WHATCOM DUI INFO

At the conclusion of any criminal case in Whatcom County, but in particular driving under the influence cases, every defendant is placed on probation.  A frequent question our DUI lawyers are asked is, “what is probation?”  A simple answer is that probation is when the State monitors the individual post disposition (conclusion of the case) to ensure compliance with the court’s final Order. A better answer to this common question is that the probation department checks the individual’s file monthly to ensure the person is paying the required fines, completing the mandatory tasks ordered by the Whatcom County Judge (such as the alcohol evaluation, ADIS class and DUI Victim Panel) and has no new criminal charges.  The lack of compliance, meaning, if the person does not do what he or she is supposed to do, will require the defendant to appear in Whatcom County District Court to explain why they failed to follow the Judge’s orders.  Lack of compliance may result in additional jail.  As Whatcom County DUI attorneys we always advise our clients to complete the required programs prior to the final disposition.  The lessons the risk of failure and also may lower the costs of probation.  While probation is mandatory, the Judge has the ability to impose supervised probation or unsupervised probation.  Supervised probation is far more costly and requires monthly meetings with a probation officer.  Unsupervised probation is less expensive and does not require the defendant to meet with anyone.
