I was charged with a DUI. Took breath test and blood test. Blood came back with nothing bc the cop forgot to ask for which drug he wanted tested. Blew Breath test,came out 0.00. Cops states I was on drugs. Took alcohol/drug Assessment, no treatment and passed UA. Prosecutor still wants to charge with DUI and court appointed says I could get possibly driving reckless driving. Cop also lied and stated he gave me a ticket for not having insurance,never did. Have insurance and pay 6 months ahead each time. Witness are the ones that called in saying I was driving poorly and driving on the wrong side of the road,not true and back out of a driving and did a U turn. Can't do it,you either go right or left you can't do a u turn backing out of anywhere. I want to go to trial. what should I do? Thxs
Sounds like a very defensible case. Don't know how they prove a case with no alcohol nor tox results.

I Hold a CDL drivers license. Couple years ago I was pulled over for DUI in personal vehicle, and blew over the legal limit. Couple months later I win my WA DOL hearing. License never suspended, CDL never revoked. I ended up getting a Neg 1 in criminal court. Again, no license suspension or anything. Now I'm being told by an prospective employer that my CDL was effected by blowing over the legal limit. However, everything on my driving record says clear. Is it, my imagination, is the DOT and DOL completely different? Can my CDL be effected even though its never been suspended? Don't the DOT regulations apply from random, on the job alcohol/drug tests
Negligent Driving 1 is a serious traffic violation. http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/cdlsustraffic.html If you...
My father purchased a vehicle in my town. He bought it for when he was in town which is only once every two months or so. A coworker/friend of his wanted to share the vehicle. So my father agreed to share the truck, as the friend offered to buy the liability insurance. No one else was allowed to use the truck. This agreement went on for about a year. Last week the friend, lent the truck to his significant other. She then was in an accident and is being charged with a DUI. My father was out of town, and has proof of such. He also has the paperwork proving that the insurance was purchased by the friend. My father believes that the insurance will cover it and it will be fine. I am wondering if he should make a report of a stolen vehicle. Since he in no way authorized the woman to drive
I am not a WA attorney but would tell you that you need to be very careful here. The vehicle was not stolen! The...
How long can a person be held in jail for not having a required BAID in his vehicle at the time he was taken in?
He has a couple DUI convictions from years ago. He recently just made an agreement to purchase vehicle off of someone for work a month prior with monthly payments. The vehicle he was pulled over in. Unsure if he was DWI but the court indicates there was no charge listed just lack of a BAID. If the vehicle is in another person's name but he drove it as a means to get to work? Does that affect the charge?
Ignition interlock devices are strictly enforceable. If you do not have an IID on your vehicle and the court ordered...
