ANACORTES MUNICIPAL COURT
Here is where we render our first warning. The prosecuting attorney for Anacortes is noted to be very tough and often unwilling to compromise. Do not expect sympathy and do expect a very cold hearted approach. If your BAC was over 0.15 or if there was an accident you can expect the City to request you be taken into custody or given very strict conditions of release. If this is not your first charge of DUI, you can expect conditions to be even worse. You can further expect the Judge to be inflexible and issue conditions or release that would not be issued in other courts. This is why you need an experienced Anacortes DUI attorney from the very beginning. As Anacortes DUI attorneys it is our job to examine the police reports, investigate the field sobriety tests, and of course the validity of the DUI breath test, blood draw, or refusal of either. There are many procedures and policies that must be followed and we understand that the failure to follow such procedures may render results inadmissible at trial, therefore giving your case a better chance of dismissal or an amendment.
In Anacortes DUI cases, the accused will appear in court within days weeks of the arrest. The only exception to this generalize rule is for drug DUIs or when the court is waiting for the results of a blood draw. In such cases the person accused of DUI in Anacortes can expect to be notified of an arraignment several weeks following the arrest. At the arraignment the Judge will advise the defendant of the charge, accept a plea of not guilty and give conditions of release to the person accused of DUI. Having an experienced Anacortes DUI attorney by yourself is a must in this court.
We understand the importance of a good DUI defense attorney.

Under Washington DUI laws, your driver's license will be suspended if you are arrested for suspicion of drunk driving. The duration depends on your blood alcohol content, age, number of previous driving drunk convictions and whether you submitted to a breath test or not. You can however, keep driving until or unless the Department actually suspends your driving privilege.
Importantly, you have the right to challenge the suspension of your license. To do so you must file a Department of Licensing Hearing Request form within twenty days of your arrest. The Hearing process is not held in a courtroom though it does include presentation of evidence gathered by police. You stand a better chance of retaining your driving privileges with legal counsel. Skagit County DUI Attorney David N. Jolly can help you schedule a hearing and represent you at the proceedings. Time is critical though if you want to keep your license, so contact him now.
