On a Saturday was passing 2 cars on a 2 lane road. Although there was a bend in the road, it was a passing zone. As I passed the first car, I noticed an incoming car. I could not merge back into my lane because there was no room. I could not merg...
Since you were not given anything on the spot, the Sheriff's case (reports) will be forwarded to the County Prosecutor's office for a charging decision. You can call the County Prosecutor's Office and see if anything has been filed, and if so, if you have been charged. They maybe even able to tell you what your court date will be. Also, make sure your mailing address is current with DOL. Any correspondence sent to you will be at the last know address that DOL has on file. Make sure you don't miss a Court Date and you ought to contact a local defense attorney.See question

I was trying to pass a car and the car I was trying to pass sped up. I ended up in a head on collision which caused the death of the oncoming car. What is going happen? I did blood on site no drugs or alcohol involved on my side.
I'd stop talking about the facts online. Reach out to a reputable defense attorney in your area. This could have very serous consequences if you do not handle it properly. Vehicular Assault possibly. Get consultations from a few attorneys and see who you are comfortable with.See question

You will need to get a well respected, local defense attorney. I would imagine that they will try to work out a "compromise of misdemeanor" with the store. Make an appointment with someone and ask about a compromise. This should not be the end of the world for you. Good luck.See question

This is crazy and I'm a little embarrassed. I am a 57 year old man and my girlfriend is 32. A 17 year old girl/woman she works with has been trying to come home with her and have sex with us for a month or so. It scares the hell out of me actually...
The age of consent is 16 in WA. There is no crime UNLESS the older individual has some position of authority over the younger individual. This could be a manager, teacher, coach etc... In your scenario my immediate concern without knowing more is the relationship between your girlfriend and the 17 year old since they work together. Does your girlfriend have any authority over the younger lady? If so, the one with the most risk is your girlfriend. If your girlfriend was charged with a crime, a creative prosecutor could potentially add you in as a conspirator or an accomplice. If they are equals at work, all of you are probably fine. Hope this helps.See question
I am interested in a man who is older than me and I would like to know if it is legal for us to have sex. I want to but i don't want to get him in trouble so i want to make sure its legal first.
Yes, The age of consent is 16. No crime committed. This is the case UNLESS the older person is in a position of authority like a teacher, coach etc...See question
I have had misdemeanor warrants for probation violation for 13 years. The court let me move to VA while on probation.
I would plan this out before you head back to Washington. A good local attorney should be able to streamline this for you. You want to have this all orchestrated so that you turn your self in and then appear very quickly on a calendar. Don't turn yourself in on a Friday because there is a good chance that you will have to sit there through the weekend before you are seen by a judge. Anyway, a good, local attorney can walk you through all this. It is actually pretty simple. Best of luck.See question
Will a police stop and ask me or a teacher?
You are fine having a tattoo. Who ever applies the tattoo is the only party that could get in trouble. It doesn't mean that people wont ask... this just means that I don't believe that you would get in trouble. It you are using a fake ID or something, that may be a different story.See question
previous deferral was 3-4 years ago
No, but there may be other ways to resolve it. Typically a Deferral is our last resort. Contact a local attorney who handles infractions. There may be a better way to resolve it than a Deferral anyway. Best of luck.See question
