About Washington DUI
Under Washington DUI laws, there are three ways the state can charge a motorist with DUI.
· Registering a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher within two hours of being stopped for suspicion of drunk driving. There are strict guidelines for the results to be admissible in court.
· Being under the influence of drugs or liquor. This can be charged without a breath or blood test, and it is based on an officer's observation of perceived impairment.
· Being under the combined influence of drugs and liquor. Drug DUI cases typically involves a multi-step procedure conducted by a Drug Recognition Expert, with strict guidelines for accuracy.
Cases of suspected DUI are very complex, both legally and scientifically, though they can be challenged successfully. Skagit County DUI Attorney David Jolly will conduct a thorough investigation of your case and mount the proper drunk driving defense. He will question whether the officer had probable cause to stop you, determine whether you were forced to perform a field sobriety test, review the arrest report for violations in procedure and Washington Administrative Code, challenge evidence and review equipment maintenance and calibration records.
If the prosecution cannot prove every point of its argument, there is a possibility of having your charges reduced and thus minimizing the effects and penalties of a DUI. You may even be able to have your case dismissed. Call Mount Vernon DUI Lawyer David Jolly for more information.
Penalties for WA Drunk Driving
There are very strict mandatory minimum punishments if convicted of driving under the influence in Skagit County. Being found guilty of DUI could lead to fines, loss of license, loss of auto insurance or significantly higher premiums, mandatory alcohol treatment, points on your driving record, jail and the required installation of an ignition interlock device for even first offenders.
A criminal record could impact your employment options and prohibit entry to foreign countries. Canada in particular is more effectively enforcing its long-standing policy of denying entry to those with a criminal record, even if it involves a misdemeanor.
If your case of DUI in Washington is not handled properly, it could disrupt your life. For experienced and qualified help with your DUI, contact Mount Vernon DUI Attorney David Jolly.
About Your Washington Driver's License
If you refused to submit to a breath test or you registered a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher during an arrest for drunk driving in Skagit County, Washington, the state will move to suspend your driver's license. Suspensions are imposed by the Department of Licensing and are separate from the criminal DUI proceedings.
The length of a license suspension depends on several factors, including the number of prior alcohol related traffic offenses and your BAC at the time of your arrest. The duration ranges from 90 days to four years.
You have the right to challenge the suspension though you must petition the DOL for a special hearing within 20 days of the date of your WA DUI arrest. If you do not, your license will be automatically suspended.
Skagit County Washington DUI Attorney David Jolly can schedule a DOL hearing for you and represent you. The hearing is just as complex as the criminal case, and chances of retaining your driving privileges are greater with legal assistance. Time is critical; so for the best result don't delay in contacting Attorney David Jolly.
