My boyfriend and I recently split up and he has videos and photos that were supposed to remain private and is now harassing me and threatening to post them online. Is there anything that I can do to take legal action?
Sure, you can request the dash video. Generally speaking, WSP and the cities have dash cameras, the sheriff's office does not. There are some exceptions, but just be aware not every police car has a dash cam. The best way to obtain the video is normally through a public records request, which...View More
It's fairly common that officers don't issue the citation at the scene, and then it gets mailed later. That is often because of a technology problem, but can be for other reasons as well. You should probably check with the court for your location to see if anything has been filed. Also...View More
I was convicted of vehicular assault 11 years ago, since it never leaves my record will it always show on a background check? I am looking into switching jobs but I am unsure of what restrictions this charge still has.
I need to find an attorney that can help me in finishing my insurance injury claim. I have literally done 3/4 of the work (I believe) and I have obtained all of the documents needed to settle this case. These include my medical documents from my PCP and therapist notes and summaries for every... View More
I was driving on the freeway and my life 360 app tracks my movement and speed and it says I was doing 72 and he said he was doing 70 and if I was only doing 10 over he wouldn’t have pulled me over but in my app it says I was doing only 10 over is that enough to fight it in court? I then asked how... View More
Keep an eye on the time to respond, it is probably two weeks, not three. There is no harm in requesting a contested hearing and investigating your options, but you will not get a public defender for a speeding ticket. You'll either fight it on your own or hire a lawyer, the court will not...View More
Generally no, but it definitely depends on the judge and the circumstances. If something has changed since the sentence was imposed, and not too much time has passed, a reasonable judge would at least listen and consider the request.
Talk to your lawyer to confirm, but with those facts it sounds like they can be included in a single deferred prosecution. "Separate offenses committed more than seven days apart may not be consolidated in a single program." RCW 10.05.010.
Someone I know was arrested and the next day was suppose to go to court. They were never seen and let go with no paper work. Disposition on the website said NCF FINAL. Does that mean they are not being charged. Also if it says final does that mean they are not going summon them back for a trial? I... View More
It definitely does not mean that a charge could not be filed in the future. If the prosecutor gets more information or a follow up report, they can change their mind and file until the statute of limitations has run out. That is at least one year, but more for most crimes.
If charged with DUI can you not obtain a IID device and not drive in the meantime and still get your license back. Or is IID device required to obtain license back again? Hope my question makes sense. Thank you!
It probably depends on how the case was charged and plead. Vehicular Assault is a class B felony, so ten years would be the waiting period to vacate. But there are three different ways to commit the crime of Vehicular Assault, my opinion is that one of them is eligible to vacate but the other two...View More
I'm afraid not. The change in WA drug law was a very specific ruling based on the wording of the WA possession statute, which was unique in the country. This change would not affect convictions from any other state or the federal system.
If you want to read more about how the change...View More
If that came up in a WA background check, I would start with WA State Patrol, as they maintain the database. This link has their contact information as well as a form to fill out to request to modify or correct a record:
Arbitration determined the other party was 100% at fault. dash cam footage shows the driver turned sideways on the freeway right in front of us. My husband was driving, I was in the front passenger seat and our 13 month old daughter was in the back in her carseat. We all went to the ER, but not via... View More
I hate to say this, but my experience is that you will never get a fair settlement without an attorney. Unless the insurance company legitimately believes that you are prepared and able to put your case in front of a jury, they will never feel the need to pay what your claim is worth. They will...View More
Easy answer is to call the lawyer who represented you. If that isn't possible, the public defender's office in the county where the conviction occurred can help you. In many counties, you can just call the prosecutor's office. Most of them have an assigned person or team who is...View More
Normally where strangulation is alleged, the charge in court winds up being Second Degree Assault. The sentence range for that is 3 - 9 months in jail. I would certainly recommend you talk to a lawyer who practices in your area as soon as you can.
46.25.060 because if suspension or revocation of your driving privilege in another state.. which makes no sense he lives in Washington and. Has not been anywhere but Washington and he didn't give anyone wrong info so we are so confused makes no sence
There are a lot of reasons a notice like that could go out, including just a mistake by DOL. Fixing those things take time, so you should definitely consult with a lawyer as quickly as you can. They'll want to see a copy of the letter he got so they can start working with DOL to remedy the...View More
