Practice Area: Criminal defense
Description: Client was charged with Negligent Driving First Degree. He executed a U-Turn on a dark county highway late at night and near a local casino he frequented earlier. Client was investigated for DUI. He was taken to the police station and provided a breath test sample of .06. The State decided to charge him with alcohol-related Negligent Driving in the First Degree under RCW 46.61.5249. This is a simple misdemeanor exposing my client to 90 days jail, $1,000 fine, alcohol evaluation, treatment, 2 years of active probation and DOL consequences of 6 months of mandatory Ignition interlock Device with an Ignition Interlock Device License. I assembled a favorable merit package and carefully negotiated dismissal of the charges with the Prosecutor. In exchange for the dismissal, client was found "committed" on the traffic infraction of Negligent Driving Second Degree. The infraction included a small fine. Client paid the fine and left court a happy man with no criminal convictions, jail time, probation or Department of Licensing consequences.
