I haven't failed a ignition interlock device blow test or a rolling test. There's been times where the device takes a while to analyze so that has raised some concern. I have gone drinking at least once or twice a month and I wait several hours th...
Yes, all this bad stuff could happen. You need actual legal advice from YOUR attorney. Call him or her today!See question
The gross misdemeanor is an "assault - sexual motiatuon" - will the charge show up? I'm in WA state, currently jobless and looking for jobs within or outside of WA Charge was not until 2 days ago (Wednesday) - how fast does it take before it goe...
It really depends on the background check that is run. Most companies check for convictions only. If, that's the case it will not show up. A more thorough check could reveal pending charges (and even dismissed charges).See question
Was driving. I was pulled over. Taken back to station and released.
I'm not sure what your actual question is. I'm would guess you have lots of them. Being arrested for DUI is not an every day occurence and most people have no idea what happens next or what their options are. Schedule a free consultation with a DUI attorney to get some answers to your questions. You should probably do so sooner rather than later. You have 20 days to file for a DUI hearing with DOL. If you don't do this your license may be suspended without a hearing.See question
My husband was pulled over for expired tags that expired a week shy of 2 months ago. Due to me being the only registered owner, would I be able to go to court in place of my husband? We want to try to get it reduced as we were never mailed a renew...
The driver is the person who is responsible, not the registered owner. You cannot represent someone else in court unless you are their attorney. Many courts will allow you to do mitigation by mail.See question
I have a public defender. I'm being pressured to take a plea but I'm not guilty. What happened is this: I bought a car from a friend of my neighbor and resold the car. When it was time to change over the title the person I sold it to was told it w...
If there is probable cause to arrest the police can search a person as part of the arrest process. For probable cause it only matters what information was known to the officers at the time. So the fact that they have agreed to drop the charge you were arrested for does not by itself make the search illegal.
There is no way for anyone on this website to predict anything about your case without seeing all of the evidence. This website is not a forum for legal advice. We can tell what the law is. We cannot give you any advice as to what you should do with your case. Im not your attorney and I know nothing about your case.
Bottom line is that if you don't trust your attorneys advice you can usually hire another one. The sooner in the process you do this the more likely it is that the court will allow it.
Will hiring a different attorney help you? Who knows. It could make things better or it could make things worse. There is no way to predict this.
Finally, stop posting facts about your case in public. The information is not confidential and could be used against you.See question
I was raided and I had police uniforms in my home and they found drugs but I only have one charge left and it is possession. I am going to court Friday to plead guilty.
You set the case for a guilty plea and you have not discussed these things with your attorney? Pick up the phone and give your attorney a call.See question
I was thinking about handing a fake doctors note to my recovery teacher to excuse an absence. Can they actually call the doctor and confirm that I was there, or confirm the illness on the doctors note? Or does that violate HIPPA?
Attorneys are forbidden from assisting an individual in committing a crime or a fraud upon the court (directly or indirectly). If you commit a fraud like this will you get caught? Maybe.See question
She is now on probation for 18 months and was arrested last week for not reporting
There is no such thing as an "empty bag of methamphetamines." Either the bag was empty or it had some amount of meth (even if just trace amounts. The prosecution could have opted to charge her with a misdemeanor instead of a felony. This is within the discretion of the prosecuting authority and she does not have a right to a reduction. If she plead guilty to a misdemeanor she would still have been given probation and a requirement that she complete treatment. Thus, she would probably be in exactly the same situation anyway.
Most addicts are very manipulative and two things are often true in these situations: (1) you probably only have part of the story and (2) focusing on getting treatment is more important than focusing on how fair she feels she has been treated by the system.
It's heartbreaking, speaking as an attorney and a father, to watch young adults destroy their lives for drugs.See question

Having a detailed and private discussion with an attorney is where you should start. The attorney may be able help your husband make amends to the store without exposing himself to further liability. He or she may even be able to negotiate a compromise of a misdemeanor or other settlement that protects him from criminal liability. The days when you go back to the store, say your sorry, pay for the damages and everyone lives happily ever-after are long gone. Going back to the store will almost certainly get him charged with a crime. Doing nothing, and just waiting until the police show up, is probably also be a bad plan. Your husband needs specific legal advice of an attorney who knows all of the relevant facts. He should probably get this sooner rather than later.See question

The judicail information system where this data is kept is very simple. "D" is the code for dismissal; "NG" for not guilty verdict; "G" for guilt, and so on. There is no code for mistaken identity. If this is a misdemeanor charge you may be able to petitoner WSP to remove this information.
See http://www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/docs/misc/expungement_checklist.pdf to determine if you qualify. If you do it will take you about 15 minutes and cost you nothing.
The government is generally immune from lawsuits of this kind. Fair? No, people are falsly labeled by the system all the time to no fault of their own. Fixable? Probably.See question
