He was the only one involved. No injury or damage to anyone or thing other than himself and his vehicle. He is 16 years old and alcohol level was .283 which I know is extremely high. He has never ever been involved in any bad behavior, he is a great student and athlete. I need to know what my options are to protect his future as I know this is a very serious offence. We live in the state of Washington which is where the accidient happened but he also lives part time with his father in Oregon which is where he and the vehicle were liseanced. Please help....

I was pulled over for drunk driving the other night and I blew a .088. The cop wrote on my ticket thing that the charge was for minor operating a vehicle after alcohol consumption. When he asked if i had been drinking I was honest and told him yes. I was really respectful to the cop and didnt fight anything. What could be the penalties? I looked it up but I couldnt find anything stating the consequences for a person charged with a DUI who is under the age of 18. Also, this is my first time ever dealing with police, so I have no previous record.
I don't practice in Washington, but more than likely you will get a summons to appear in juvenile court. In theory they...
I got a Minor DUI about a month ago, and I'm trying to get it reduced to an MIP and also get a diversion. This is the first time I have ever gotten in trouble with the law. The prosecuting attorney offered to reduce it to negligent driving, and 5 days work crew with some fines. The thing is, negligent driving stays on my record and I'm only 17 so I can't do work crew, so I would have to go to jail for at least one day, which I'm trying to avoid. I cannot afford a lawyer but I don't qualify for a court appointed one. I did have a consult with a lawyer though, but I still have some questions. Since I am trying to plea the charges down myself, how would I go about trying to do this? More specifically, what kind of things could I present to the prosecuting attorney or the judge, to prove that I'm a good kid and that I'm not going to do this again, that could help me plea it down?
If there are no proof problems in the case, a Neg2 is not a bad deal. You can do a DUI victim's panel and/or do a CD...

I am on deferred prosecution for a 2nd DUI. Two months before my 5 year probation was up, I was arrested for a domestic dispute - which I know is a probation violation. The trial has been pushed back because the other party is refusing to talk, however, if I get charged for the domestic dispute, what am I looking at for the DUI? I have already gone through treatment and have had a blower in my car. Would I have to do jail time or fines, both? I am nervous for the unknown and the court appointed attorney does not have an suggestions or answers for me.
While many courts will wait for a resolution of the underlying case before deciding whether a probation violation has...
8 years ago I was together with a man in Oregon Lane County. while dating him he was cited with driving under the influence, and currently own/operator of a bar and Grill. as a part of his plea agreement strategy he agreed to have chemical substance treatment to get a reduction in sentence and received// .I should have realized that something was wrong when I cosigned for his treatment. Subsequently in the last few months he filed for bankruptcy and placed the bill for the treatment into the bankruptcy. I was never notified. I just was served suit for the outstanding balance. I now live in eastern Washington... Please help me in the right direction. I was pretty sure that i would have been notified by the bankruptcy court and been invited to the meeting of the debtors. Do i file ch 7 to?
