    Understandably your stressed out. Probation likely reported the new charge to your sentencing judge who called you in for a hearing, or will. Depending on which judge in Smohomish and which court will determine what your actually facing. All the judges in Snoho are different and some will allow for your new charge to be resolved before taking action some wont. You need to know that before you appear. Do NOT go in to a review unprepared. Despite the new charge make certain your up to date...

    It's been my experience that judges know when a story is embellished, they do this everyday. You need to write a declaration of what happened and appear at the hearing. The other side needs to meet certain legal standards with facts. It's important to present your side in a clear and calm manner. Cool & level head always prevails.

    Check out the DOL website look under the tab for suspended licenses and DUI, lots of information there. If you have questions check in with an attorney but DOL does a great job of setting out the rules and regulations of Ignition Interlock Devices. Best of luck!

    Did the incident happen close to midnight? Because oftentimes the mistake is made about date because it's minutes away from the 23rd or 22nd but is easily corrected before trial or even during trial by the prosecutor as Mr. Lawrence points out.

  5. How are protection domestic violence orders suppose to protect us if nothing is done when a violation happens?

    The protection order is suppose to keep him from coming near you. You did the right thing by reporting the stalking with help of 3rd party. I agree with other attorneys who have suggested being safe, keep a cell phone near you, and stay in public view. Doesn't seem like he's come near you, as he's been instructed by the court. Hang in there.

  6. If California has two bench warrants for a misdemeanor, will they extradite you from Washington?

    I agree, I have many clients who have Washington warrants and have moved to other states, since have been pulled over, and were not extradited. Also it is common practice by California to only extradite on felony cases and even those not unless they are violent felonies. I have seen on jail calendars many inmates released after California was contacted about a warrant and they refused to extradite. Still good idea to make plans to go to California to resolve those misdemeanor matter so you...

    Most judges will keep a no contact order in place until they see your BF take active steps to get tretament for his behavior. The DV assessment is the best and sometimes only way to persuade a judge. The health of your pregnancy only enforces the judge's concern for your safety. Good luck, sometimes it's a good idea to be represented yourself at these hearings so someone who knows what a judge's concerns are can argue for you.

    It depends on the facts of the case. A lower charge could be something different altogether. I recommend discussing the matter with your attorney.

    If you mean bring it to the judge because it caused the defendant to be convicted wrongly, then the proper channel would depend if your goal us to have the victim punished or to overturn the defendant's conviction. If your goal is to have them punished then reporting it to the prosecutor may be a good place to start. If your goal is to have the defendant's conviction overturned then speaking yo an attorney that does appeals would be a good start. Like my colleague mentions below, proving...

  10. If one has already been granted deferment, how long before they are eligable for deferment again in Washington?

    Most courts follow the rule that they allow one deferment on a moving violation and one in a non-moving violation in seven years. So if you had a deferment on a speeding ticket in the last seven years, it's not likely a judge would grant another one on another speeding ticket. If your deferment was for a non-moving infraction, like not wearing a seatbelt, then a judge could grant you a deferment in your speeding ticket.
