Pending DUI
So I have a pending DUI. If convicted it will be my third. I have DUI from 2008, 2013 which I am still currently on community supervision for and a violation from last year for a wreckless endangerment. I just got 60 days home detention for the violation of the reckless driving. I just did 45 days home detention for the violation of the 2013 DUI. Now I'm dealing with the current DUI. this case is different. They got a warrant to draw my blood but the lady who drew my blood wasn't licensed so out goes the blood test. The plea they offered is drop it to a wreckless and driving suspended in the third degree. Go to a victims panel and attend drug and alcohol classes determined by an a assessment I would get. I'm already in classes and have been since march. My question is what do you think are my chances are at trial? They pulled me over for speeding but did not give me a citation. Please help.

Can I get a state I.D. card from the DMV if I have an unresolved D.U.I. And a bench warrant out for my arrest?
was just made aware of the fact that I have an unresolved DUI in Washington state from 2005. I was not drunk (no alcohol @ all). However, I have several medical issues, and take many medications. I failed the roadside sobriety test, and was taken to the hospital for a blood test. I was never officially arrested, no fingerprints, mug shot etc. The officer told me that I may or may not receive a summons to court and let me go. After this occurred, I realized that I was no longer a safe driver, & stopped driving altogether. Two years passed and I moved out of state. I had no issue receiving a Utah state ID, moved to California 5 years later and received a state ID there without issue. My family decided to move back to Washington a few months ago. Curious, I sent away for a copy of my driving record, and the DUI was on my record. I have every intention of hiring an attorney and resolving this issue. However, right now I simply need to get a Washington state ID ASAP for health insurance purposes. I have not driven in 10 years and have no desire to receive a drivers license. My question is, can I go into the DMV and get a state ID, prior to resolving my DUI?
There should be no prohibition on you obtaining a Washington state ID card, but as you probably know, you would be...
My husband was arrested for DUI (probable cause) three days ago and he's still in the jail. Can he get out of jail sooner?
My husband was arrested for DUI (probable cause) three days ago and he's still in the jail. He was told that he'd be appearing in the court on Tuesday since Monday is a holiday. When I searched his record on Snohomish jail website, it doesn't have any bail info. Is there a way to get him out of there now? If not, will the judge let him go on Tuesday after the arraignment or make him stay there? This is his 2nd DUI arrest within 7 years. Since it's a weekend no legal offices are answering the calls and I'm feeling lost. Thank you!
The only way to get him released before Tuesday is to post bail. He needs an attorney, but more immediately he needs...
