I did not have a license at the time of the arrest. I have financing to purchase a new vehicle from a dealer. I do not have a license in WA State, I cannot get a license without an ignition interlock device installed. I cannot purchase a vehicle w...
I'm afraid Washington law probably won't allow the judge to waive or modify the requirement. The deferred rules are set by statute, which require you to only drive with an interlock license (IIL). To qualify for an IIL, you have to have an IID installed in a vehicle registered to you. If you can buy a car from a friend cheaply, you could in theory get your IIL, buy the new car, transfer the IID and then sell the car back to your friend.
These cases are complicated, please be aware that any advice you get here on a public website is limited; without looking at your driver's abstract and the details of your specific case, no one can give you completely reliable advice.
My daughter was hired for paid sex. When the John did not want to wear protection she refused and he then attempted to try and rape her as well as take his money back. A physical altercation took place and she stabbed him in the back. Afterwards s...
I would be happy to talk to you about this. If my office can't help you, maybe we can recommend someone who can.
Feel free to email, or call Monday.
that involved home invasion. What about apartment home invasion? Does a home owner have more self defense privileges that someone who lives in apartment? I've reviewed cases, where people have lost there conceal permits over something that appea...
You have questions that are only going to get answered if you talk directly to a lawyer in your area. They will tell you about defense strategies and costs up front, so you can make an informed decision with all the information. This will probably ease your anxiety, and you are not committed to anything. Don't hesitate to talk to more than one.See question
Warrant is for pay or appear as well as not completing 80 community service hours in leiu of ten days jail time. Mother of possible child wants paternity test to determine if I am the father. A sheriff showed up at my house yesterday while I was g...
Yes, it is legal for him or her to arrest you on an active warrant. I would be particularly concerned in your case, since the warrant is for unserved jail time.
If you contact the court right away, and at least have a date scheduled to quash the warrant, it may reduce your odds of getting arrested.
I was recently released from probation from a deferred program. The judge at sentencing 5 years ago added 2 years on to the minimum 2 years required by D.O.L (at that time) shortly after the laws changed to a 5 year minimum by D.O.L so now the D....
I think you should definitely make that request! If the DOL is doing a 5 year order, and the judge's intent was for you to have the IID for four years, you stand a great shot to have that shortened up.
There are some things you will want to have done before you note the hearing, but that is easy stuff.
This is my first and only conviction of any kind it was at the local Goodwill. I paid all court costs and all monies Goodwill was asking for before my court date. I work for the government how will it affect my job?
I am hearing two different things here, 'conviction' and 'misdemeanor compromise'. It can't be both, and not knowing the details no one can give you a real answer. Feel free to give me a call and we can figure out what happened in your case, then I can answer your question.See question
He was convicted of sexually assaulting our daughter in military court but hasnt had to pay any reparations for what he did. He is currently serving 34 years in Leavenworth, but my daughter is still having to pick up the pieces and therapists aren...
As to why it was handled in federal court only, it sounds like they had a very strong case against him and decided not to send any portion of the case to county authorities. Or perhaps the county declined to pursue it, because they learned how much time he was facing in the federal system. I'm speculating, there are a lot of ways it may have been worked out.
As for a civil claim, it sounds like the time to file is rapidly approaching, if not passed already. Given his prison sentence, he presumably doesn't have significant assets; but you should probably talk to a lawyer about the possibility of maybe recovering from a homeowner's policy, or otherwise to see if there is value in filing a claim. Your daughter's ongoing treatment will surely continue to cost money.
While driving she has secretly videoed me drinking l, having open containers, and doing I with our son in the back seat. She's also pregnant. Can their be child endangerment charges?
Depends on the strength of the video. Could a jury find your ability to drive was impaired, by the consumption of alcohol? And as long as you are married, you can object to your wife being called as a witness against you.
I cannot imagine a criminal prosecutor pursuing such a case, but they have certainly surprised me in the past.
A couple weeks ago I got caught shoplifting with my friend in Walmart in Washington state. The LP woman did not call the police & we were not arrested, she did say because we helped each other that we would both pay together. In my letter it asks ...
Washington law allows the store to impose a civil penalty of up to $200. It is completely separate from a possible criminal charge. That doesn't mean you shouldn't pay it, but whether the local prosecutor files a charge against you is not determined by the civil penalty.
Walmart does generally forward shoplift reports to the police, and prosecutors in Kitsap county almost always file criminal charges. I recommend you talk to a lawyer here before that happens; it may be possible that a deal could be worked out before you are charged, keeping your record completely clear.
My sister has been going in to Safeway, target, Fred Meyers, and wal-mart stores. Getting a shopping cart full of items and then walking right out of the store. She has not been caught or even followed. I was wondering if they just let her go beca...
Shoplifters get away with it more often than not. She might never get caught. However, stores are definitely more aggressive than ever with shoplifters. It could be that they see her on video, but haven't had someone in the right place to physically detain her. Therefore, they will keep watching for her to come back. So yes; it could be that when a store finally does catch her, she gets charged with multiple crimes.See question
