How will my court hearing go if I was not booked for DUI?
I got pulled over for going 47 in a 35 going through airway heights. The officer did the basic procedures then asked me to step out of the vehicle and we began FSTs. When finished I took a breathalyzer test and blew a 1.05 to which I was apprehended and placed in the vehicle. Went back to the station where he asked me some more questions and also administered 2 more breath samples with the Alcotest 9510 which I blew .079 and .077. At the end of it all all he said was he was going to give me a speeding ticket and a court hearing for my DUI. I was not booked, no finger prints, no picture.

DUI charge in WA state. Is it possible to start a plea agreement before my arraignment in a few weeks?
I was pulled over for speeding and ended up being charged with DUI after blowing a 0.91 in the field. I thought I did fine on the field tests, but was still asked to give breath test and didn't refuse. However, I was a .075 at the station. I spent 8 hours in jail, given pre-trial release conditions, and was charged (a few days ago). I will be arraigned in about 3 weeks. I am seeking legal counsel, but I was wondering if its possible to start negotiating a plea deal before the arraignment. First time offender w/ no priors, hoping to get a reckless or negligent driving. I just want to wrap it up as fast as I can so I can get on with things.
Negotiations can happen prior to your arrangement. To pursue this it would require you to seek out representation...
