Q. Do you have to go to rehab after a first-time DUI?
A: It depends on how the case is resolved. If the person is convicted, WA law requires an evaluation for treatment. The evaluation can recommend anything from a one day alcohol / drug information school, up to two years of treatment. Different types of resolutions (diversion, deferred prosecution) have different treatment requirements.
Q. I want to have a 40 year felony record expunged. How do go about doing that?
A: I would contact a criminal defense lawyer who practices near the courthouse where the conviction was entered. They can tell you if your particular case is eligible to be expunged, and how the process works. If you are eligible, it can normally be done in less than a month.
Q. Is there statute of limitations on having an interlock device?
A: That sounds right, the four month requirement would apply to someone in that situation. It's too bad you got wrong information from them in 2015, but based on what you have said I would expect you to have the four month requirement. I can't say for sure without looking at your history and your drivers' abstract. As for the requirement ever running out or expiring, no it won't. It will never come off your license until it's completed.
Q. i'm 16 got a ticket for violation of my permit, no insurance and 30 over. Can i pay the ticket without a parent?
A: If you went to the courthouse and paid the ticket, there is no reason anything would ever be sent to your house by the court. However, DOL will likely mail you a warning letter for having an infraction appear on your record. Plus, your intermediate license will get revoked if you get two infractions before you are 18. Therefore you really should talk to a lawyer about how to keep this one off your record. If you were to get a second one, it might be too late. Best advice is definitely to talk to your parents and get a lawyer involved to protect your license.
Q. Felony harrassment Washington state
A: A year is certainly a long delay, but it is legal and not unheard of. I would definitely consult with a defense lawyer prior to the court date. Good luck.
Q. I was hit by a car on my bicycle and the driver told the 911 operator there were no injuries. He knew my knee was hurt
A: If there was a call made to 911, that information can be tracked down. If you have substantial injuries and need financial compensation, then it is worth contacting a lawyer to investigate. There may be reason to pursue criminal charges as well, which a lawyer could certainly help you with.
Q. I was pulled over and given a driving while suspended infraction and no ignition interlock infraction. Had a DUI in 2012
A: Probably. The five years can get extended in certain circumstances, so someone would have to look at the court docket to confirm that they closed their jurisdiction. If you didn't have probation violations, and never missed court dates, then it should have closed five years from the day of sentence.
Q. What is the felony harassment statute of limitations in washington state?
A: Most felonies are three years.
Q. In the State of Washington, what does “deferred” mean pertaining to a charge.
A: Different courts unfortunately sometimes use the term differently. There is a statute (RCW 3.66.067) that allows district or municipal court judges to 'defer' a sentence. That means that even if there is a guilty plea, at the end of probation the judge can allow the defendant to withdraw the plea and have the charge dismissed. Not many courts use this option in my experience, but that could be what happened. You should ask your lawyer to explain what happened in your case, or hire a new lawyer to look up the court file and go through it for you. You may need to file a separate motion for dismissal under the deferral statute.
