    Unfortunately, your options are very limited at this point. The judge has already set bail and unless you can show an extreme change in circumstances, such as incorrect criminal history or a dismissal of one of the charges, the bail will remain the same. So unless you are able to post the full amount or a bond, he will have to remain in custody until his case is resolved. One bright note is that if he is convicted, he will recieve credit for time served toward any sentence.

    Normally work release or some jail alternative is reserved for those who the court feels will comply with all the conditions. By fleeing, your friend has most likely hurt his chances of earning another shot at serving his time by way of a jail alternative.

    Juvenile courts can retain jurisdiction over people under the age of 18, but even those who allegedly commit crimes under 18 can still wind up in adult court, like your daughter has. And most likely, the fact that she was almost 18 at the time of the allegation might have had something to do with her case being filed in District Court, but who knows for sure. The fact is she has now been charged in District Court, which raises the ante a bit because you certainly want to avoid having a...

    It sounds like you might have a valid defense in that you were not within the specific speed zone of 55 MPH. I think this is the better defense than the fact that you were slightly over 55 mph, even though you were passing. This doesn't seem to work with most judges. But regarding the speed zone issue, the officer must indicate in his report that you were within a specific speed zone and many officers actually specify where the signs are posted. Overall, it appears you have some issues to...

    A deferred prosecution is a program for diagnosed-alcoholics that requires two years of treatment followed by three years of probation. You only are eligible once I your life for this. However, depending on the facts of your case, you might have a pretty solid defense, especially if there is no breath test of field sobriety tests. At the very minimum, I would consult with an attorney to review your options. With multiple DUI's and still being on probation, it is well worth speaking with a...

  7. I am charged with residential burglary and would like to know what my chances are at trial?

    First, the crime of Residential Burglary is defined under RCW 9A.52.025 as "with the intention to commit a crime against a person or property therein, the person enters or remains unlawfully in a dwelling other than a vehicle." Residential burglary is a class B felony. It appears that you might not have entered this establishment with the intention of committing any crime, so this very well could be a defense. I have a very similar case in which my client was trying to get into a house he...

    You need to retain an experienced traffic attorney immediately to represent you. The majority of the time, we can keep the ticket off your record by various procedural and evidentiary issues. The burden of proof is with the state. Retain an attorney immediately because there are certain time limitations. Here to help.

    First, I would hardly agree that 190 pounds is obese, depending on your age of course, If that was the case, a lot of us would be in trouble. But to answer your question, a police officers in Washington receive their training at the Law Enforcement Academy, including intruction and practice in the administration of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. A large part of that instruction is with the "DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing" manual published by the National Highway...

    It's always possible security or a security camera saw you. But even if that happens, security probably has no way of identifying you, so it would be hard to charge you. Most of these cases originate when someone is caught and detained at the store. But if you do receive a notice from the court, contact an attorney immediately, especially because a theft conviction an cause you immigration issues.
