Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. Because I want to provide you with the most accurate answer possible, do you mind if I take a moment to review your question?
Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.
Thanks very much for your patience. Generally, on the assumption that you don't have a major criminal history that would put other drivers in your state in danger, your specific crime usually means that you will get your license reinstated, but this charge will usually be reduced to an infraction if not dismissed completely by the judge in your case.
I think that if you explain to the judge that you had no other way to work, that you haven't had the money to pay, if you haven't had any other accidents, no other DUIs or DWIs, and if you show some remorse, then you are likely to have this thing reduced to a fraction.
In your opinion, is there any money you could pay to the court soon?
Thanks, William. The answer to your question is that you probably don't need a lawyer for this. In my understanding, the court should go relatively lenient on you, especially considering the mitigating (positive) circumstances that suggest you should not be jailed. It doesn't matter which county; it is likely your state refers Skagit issues to Island.
Did you have any other questions for me at all?
