That is the only infraction - I'll re attach the plate but how can I keep from having a point on my insurance record/driving record. If I plead guilty but ask for a court date to explain does that automatacilly put it on my record?
This type of infraction is not a moving violation and thus doesn't go on your actual driving record.See question

The sentencing court on the initial charge can review your case at any time during the two year period of probation so long as the alleged violation occurred during that two year period. To know for certain whether the court is within its jurisdiction for setting this hearing, I would need to know exact dates.See question
my husband was sentenced to 7 days in jail and 33 days EHM. He is apparently been told they have no equipment available, so they will be holding him longer.
I need more information to accurately answer this question. How long has he been in custody? Has he served the seven days and they are looking to hold him longer for lack of EHM equipment? The court has orderd him to serve 40 days total. If the jail is unable to move him to EHM they will hold him for the duration. I suggest putting this matter back before the sentencing court. If indeed the judge wanted hime to do EHM instead of jail, he can tailor the order to that effect.See question
how can you be charged with damaging your own proerty .
It depends. If the property is yours and yours alone, the answer is "no". If anyone else can claim partial ownership, charges could be filed. For example, if a person destroys property owned jointly in a marriage, domestic violence property destruction charges could be filed.See question

Restraining orders or orders of anti-harassment are filed in either county district or superior courts. Municipal courts do not have jurisdiction over these matters.See question
The date of hearing is 10/14/09
More information as to the typre of hearing you have coming up is needed. If this is a civil motion for an antiharassment order against you then you need not be present. However you lack of presence will likely mean an automatic finding against you. If this is a hearing on a criminal matter you probably need to be present.See question

The reality of traffic infraction defense is that explaining the story to the judge results in a finding against you 99% of the time. Think of it this way. You will be hiring an attorney not only to fight the new charge but the old one as well. A finding against you in the new case will llikely result in a finding against you on the older deferred case.See question

He needs to contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. Most will offer him a free consultation whether or not he ultimately hires them. He can use the advice he receives to determine what his next step is.See question
I am a Canadian who had DUI in Washington 15 years ago. I was supposed to go to court but didn't go. Since then I haven't been to states. What will happen if I go there again? Will I be stopped at the border and arrested?
It depends on whether or not a warrant still exists for your arrests. Warrants in Washington have an expiration date but often are renewed. It is likely that a warrant does still exist. If that is the case, if you crossed into Washington, you would be arrest upon entry.
Determining whether or not a warrant exists is a simple matter. Contact an attorney in Washington or even the court the DUI was filed in to detrmine the warrant status. If there is a warrant, it likely can be quashed prior to coming into the States.See question
If my friend missed his court date and a warrant has been issued, should he turn himself in? how long do they keep you in custody if surrendering? will they reschedule an arraignment at that time or is he held for 90 days?
Before turning himself in or contacting an attorney, have your friend call the court that issued the warrant. Depending on the charge, the court, and the amount of bail imposed, your friend might need only go to the clerk of the court and sign for a new court date. If it turns out that this particular court won't allow that or that the bail is too high too simply post, he should definitely contact a DUI attorney in Seattle. A motion to quash the warrant can be made to the court and most courts in this jurisdiction have a special calendar set up designed to allow people the opportunity to explain to a judge the court date was missed.See question
