I'm planning on signing up with a CDL truck driving paid training program. As part of the program, I must travel on the road traveling to different states to earn experience to get my CDL license. Its a contract for a year of driving across the st...
RCW 9.94A.703 sets out the mandatory and discretionary conditions of community custody. You have termed it parole - but based on the date of your conviction and length of 18 months - you are on community custody. You didn't mention the nature of your conviction but 18 months is the length of community custody for a violent crime.
You need to check the conditions listed in your Judgment and Sentence from the day you were sentenced. If you are not geographically limited in the J & S then its your CCO - community corrections officer - who is limiting you. Bring it up with him or her and see if you can work out lifting that condition.
IF it was ordered in your J & S you can bring a motion to lift that condition. You may have some luck with that based on your good work since your release. The State may argue against it and may argue there is no basis for re-sentencing. But its worth a shot. If the J&S does not have geographic restrictions and your CCO won't give you permission, bring a motion for permission to travel with in the Superior Court you were convicted in. In either case use the cause number for the case you are on community custody for. Good luck.
I am a private investigator trying to help my client. I have asked the county legal dept for it and they cannot come up with one. I asked the prosecuting office and they promised to file it but could not get a copy. The case is over a year old and...
criminal rule 3.2.1 says a finding of probable cause must be made within 48 hours. That's why Yakima has a Satuday probable cause hearing. It's just the State and the Judge but it is an official proceeding.
criminal rule 3.2 says if probable cause is not found then the accused shall be released without conditions.
The court file should contain the SIR - a sworn police officer statement and the docket and/or court orders should reflect the finding.
If not the defendant should be released. Have you checked with his or her attorney on this issue?
I was caught shoplifting at a Shopko. The loss prevention officer grabbed my arm as I was standing by the door and took me back to the office saying I was under arrest. I was freaked out, I panicked. I told the guy I did steal and I was extremel...
Shopko is in Union Gap so you should expect a summons with a court date from Union Gap Municipal Court. Which is now handled in Yakima County District Court. If you gave the officer your current address that should be where the summons is sent.
If you don't have much criminal history it should be a fairly easy case to resolve and perhaps without a criminal conviction.
What happens if I missed the court date? I was never notified of a court date. I wrote the judge in a timely manner after the ticket and never got anything back. What will happen now?
Call the court and ask them if you have an upcoming court date or if a warrant was issued for you. If you have a warrant you can set a motion to quash the warrant. You can hire an attorney to make that easier and quicker if you like.
If not after the warrant is quashed you can get a public defender.
If it's a DWLS 3 that's pretty simple. But if you are a habitual traffic offender and are charged with DWLS 1 that's a mush more serious case.
Also update your address with the DOL and the court.
I'm being charged with four counts of delivery of a controlled substance. The name of the city is wrong. Does this matter?
The search warrant must describe with particularity the place to be searched. So if the warrant describes the place as 123 N. 4th Toppenish and they search 123 N. 4th Yakima, that could be a significant enough of an issue to suppress the evidence of the search. But if the City is just misspelled, that would likely be considered by the court as a clerical error and have no effect at all. But to be certain you need to have an attorney read the search warrant and the affidavit in support of the warrant. If you have a public defender he or she should be able to help. Or you could hire an attorney who practices criminal defense in your area, such as myself.See question
I live in washington,I let the cops in someone way there doc was looking for,he had drugs,I told them he brought them,they were not mine,now the cop is pulling me over threading me to work for him or he will ,take me to jail 3months later he says ...
He cannot force you to be a confidential informant. For a small fee a private criminal defense attorney could get the cops contact information and call him to tell him "my client is not involved in drugs and he has no desire tone a confidential informant. Please stop calling." And I would follow it up with a letter to further cover those bases.
After that if he still harasses you a letter to the Chief or supervisor should do the trick.

I was convicted of forgery in 1974, ( $ 20.00 check ) in Washington State. I was given 5 years probation and paid restitution, my probation was revoked for failure to appear. I was then incarcerated and served 1 year in a correctional facility whi...
I agree with the other attorneys. You should have an attorney look at your copies of your documents restoring your rights and vacation of your record.
When you had that done the clerk of the court is supposed to send copies of the orders to WSP. But I have found they often fail to do that. My practice is to send copies to the WSP and also the county Sheriff of the county in which you were convicted. That helps to keep them from reporting the information.
Also, the private groups that do background checks sometimes have false data. If you can find what companies have been used you can send them a demand letter and a copy of your orders.

You should set an appointment with a criminal defense attorney right away. whether or not you are exposed to Felony charges will be controlled, in part, by your contract with RAC.
An attorney may be able to work out a payment plan and help you resolve this without the making a police report.
My office is in Selah. If you want to make an appointment just call my office at 509-594-4949.

I have been hunting for over 30 years, I have never received any citation, I don't even have a traffic ticket.
I have handled big game cases in Kittitas recently. You should be eligible for a stay of proceedings, which is basically a slow dismissal. Also an attorney should look at the facts of your case to find weakness in the State's case. Often I find that the Fish and Wildlife officers make mistakes with Miranda warnings and sometimes searches of vehicles.

Your thoughts about the stop are right on point. The reason for the stop is very technical. If your license plate light is factory equipment, you have a good motion to suppress evidence based on the lack of probable cause to stop you.
If you are looking for an attorney to represent you, I practice criminal defense in your area.
