    Typically not. If it was an administrative action, say from a DUI, the statute specifically explains that the suspension action should not be stayed pending appeal, but for in a few limited situations. It's possible, but rare, and the attorney general will almost certainly object. From your question, I can't tell the basis for the suspension, so the answer may be different depending on your facts. To get a reliable answer, you are going to have to talk to an attorney in detail.

    Talk to an attorney before you turn yourself in, and definitely before you make any kind of statement to police. It is very common that these types of charges can be reduced, or dismissed entirely, with a good lawyer. Talk to someone who practices in your area today if you can. And definitely don't say anything about the facts of the case on a public website!

    I recommend you call a lawyer right away to get your questions answered. Any attorney is going to need a lot of information from you in order to explain what has happened, and what your options are from here.

  4. What is the difference between Eluding Police Vehicle and Attempt to Elude in Washington State? Need help / ideas.

    There is only "attempting to elude" the police. Oddly, not actually a crime for eluding, although the terminology is commonly confused. Sounds as though there is a very compelling defense, you should probably work on seeking counsel who can help.

    Sounds like the police sent the report to DOL to take action on your license. If so, I would certainly expect you will get charged, most likely with DUI. We can only give you possible answers until you actually call a lawyer and talk in person. With your name and the dates involved, a DUI lawyer can tell you exactly what is going on. I would not make any further mention of the facts of your case on a public website like this.

    The prosecutor can always change / add charges if they can be proven, regardless of what the officer cited. That office has ultimate charging discretion. Depending on the court, diversion may be an option for you. However, there may be even better options available, depending on the strength of the case and the defense. Call a lawyer right away, don't wait until you appear in court; you want to be prepared prior to seeing a judge for the first time.

    I agree with the other answers. The rule generally says that the accused person has a right to trial within 90 days, but there are a variety of ways for the judge, or the prosecutor, or the defense attorney to extend that time. Most important, however, is the accused person. If you want the case resolved, you can have that power. Your attorney can push the case forward if that is your wish. Communication from and with the attorney is the key. If you don't have that with your current lawyer,...

    Not a crime. But not going to make the arrest process go very smoothly for the individual who wishes to choose that particular time and place to exercise his/her speech rights. Also, the statements will be reported, and often are admissible in evidence at trial. Therefore, the prosecutor gets to tell the jury what the defendant said, usually resulting in the jury's attitude toward the defendant being negatively impacted. Makes the laywer's work at trial much harder. Should there be a...

    It is a relative standard. The person's weight really doesn't matter as much as the person's conditioning to consuming alcohol. In other words, persons with similar tolerance to alcohol should similarly affected by alcohol at a .09 regardless of their body weight. In the world of attorneys and judges, a .09 is not a very high test result. Certainly high enough for a conviction, but good representation can certainly help to avoid that.

    It is certainly possible, but not mandatory. Did you discuss the consequences of a plea on your old probation with the lawyer in the new case? Usually, especially if the new case was alcohol related, the old court is going to take some action. That doesn't necessarily mean jail, it could also mean community service or a fine. Probation violation sanctions vary WIDELY from court to court.
