    You just need it in the car that you drive. If you need to drive a vehicle for work, you can probably get an exception for that. Assuming the car your daughter will drive is not also driven by you, that vehicle will not need one.

    In Washington, there is a defense called "safely off the roadway." What a DUI defense attorney will need to know is (1) if you have been charged yet, where you charged with DUI or Physical Control, and (2) where exactly did you pull over. There are not enought facts in your question to be able to predict the viability of your defenses. Go speak to a local, highly referred, DUI attorney. Best of luck.

    Technically, the Courts will not appoint a public defender until after the case is charged and you have been arraigned. Just call a local attorney and see if they will do a free initial consultation. Most will. Good luck.

    Is liability at issue? (meaning was a report done and did an investigating officer determine the other driver to be at fault?), Have you received any medical treatment? Are you still involved in treatment? How long has it been since the accident? Who is the opposing insurance company? These are all facts that are really necessary to give a guess as to how long a case would take to get to resolution.

    Over in Kitsap, If a gun is involved in any fashion, it is a bar from Drug Court or from any other type of Diversion. Spokane County may be different, but my hunch is that a stolen firearm charge will preclude you from diversion options. Best of luck.

    It could be an issue of mistaken identity. You do need a local attorney to help you through this process. This is especially tricky since you don't even know what you are up against. Getting an attorney on board early is advantageous because an attorney can obtain discovery (or all the police reports) most likely prior to your arraignment date. Your defenses are not known until an attorney can go through those reports. If it is a clear error, sometimes a conversation between defense and...

    You need to get an aggressive local attorney involved. There is more information needed to truely answer this question. I am making two assumptions - (1) that they arrested him for DUI, (not some other charge) and (2) that they then took him into custody. Then next questions are - What did the Prosecutor's do with it? Did they charge him with the DUI? Did he sit in a cell over night before he was heard by the Court? Did the Court find Probable Cause? You need to sit down with an...

    You need to talk to an attorney in your area. Quashing that warrant is priority number one. Once that is done, an attorney in that area who does a lot of defense will most likely know if that particular store will do a "compramise of misdemeanor." That is a method in which you basically pay the store for the goods and/or for their trouble, and the case can be dismissed. Lastly, don't talk about the facts of your case over a forum like this. Good Luck.

    As you have learned, the Officers do not necessarily have to be straight with you. The reports will be forwarded the the Kitsap County Prosecutor (or the Bremerton City Attorney) and they will most likely charge you with a crime. The Courts in Kitsap do have options that allow you to resolve the case in a way that usually will result in a dismissal. You may have to jump through some hoops, but you should be fine in the long run. I would not stress about the potential DUI. If the...
