I was arrested on a DUI charge, the paperwork said "physical control" because the polic officers did not see me driving my vehicle, but I got stuck in a ditch. The judge released me the next day, because I had no prior criminal history, but in the...
They will look at the prior history, although it is not the most important thing. There are a number of ways your case could turn out. You should really talk to a local lawyer soon, you will get some tips on what you can do to improve your situation.
For most people the number one priority is avoiding a DUI conviction. In many cases that is possible.
I was involved in a traffic accident about a year and a half ago in SC. I was living in SC at the time, but have a WA license, as I am active duty military. I've since moved back to WA. I was hit on the roadway by 1 other car, we stopped and ca...
That will tell you if you are suspended in WA.
I live in Washington state and my fingerprints are on file with the state
I agree, I would get an attorney involved. Something that you say in a conversation with the police could be interpreted, or mis-interpreted, as involving you in a crime. Seems to me that speaking directly to the police would be a bad move.See question
Lack of medical attention while in custody at Kitsap County jail resulting in amputation.
You certainly can, and should, pursue your legal options. That means talk to a local lawyer right away. It may be a case that has a very high value, but of course a lawyer would have to talk to you about exactly what happened and investigate the case to give you any further advice.
But you definitely should talk to someone soon, these cases require action sooner rather than later.
I was working for a nursing home and one of my clients misplaced her cash and told her other care givers I stole it. The police threatened me into a confession, I didn't think I could fight it and I folded, I told them whatever they wanted. They l...
Given the time that has gone by, it is probably eligible to be expunged, or removed from your record. To qualify, you must have successfully completed all terms of probation, including the payment of any fines or costs that were imposed by the judge.
I would call a lawyer in your general area to get a quote, it might not be as expensive as you think. If you absolutely can't do that, you could contact the Northwest Justice Project, they may be able to assist you too.
I was in an car accident, the other party ran the stop sign, I hit their drivers side. I had the right of way. Wrote down what happened, their insurance covered my car, but I still have a concussion (for about 2 and a half months now). I guess my ...
I agree, call and talk to a lawyer right away. There are multiple sources to recover from, but the longer you wait the harder it will be for the lawyer to get you the compensation you are entitled to. It will be very difficult for you to get fully compensated without the help of an attorney.

I did not have a license at the time of the arrest. I have financing to purchase a new vehicle from a dealer. I do not have a license in WA State, I cannot get a license without an ignition interlock device installed. I cannot purchase a vehicle w...
I'm afraid Washington law probably won't allow the judge to waive or modify the requirement. The deferred rules are set by statute, which require you to only drive with an interlock license (IIL). To qualify for an IIL, you have to have an IID installed in a vehicle registered to you. If you can buy a car from a friend cheaply, you could in theory get your IIL, buy the new car, transfer the IID and then sell the car back to your friend.
These cases are complicated, please be aware that any advice you get here on a public website is limited; without looking at your driver's abstract and the details of your specific case, no one can give you completely reliable advice.
My daughter was hired for paid sex. When the John did not want to wear protection she refused and he then attempted to try and rape her as well as take his money back. A physical altercation took place and she stabbed him in the back. Afterwards s...
I would be happy to talk to you about this. If my office can't help you, maybe we can recommend someone who can.
Feel free to email, or call Monday.
that involved home invasion. What about apartment home invasion? Does a home owner have more self defense privileges that someone who lives in apartment? I've reviewed cases, where people have lost there conceal permits over something that appea...
You have questions that are only going to get answered if you talk directly to a lawyer in your area. They will tell you about defense strategies and costs up front, so you can make an informed decision with all the information. This will probably ease your anxiety, and you are not committed to anything. Don't hesitate to talk to more than one.See question
Warrant is for pay or appear as well as not completing 80 community service hours in leiu of ten days jail time. Mother of possible child wants paternity test to determine if I am the father. A sheriff showed up at my house yesterday while I was g...
Yes, it is legal for him or her to arrest you on an active warrant. I would be particularly concerned in your case, since the warrant is for unserved jail time.
If you contact the court right away, and at least have a date scheduled to quash the warrant, it may reduce your odds of getting arrested.
