Representing yourself on a DUI is never a good idea. Most courts won't let you even consider it. You MAY qualify for a public defender - or many dui attorneys will work with payment plans.See question
Will he get charged in the city of Seattle wa.? He didn't get any paper works or ticket from the cops either!.
Typically when an individual is arrested for DUI the police officer will forward the police report to the prosecutor's office who will file the formal charges sometime later. In King County that can take weeks or even months. Which court he will end up in depends largely on where exactly he was contacted and by whom.
HOWEVER - it's important to note that if there was a breath test above .08 or a refusal - your son's driver's license may be already in jeopardy to the department of licensing. He only has 20 days from the date of arrest to challenge this suspension.
Your son needs to consult with a DUI attorney as soon as possible.See question
A friend of mine blew three times with a .065 a 0.70 then a 0.75 but she was still cited arrested and car impounded. Is the legal limit not .080?
Such a common question.
There are TWO ways to get an alcohol related DUI in Washington.
1) Be above .08 within 2 hours of driving.
2) Have your ability to drive affected to ANY appreciable degree by alcohol.
It's not saying they'll win a .06/.07 but they CAN charge it.
Your friend should call a DUI attorney immediately. I'd be happy to discuss this with her.See question
Is it worth appealing or is it an automatic 1 year suspension in WA state?
The DOL Hearing is one of the most crucial parts of my process in representing a client. You should absolutely request the hearing and hire a skilled DUI attorney immediately to help you through it. Even though the odds of winning this hearing statistically are low - the information gathered from the hearing is often what makes the difference between a great result in court and a bad result in court.

2011. Can the courts use my dismissed case against me? They are trying to sentence me based on "2nd offense in 7 years". Is this legal? Are there any cases to support my case?
