    There are actually at least two things that will be preventing you from getting licensed. Mr. Barr has addressed the HTO and how you can obtain a stay of that revocation. You are also suspended. because of your DUI conviction. However you may be eligible to obtain an Ignition Interlock License (IIL). You would need to pay the application fee, install the IIL in the vehicle you will be driving and obtain proof of High Risk Insurance.

    There should be an internal process for review by the interlock provider. If they do not give you a review or they intend to report the violation to the DOL, court or probation, then you can seek a Temporary Restraining Order from the superior court to prevent them form reporting until a judge has heard the case.

    The King County District Court has published an excellent guide to the vacation and removal of conviction and non-conviction criminal data. It applies throughout the State of Washington. Please be aware that it does not address federal records, nor will it address the reinstatement of the right to bear arms. An attorney who has experience with these issues will be very helpful Here is the url: http://www.courts.wa.gov/newsinfo/content/GuideToCrimHistoryRecords.pdf

    I think you have two potential charges. Theft and Minor in Possession of Alcohol. Each is a misdemeanor. Because you are 17 you are likely to be charged in Juvenile Court. If you are going to be 18 soon, the prosecutor could wait a couple of months and charge in adult court after your turn 18. If not, then you may have a number of options in Juvenile Court including Diversion, which is an opportunity these charges off your adult criminal history. I don't know what an "informal adjustment"...

    You can contact the court and ask if it has a walk-in calendar. Often the court will allow a person to reschedule their court date upon their promise to appear if they have not failed to appear before. In your case if you appear before teh judge, he or she is likely to proceed with the review hearing so make sure that you are doing everthing the court asked you to do at your sentencing. Also you or someone else can deposit the bail amount with the court. The person who posts teh bail...

    Your son has several problems. First, the State of Washington will seek to suspend his driving privilege. Regardless of whether he has a Washington or an Oregon driver's license, he needs to request a hearing within 20 days of his arrest or the suspension will be automatic. He can request a hearing on the form that was provided to him by the arresting officer or by going to the website, http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/hearingsrequest.html Even if he has an Oregon license ( or no...

    Because a Segway is a Electric Personal Assistive Mobility Device under Washington State law it is not a motor vehicle. The DUi statute only applies to teh operation of motor vehicles. So no a person could not be charged with DUI for operating this device while intoxicated. However, operating that device or any other while intocxicated could lead to charges of reckless endangerment, negligent assualt or worse. Be careful out there so that no one gets hurt!!! As of July 1, 2011 the...

    Do review your insurance coverage. You should have a declaration page that tells you whether you have uninsured motorist protection ("UM" or "UIM" are common abbreviations for this). If so, your insurer is obligated to pay your damages under that contract provision once you file a claim and give them proof of damages. Your insurance company then gets the exclusive right to go after the other driver for the money they have paid to you.
