i was stopped and did the road side beathalyzer blew over the limit. But the police officer who took me to the station had to take me to the next city over because there was no licenced cop on duty to operate the breathalyzer at the station. if i was to fight this could this be somethine that could help or possibly overturn.. are they alowed to take you out of the city you were stopped in transport you to the next and do it there?
As long as the breath test is done according to the laws of Washington, the test can come in. The test on the side of...
Is an officer required to report the results of a breathalyzer if they are over the legal limit?
I was pulled over in Bellingham and my breathalyzer test was over the limit but the officer did not book me and let me go? I'm just wondering if I should expect something to come of this or if I somehow received a miracle?
Pretty unusual. But it depends on which testing device was used - portable preliminary breath test (PBT) or the...
Can I move to CA while on unsupervised DUI Probation in WA
On WA State Deferred Prosecution unsupervised probation. Have completed all of the required 2yrs of treatment and AA. Released from supervised probation in Oct 2015. Unsupervised probation lasts until Sept 2018. I was laid off of my job in Washington May 2016. Have been offered employment in CA. Can I leave WA and take the job in CA?

Does a toxicology test break down to what is in the system that specific day?
Accused of a dui with my medication. Refuused sobriety tests due to it snowing raining and icy out and told him I take medication based on that he requested blood. It's been since 2/4 and we still only have a 12 sentence PBT report where he even gets my medication wrong. Showing breathalyzer.000. Still no toxicology report in either. We will be hitting 90 days beginning of May. They gave me stuck on getting an IID and I've never drank as pre trail condition if I want to drive and making me do probation as well until this is over so I'm not driving and have co operated with my PO even though I feel I'm not guilty but am not partaking in the IID as we share a car and my husband drives more than I do i.e. Work and School.
It can take a while to get the blood results back and even if they show only prescription medications you can still be...
It's been 15weeks since a arrest for a "alleged" dui on medications PBT was .000 still no police report or toxicology..
Arrest 2/4 blew .000 no police report no toxicology report it's now been 15 weeks multiple UA's (probation pre trial condition)..never violated anything or come back dirty..I'm in pain mgmnt and those are the only meds I take.(random UA's with random med count)..I guess I'm wondering is this normal for a WSP(WST) to have not written his police report from my arrest on 2/4 based on no toxicology report? Will a judge accept a report written so late (this officer had Vacation end of March as I was trying to obtain the report myself and I have the emails from WSP stating he's on vacation).. I'm from out of state 5 days here full time and was hit with this in the middle of that horrible snow..I'm so confused on why no arrest/police report and still no toxicology... Will I have to keep this going much longer?
You should speak with an attorney about it. You have a constitutional right to a speedy trial.
Went deferred, the judge ordered 2 yr interlock & 2 yr treatment program. Now DOL says I have to keep the interlock for 5 yrs
I got a DUI 13 years ago. I got another one in October of 2016. I enrolled in an intensive inpatient 2 yr treatment program and attend AA meetings weekly. I went deferred and the judge ordered the interlock for 2 years and the treatment program (which I'd already enrolled in). A few weeks later I got a letter from DOL ordering interlock for 5 years. Is this anything I can appeal?
They have their own set of rules apart from what the Court orders. Ask your attorney to take a look at it
What legal advice would be given for being hit by a drunk driver?
Long story, short. Was hit by a drunk driver at low speed. No physical injuries, but noticing some emotional distress i.e. slight depression, slight panic attacks for driving a night. Said drunk driver claimed full fault of accident. My van is deemed totaled by his insurance company. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
If you have not done so, you need to be checked out by a doctor for your injuries. If any, you should seek treatment....
