I got a DUI this year in Washington state. I am being charged as a 2nd DUI offender because WA state is treating my California Wet Reckless as a DUI. In CA state, a Wet Reckless is NOT considered a DUI. Is there any way I can use WA or CA state laws to prove that it is objectionable to count my CA Wet Reckless as a DUI in WA state? I am hoping to get my charge dropped to a 1st DUI offense. Thank you for your time.
hi, I really empathize with you.WHAT THIS REALLY BOILS DOWN TO IS HOW YOU WROTE YOUR GUILTY STATEMENT. You need to get...
I received a DUI conviction 3.5 years ago (1st time) and its the only thing on my record. The judge told me that he would defer it with the stipulation being that I kept my nose clean for 5 years and after that time it would fall off of my record. I just received an HOV lane violation which is a moving violation in my state. Will that affect my deferral?
Unless the judge took the very unusual step of ordering that you have no civil traffic infractions you should be fine....
What is the minimum period of time an ignition interlock device is required following a second DUI within 3 years of a first DUI
Early 2005 - first DUI (entered deferred program) completed all requirements of program except 3 year probation. Late 2007 - 2nd DUI ....BAC over .15 (not prosecuted until May 2009). Court ordered 5 years interlock. It was already installed with IIL. Seems possible under 2011 legislation court could have allowed removal in less than 5 years????? It has been well over 5 years and no violations yet DOL says removal not prior to August 2014 citing last 4 month requirement of 2011 legislature. DOL inconsistent with explanation/reasoning for August removal date. Interpretation of law appears somewhat ambiguous within DOL????????
RCW 46.20.720. The requirement is five years. The start date would depend on when the court got notice to DOL of your...
after I was pulled over I ate the rest of the other Illegal drugs I had on me. I didnt know about the blood draw that I would be forced to take or go to jail. I was under the 5 nanograms but they charged me anyway because of the multipule drugs in my blood. I technically was not driving however. How do I go about defending this case. My PD is possibly mentally challenged. Thanks and god bless
Be very careful with what you say on a public forum like this. The best way to defend your case is to hire a private...
I was arrested for my 1st DUI ever and my prosecutor is offering a reckless driving reduction. What penalties am I facing when charged with reckless in Washington State?
Do you have an attorney? The attorneys on this forum can give you a general answer, but you really need to sit down...
I was charged with a DUI, however, I was not the driver of the vehicle. The other person bailed after only making it a few blocks from my condo with my car and hiding it next to some bushes on private property. She ended up going back to my condo to sleep and also taking the keys with her. She also took most of my clothes and shoes for some reason. We were both drunk, however, she was going on an alcohol run and she didn't make it. I got out of the vehicle and slept/hid in the bushes for whatever reason. When the cops came, they decided I was the driver, as the car was registered to me. They took me to the hospital for a blood draw. Is there any way I can get out of it, or am I screwed? What can I do? Thanks in advance.
You're screwed in the sense that you will likely be changed with DUI. The cops are never going to believe you weren't...
I had 6 beers at a party last weekend over the course of 4 hrs. My friend said I was too drunk but I thought I was fine. I decided to drive. How would I know if I was legally impaired? I weigh 200+ lbs and 6 drinks over 4 hrs is not much compared to my normal intake.
The real answer here that most people actually do not know is that you should not drink and drive at all. If you are...
