I agree with the other attorney, "not necessarily." Many courthouses have a jail in the same building or connected to it. Hence, the same address. Do not stress. Retain competent criminal ASAP in preparation for the arraignment. If you cannot do so due to financial constraints, find out the name of the Public Defender handling that court, inquire how to apply for representation, and do so right away so that you may speak with your lawyer before court.
Best of luck!
King County Superior Court maintains a will repository. See Chapter 11.12 RCW (http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=11.2). Perhaps the attorney or the testator (your father) filed the original will here. It is best practice to do so; now you see why.
It sounds as though you entered into a deferred sentence wherein the court reviewed the report, made a finding of guilt, imposed conditions for 6 months, and vacated the conviction or finding of guilt after you complied w/ your conditions. Typically courts require two years of law-abiding behavior and no pending/subsequent charges or convictions to hear your motion to "expunge" a conviction. However, since your case is now dismissed the court will likely entertain your motion now (again, as...
Seek out an experienced DUI/DWI attorney in your area for a free consultation. She/he can advise you more properly after learning more of the details such as how the officer rated your FST performance, why he stopped your vehicle (weaving or tail light out, for example), etc. She/he can also access more information than you have been able to glean The city has plenty of time to charge you so you could get a ticket in the mail a month from now. I think that if they had a rock solid case you...
Juvenile felony adjudications do not carry the same consequences as adult
felony convictions. Your voting rights were never adversely affected by
your finding of guilt. If the courts told you differently they were wrong.
It happens all the time. Any other questions? Please feel free to call.

You must appear at the arraignment and ask the court to continue the court
date until after your attorney returns. You will be required to waive
speedy arraignment. An arraignment is a critical stage of the proceedings
for which you have a right to have counsel present. However, the court
might offer you the public defender or another lawyer who happens to be in
the courtroom to fill in for your attorney, particularly if it's a simple
case, a first offense, or a misdemeanor, and...
My first thought is why are you asking Avvo? Why is this question not directed at your husband's lawyer? I'm sure he had at a minimum an assigned attorney.
But generally, the answer is "no." Your husband had been sentenced and was evidently on community custody. He had conditions to comply with which he apparently violated. The court set a violation hearing at which he was found to have violated a condition by a preponderance of the evidence so the court imposed prison time
You need to contact an experienced WA state DUI/DWI attorney ASAP before your arraignment if possible.Most of us provide free telephone consultations; my office provides complimentary consultations for up to and sometimes beyond 2 hours. However, at this point you need to know these things. One, you must plead NOT GUILTY. Period. Two, because you are from CA the prosecutor will likely ask for bail to "ensure your return." If you have a spotless record with no history of Failure to Appear (FTA)...
You have a lawyer. I assume you asked this question of him/her? If not, do so immediately. Perhaps you lack trust in him/her? If that is the case, you must hire another attorney,
This is a troubling question because the consequences of conviction for a sex offense are severe and permanent. You can never get it off your record. Also, there is SO treatment, registration requirements, living restrictions, unavailability of many jobs, potential civil commitment as a sexual predator after...
