I am not looking to retain legal representation as I'm indigent and forced to use the public defender. I use Marijuana for medical reasons that do not fall under the legal definitions of Washington and fear more trouble if denied access as per the rules of probation. I feel confident that I can control myself in the confines of my cell for the maximum sentence however I know added fines and sentencing for probation violations could exceed the original sentencing terms. I get what I did was wrong and am willing to take the punishment but not over the course of however long they keep me under their thumb. I really feel I'm on a slippery slope into a life of absconding from justice if I'm forced into it. Please help! Can't I just do the maximum and then leave with only fines to repay Was?
I really don't understand your question. You can have the court deny probation and sentence you to the max sentence....
In 2012, as an active duty U.S Marine, I was charged with an on base DUI aboard Camp Pendleton, California. I received a (1) year suspension of my driver's license (on base) as well as a mandatory (1) week driving course aboard the base. Sentencing was carried out by the Base Magistrate. I also received Battalion level Non-Judicial Punishment from my command for the incident. I left active duty in 2013 after contract fulfillment and was informed upon my arrival home that my license was suspended by the state as of my exit from active service.
Clearly, the military shared the DUI information with the State and that's the reason for your suspension. You shoudl...

I am in the process of deciding if I should opt for deferred prosecution. 63 years old, no criminal history, first offense but feel I have an alcohol problem.

Got charged last Friday for first DUI and went to court today with a DUI attorney who I met with prior to court and decided we are going to go the deferred route as I will benefit from treatment and won't have to spend time in jail or lose job and I am wondering about when we were in court the lawyer said a plea of not guilty? Is this a pretrial diversion for my deferred prosecution and will be changed to guilty at next court appearance?
If your lawyer had you enter into a diversion program or deferred prosecution then a not guilty plea was the right plea...
Today I went to my first court appearance after receiving my first DUI last Friday and called a DUI attorney who I met with and he went to court with me to plead not guilty and do a deferred prosecution and have court in a month. To hire the attorney it would be $3,000 total, including $1500 down. Is this the normal cost? Should I find a different-more affordable lawyer if there is one? Can I get a public defender? Thanks
The most important thing is that you trust your attorney. A deferred prosecution is a five year commitment, and you'll...
