    Yes, bail can be set at your arraignment even though it is some five months after the incident occurred. This is a very normal procedure in King County courts that your arraignment would be this amount of time after the incident. The setting of bail is not a normal occurrence on these types of cases, especially if this is in Redmond District Court (where posted). It is supposed to be reserved for those who are considered a danger to society or that will not return for court. The setting...

    There will not technically be a "sentence" for a probation violation, but instead that judge is free to impose any sort of sanction he or she deems is reasonable under the circumstances. There is no punishment the judge has to impose. Some judges might tell you that you need to follow through on the treatment recommendations and let it go at that. Other judges might say, because you didn't follow through on what I told you to do I am going to impose a day in jail, or communty service or a...

    Even though you are over the legal age to drink (apparent from the DUI you mention from 13 years ago) and you blew under the legal limit (it is also clear that you meant breath test and not blood) you are being charged with a DUI. This happens all the time in our state. Unfortunately, you need to proceed as though you blew over the legal. What I mean by that is you need to follow through and retain an attorney to help you with your court proceedings becasue if you are convicted of this...

    In addition to the other answers, quite often the judges tell people at the time of sentencing that they think it is a great idea to ask for copies of the reports being sent to the court and probation to act as a safeguard. This way, if the person doesn't get the monthly update the odds are that the court and probation did not get it either. Therefore, the treatment agency should not see this request by you as unusual in the least.

  5. Can we stop worrying about DUI?

    It is very typical that your wife has not received anything from the court yet. In King County WA it can take easily 6 months or so before one receives notice that they have to come to court to face a criminal charge. The statute of limitations on a DUI in WA is two years which means they file charges up to that time.

  6. I have two previous duis. I got pulled over today with a suspened license what will happen to me

    It all depends. If the suspension is for the previous DUI then it should be in the 2nd Degree. While this offense carries no mandatory minimum penalties like the DUI does, it does carry with it an additional year of license loss if convicted. As far as the probation goes, if you are on probation for the DUI offense, there is a 30 day minimum jail sentence as a mandatory penalty for someone who drives without a license and insurance while on probation for a DUI. This is usually written right...

  7. What is a write in probation and what do that do for it?

    Answered about 5 years ago.

    2 lawyer answers

    "Write-in" probation is simply that -- individuals on this type of probation will be required to write in to their probation officers. It is usually a boiler-plate type of form that is provided by the probation officer that needs to be sent to him/her by the individual on probation. The individual will answer questions, etc in relation to what they are doing, like employment etc. and perhaps also provide proof of AA slips. Depending on the probation office, this will be required every 'x'...

    I agree with Jon 100 percent. I always tell everyone that contacts me that they should speak to at least 3 attorneys before making a decision. I think it is great that you have done the initial research to come up with your list. Now go in and meet with those attorneys and then decide who is going to help you with your matter. Everyone has a different personality, different costs, etc. and you will know which one is the right fit for you after sitting down with each of them. You cannot go...

  9. Is it possible to go to jail if I did not pay my fine for negligent driving in the first degree?

    To answer your main question, the judge can 'unsuspend' any portion of the sentence that was not imposed at the original sentencing. Since a negligent driving in the first degree is a simple misdemeanor what that means is that the maximum penalites for this offense are 90 days in jail and a $1000.00. Therefore, usually what the judge does is whatever you did not receive at the time of sentencing is usually suspended and can then any portion of that can later be imposed at times like this....

    The arraignment is just the first step in the process. It is the formal beginning to your case. All you are going to do is enter into a plea of not guilty to the charge. This is not the time to try to defend yourself against the charges; that will come at later hearings. Therefore, if you go to this hearing without an attorney DO NOT try to explain the circumstances surrounding the incident to either the prosecutor or the judge. They are not there to defend you and anything you say could...
