What deals are commonly offered by the prosecutor in this situation?
I crashed my car. When the cop showed up I refused the first breathalizer and took one when he brought me to the police station. It was .045 BAC. I have no previous DUIs. I did have one previous misdemeanor which has been dismissed through the Washington State compromise of misdemeanor. A public defender told me that the prosecutor will probably give me a good deal regardless because it's my first DUI. I would like to travel internationally someday and am concerned about the DUI being permanently on my record.
Based on a .04 you should not be looking at a plea to DUI. Any competent attorney who concentrates their practice on...

Plea of not guilty at first DUI appearance?
Got charged last Friday for first DUI and went to court today with a DUI attorney who I met with prior to court and decided we are going to go the deferred route as I will benefit from treatment and won't have to spend time in jail or lose job and I am wondering about when we were in court the lawyer said a plea of not guilty? Is this a pretrial diversion for my deferred prosecution and will be changed to guilty at next court appearance?
If your lawyer had you enter into a diversion program or deferred prosecution then a not guilty plea was the right plea...
How much is a lawyer for a deferred on a First Offense DUI?
Today I went to my first court appearance after receiving my first DUI last Friday and called a DUI attorney who I met with and he went to court with me to plead not guilty and do a deferred prosecution and have court in a month. To hire the attorney it would be $3,000 total, including $1500 down. Is this the normal cost? Should I find a different-more affordable lawyer if there is one? Can I get a public defender? Thanks
The most important thing is that you trust your attorney. A deferred prosecution is a five year commitment, and you'll...

DUI probation violation in Snohomish County??
I was convicted of DUI in 2009. I completed Victims Panel, ADIS, Alchol/Drug Eval, paid all fines, and put on 5 yrs probation (unsupervised) Since its unsupervised and i owe nothing to the court or probation and not had to deal with them, i forgot all about being on probation. I recently got stopped and looking at Neg Driving 1 in a different county. Snohomish hasnt contacted me at all about a violation. What should i do and what am i looking at for this violation?
It is very unlikely that the new charge will go unnoticed by Snohomish County probation. When you're on unsupervised...
