Burien Law

Got a DUI in California and will be moving to WA for work. Court ordered to enroll in a first offender DUI class in WA and send proof of completion.
Its not exactly clear to me what California considers to be a "first offender DUI class" as we have no such animal here...
I got pulled over because the officer said I was going 59 in a 50 when I had my car set on cruse control? He makes a brief statement saying that my thinking process is slow, so he asks me to do a sobriety test and didn't do so good I guess cause it was freezing and made me take my heels off so I was barefoot. What the officer also didn't consider was I have Mental Problems for my slow thinking and slow learner. I get handcuffed and put in the back of the police car, He didn't give me a evaluation and takes me straight to the hospital to draw my blood. After he was going to let me go he decides to keep me because I have a baby father who was on Washingtons Most Wanted. I get questioned about his where a bout and they told me I would go to jail if I don't tell. But never had a option.
It will not be handled differently than alcohol, if WA law is similar to CO. Impairment is the issue whether by drugs...
instead of giving me the breathalyzer machine to bring home they gave me my ankle bracele that has the alcohol monitoring in it 24/7 can they do that ? isn't that going against the judge
Yes, as frustrating as this may be for you to achieve compliance, this is not only permissible, it is the preferred...

There are a number of factors that Judge consider when imposing sentence. The most significant is criminal history....
In 2008 I had a DUI amended to reckless driving, and now in 2011 I got a new DUI. While in court yesterday my public defender and the judge were uncertain as to the way this would effect my license? My public defender thinks it will only suspend my license for 90 days yet the judge thinks it would be 2 years. Either way my public defender said I could get an interlock license and still drive. Can I get some clarification as to the consequences if I just admit guilt and take the 230 days in jail??
The judge is correct. The new DUI would be considered a second DUI for all sentencing purposes. The length of the...
133 days have passed, can I request a motion to dismiss if I'm receive a court date?
I believe the state has two years to file the charges. I have seen charging take anywhere from six months to one year.
I was charged with a DUI, however, I was not the driver of the vehicle. The other person bailed after only making it a few blocks from my condo with my car and hiding it next to some bushes on private property. She ended up going back to my condo to sleep and also taking the keys with her. She also took most of my clothes and shoes for some reason. We were both drunk, however, she was going on an alcohol run and she didn't make it. I got out of the vehicle and slept/hid in the bushes for whatever reason. When the cops came, they decided I was the driver, as the car was registered to me. They took me to the hospital for a blood draw. Is there any way I can get out of it, or am I screwed? What can I do? Thanks in advance.
You're screwed in the sense that you will likely be changed with DUI. The cops are never going to believe you weren't...
