Washington State Criminal Case Results

State of Washington v. Z.C.

Outcome: Dismissed with prejudice and win at DOL hearing.

Description: Client was facing a minimum of 30 days in jail and 60 days of electronic home monitoring and a 2 year license revocation on a second offense DUI.  The case was ultimately dismissed on my motion because the officer did not have lawful authority to stop my client and investigate him for DUI.  Through investigation I determined that the officer was only using his emergency lights when my client failed to yield and not his lights and siren as required by law.

Court: Pierce County District Court
