a first time offender and even if convicted, I will retain my driving privileges with the use of an ignition interlock device (according to my attorney). Historically my employer has demoted others in this situation into roles that pay less and are stationary, resulting in a large pay decrease. I would like to know if this is legal, considering I would still be able to perform the responsibilities my position requires, no matter what the outcome. I have even been denied the opportunity for lateral moves that are stationary and do not require driving as a primary responsibility. While they do pay for my mileage, I pay for my gas, insurance and vehicle payment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Being arrested for a DUI makes you a liability for your employer. The fact your employer has demoted others, makes...
