It used to be that you could always count on the judge at least setting some bail amount, if not outright releasing you from custody. However, that all changed recently, when local Snohomish County District Court Judge Jeffrey Goodwin held a defendant who got popped for another Washington State DUI while his was pending in Goodwin’s court, without bail being set.
According to the Everett Herald, a Snohomish County Superior Court Judge upheld the decision.
Now, more than ever, it is imperative that you have competent LOCAL counsel for your case – someone who knows the courts and the players. Someone who is keeping abreast of all local developments.
