It's the Season for Giving and this is the time you might want to try and negotiate your case. But accidents indicate some level of carelessness and when combined with alcohol, can amount to what's called Negligent Driving 1st Degree which is less severe than a DUI, but still a criminal offense. If you are over 21 and can show you were not affected by alcohol or drugs, you should demand a dismissal!See question
Does this count as 2 for Washington? My 1st court date is in less then a week. What can I expect?
If the court knows that you have been arrested for a DUI in the past, they could make a finding that there is risk of violence to the community (something as simple as having an accident might count). If the court makes that finding based on your prior, then you could be facing a high bail and other restrictive conditions. Look us up at www.mytrafficman.net.See question
Was pulled over, officer stated I wasn't driving straight.
The answer is yes, but having a prior in Hawaii is not something your are obligated to volunteer to the prosecution, and having an attorney to shield you from that line of questioning will be crucial at your arraignment. Judges use prior offenses to make a finding of risk of violence to the community. That finding could lead to a high bail amount and you could end up in jail if you can't afford to make the bail. So, the better question is how will they find out about your prior offense or when will they find out about your prior offense. Learn more...See question

Most counties and cities in Washington State have formal or informal policies with regard to first time offenders like yourself, but you will always have to overcome the presumption made by prosecutors that this is only your first time getting caught, but not your first time. And, you have to remember that to prove a DUI, the prosecutionSee question

You can fight the new Charge, and try to get it reduced or dismissed, but even that is no guarantee that you won't be punished for violating conditions of your probation (which last for 5years on a DUI, and only 2years on a lesser offense like Reckless Driving or Negligent Driving if your DUI was reduced).
It's just as Important to have an attorney now as it was to have one in 2009. The probation court only has to find that you probably committed the DWLS 3 to impose a penalty, so even if the DWLS case can't be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, the probation court can still punish you.

had a court date for domestic and overslept,didnt make it,called and left a message,havent heard back yet
Most courts in Washington will not issue a warrant immediately. The court will, however, authorize the warrant immediately, but it usually does not arrive to law enforcement until the close of business, so as a practical matter, if you appear personally (not over the phone), you might be able to pay a fee to quash the warrant and reschedule your hearing, unless the judge set a bail amount.
To avoid getting arrested, you should call the court first and see if a warrant was authorized. If they do not respond, assume it was and leave a message. Also send in a request to schedule a quash warrant hearing with the court if you can't arrange that over the phone. If you learn there is a bail amount required, then you should go into court prepared to pay that amount. Also, you can contact a bail bond company in advance and ask them to be prepared to post a bond on your behalf.
The last strategy for avoiding jail is to contact the prosecutor's office and arrange for a plea the day you appear in court, especially if you can negotiate a deal that involves no jail, or maybe just jail alternatives. that's where hiring a good attorney always helps.
