I took a plea for a DUI 1, and received the minimum sentence. Due to the rural area and being on unemployment I have not been able to complete the ADIS (because I have no license to drive to Yakima and no other transportation), or get the IIL installed (the courts denied my financial assistance app). I contacted the judge and asked for the IIL to be reduced because of the hardships (and the strain it could put on my family if I am no longer receiving unemployment past Dec and can't get a job because I don't have a license) or to have the charge reduced to a Wet/Reckless. I received a subpoena to appear in court for a motion hearing. It says the prosecutor will be there, and it says they "cc'd" the subpoena to the officer that pulled me over. What should I expect at this hearing?
Where is your attorney?
Can a judge threaten me with jail time if I haven't been ordered to take an assessment in prior hearings?
As I was going through the process heading up to sentencing for a gross misdemeanor (DUI), at my sentencing hearing (my lawyer was a real piece of work...I wasn't prepared at all), a pro-temp judge threatened to put me in jail, as I had not completed an alcohol assessment. Prior to this hearing, I had never been ordered to attend an assessment. Is that legal? It would seem that if a judge could arbitrarily put me in jail without myself ever having defied an order from the court, that would be coercion and place me under duress. At the time I was contemplating bringing up changing my plea (I was getting screwed pretty hard.) - after being threatened I felt I had no choice but to let them sentence me.
It is impossible for me to say why the Judge wanted to put you in jail for not completeing an assessment. The Judge...
I did an alcohol eval. My referral was sent out that an 8 hour class was what I needed to complete. Probation disagrees.
Can my probation officer deny the referral and make me do more treatment options. She said I lied but I didn't. I was honest and provided all information accurately and truthfully to the counselor. Do I have any options or does the probation officer have complete control over what my treatment program entails.
You must do what the court ordered. Did the court have the evaluation when you were sentenced? If so, you need only do...
What options do I have if my alcohol referral for an 8 hour class was denied by my probation officer. Eval done by licensed prof
I have no priors and have complied with all court requirements. I have not failed a single UA in 110 days. I rarely drink but did drink heavily on the night of my arrest. I was in an abusive relationship and drank at times to drown out the abuse. Outside of that environment I never drink. I now attend women's DV meetings and go to weekly counseling sessions for PTSD from 20 years of verbal, emotional and psychological abuse from my domestic partner. All of this I set up on my own., it was not court ordered. I was honest with the licensed and certified alcohol counselor about my alcohol use over the years. I have never been in trouble with the law. The alcohol eval and one year probation was court ordered. No physical altercations occurred the night of my arrest. Malicious mischeif 3.
Why did the probation officer deny it? What do you mean by denied it? If the court ordered you to complete a drug...
Does a DUI mental health deferment hurt my chances of passing the character and fitness section of the state bar?
I will take the bar in five years and am facing a charge of DUI no plea allowed . BAC . 175 in Ellensburg , WA . I want a dismissal instead of taking the misdemeanor for life . Is it really a bad decision to take the deferral if my mental health issues are warranted at this time .
Well, you'll certainly need to disclose this. It may cause problems, but it shouldn't be a complete bar to you joining...
Order states that I must get written permission from court to change treatment providers.How do I motion the court?
Deferred prosecution DUI.
Your question shows up in the "litigation" category. You'll get more responses in a "criminal defense" or "DUI"...
I got a DUI for weed the other night I need to know what’s going on and I need some help understanding what’s going on.
I got pulled over for not using my turn signal. I had not been smoking, but the friends I had just picked up from a party were. I smoked earlier that day and up until then I smoked every day.
I know this sounds like a generic answer, but you should really consult an attorney in person right away. The...
