I was arrested at the scene of incident where I had run into a sign. The roads were slick and I was not speeding however he officer noticed I was inroxicated. I did compily to a breath analysis and blew over the limit. I was arrested but let go an hour later. A few days following I decided to to a search in the Snohomish county database for those that were arrested and released over the same weekend I was. My name had not come up. Will I be charged?

I was in a car accident by myself and went off the road and hit a telephone pole. Sheriff said I blew 3X the legal alcohol limit. I was taken to hospital in ambulance. Sheriff said he was going to give me a break and not arrest me, said I would be receiving a $500.00 ticket in the mail.

This is my first dui and I'm interested in knowing how much a lawyer would cost me

I received third dui. My previous two dui’s were 30 min apart from one another deferred both. Why does the diversion not count?
I defered the double dui. Passed all 5 years wit flying colors. Now they are saying I have 3 dui’s with new charge. This third one is passed the 7 years. I blew ,074. Also crashed my car. No one else involved I do not understand the “diversion” situation if it just totally counts anyway why did I pay all that money and everything. Does the deversion benefit me AT ALL??
A deferred prosecution is not designed to be a free pass. The legislature recognized that alcoholism and mental health...

What sentence could I get when I was accused of dui and they found baggies that use to have meth in them in my stuff at jail?
I crashed my car, no one else involved. I was arrested for dui. I deferred a double dui 7 years ago. I did not blow at scene. At police station I blew .074. Later at the jail they found a cigarette box with several used baggies with meth residue and i peed positive for meth. I had only used meth one time and it was 2 days prior. The baggies were not mine but I have no proof of that. The officer said due to the totality if the events he determined I was impaired on alcohol. My car was totaled. No one hurt. Thank you
The prosecutor can still charge you with DUI even if you don't blow a .08 or higher, first because there is a variance...
I pulled off the freeway, parked my car and turned it off to sleep. The police arrested me for DUI, how should I proceed?
I was moving about a hundred miles away one direction and this was the third trip I had made that day, so nearly 600 miles, along with un/loading the car. I was diagnosed with a concussion less than 2 weeks prior to this happening. I offered to provide a portable breathalyzer to one of the three officers that I was awoke by when using my sirens. I was asleep in my car, with the vehicle legally parked on the side of the off ramp in a safe location. I decided I needed to get some sleep when I started to hit the rumble strips. The primary officer detained me for 5 hour in the back of his vehicle while he attempted to get a warrant to draw my blood, which he was denied each time. After spending 5 hours in the back of his cop car, he continued to impound my vehicle, and book me on dui, without any blood draw or breathalyzer. I strongly feel that my civil rights were violated during this arrest. I have a public defender that is handling the case, however I believe that there should be a civil case that should be somewhat easily settled or won due to the misconduct of the Washington State Trooper. Should I attempt to find a civil attorney that can either defend the DUI, and/or partner up?
You should recode this to DUI law rather than traffic. An attorney experienced in DUI's may be able to provide you...
