  • How do I get a police report and results of a blood draw before my arraignment?

    Was arrested for DUI in March and I want the police report and results of blood draw before my arraignment on Sept. 16 2010

    Jonathan’s Answer

    Even more so, you may not be able to even GET a copy of your own police report from the law enforcement agency that arrested you. That is always best left to your attorney. If you don't have one yet, prior to your arraignment, you need one as soon as possible. Feel free to call me for your FREE CONSULTATION at 425-424-9401.

  • Can you be charged for contacting an escort.

    Can you be charged for contacting an escort service.

    Jonathan’s Answer

    Merely contacting an agency, I do not believe, is criminal in and of itself. However - if there is an offer of prostitution which is accepted by you - then yes - you can be charged. If you find yourself in this situation feel free to call me for a FREE CONSULTATION at 425-424-9401.

    With the King County Prosecutor's office - it can take months to a year or more in some instances. Redmond is moving a bit faster than most - but 5 months is not uncommon. If you need an attorney feel free to call 425-424-9401 for your FREE CONSULTATION.

    Mr. Bartels is quite correct - the best course of action for you is to hire an attorney immediately so they can begin researching the diminished capacity arguments you want to make to see if they will hold water in court.

  • Do I really need to have attorney for a malicious mischief case when my record literally doesnt even have a parking ticket on it

    First charge ever, good student with a 3.5 gpa at Green River

    Jonathan’s Answer

    The fact is - malicious mischief is a gross misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a $5000 fine. Additionally - it can cause problems with schooling, apartments, jobs, etc. You do absolutely NEED an attorney - but more importantly - you WANT an attorney. You want someone who is skilled in this area to help you through it so you can get a good result and move on with your life. Messing up a case like this on your own is tantamount to trying to take out your own appendix. You just wouldn't do it.

  • What do I have to do to move out of state?

    I received my first DUI. I have already been to court and received the minimum (day in jail, $1500 in fines and fees, unsupervised probation. Day in jail and Money has been paid in full. What do I need to do to move to NC?

    Jonathan’s Answer

    Generally speaking, unless you've had a prior DUI - you're not under the interstate compact, so you shouldn't have any problems moving out of state. Note that you are usually required to advise the court of your new address immediately - and that in your particular case, there may be requirements I'm not aware of - but generally - tell the court where you move.

  • How much time will i be in jail for a 4th degree assault charge

    so i recently got in a fight with a former friend... all i did was pull her hair... but she called the police and i was charged with 4th degree assault... i went to the jail but was bailed out... and now she wants to take me to court again for the...

    Jonathan’s Answer

    You're not being taken to court again. The fact that you bailed out doesn't finalize your case. You're charged with a gross misdemeanor - meaning you could face up to one year in jail and/or a $5000 fine. What you should do is immediately contact an attorney to handle your case. Your "former friend" isn't the one charging you - it's now the county prosecutor's office. You need someone on your side.

  • Assualt 4 with 6 points

    I just got served with arraignment papers for assault 4. I think I have 6 points so what is my presumptive sentence range?

    Jonathan’s Answer

    Mr. Lawrence is totally correct. The points don't affect the maximum sentencing - however, the prosecutor and judge CAN take them into account as prior convictions at the time of sentencing. You need skilled counsel as soon as possible. Feel free to call me for your FREE CONSULTATION at 425-424-9401

  • What can the prosecuters use in a dwi trial if you do not blow and what can you have depreessed as a defendant

    are there certain things you may have depressed

    Jonathan’s Answer

    Without a breath test, your case MAY in fact be more difficult than you think.

    In Washington State, your refusal to give a breath test MAY be admissible against you - but it also may be suppressible. It all depends on the particular facts of your case. The same can be said for ALL evidence in your case. It may ALL be suppressible - or not. Regardless - without a breath test, the State must prove that your ability to drive was affected by alcohol to ANY appreciable degree.

    You need a SKILLED DUI attorney working with you on this.
