As a Seattle DUI Attorney, I spend every day scrutinizing the behavior and decisions made by officers. Most often, I deal with Washington State Patrol officers. That being said, I know that despite mistakes and missteps, the officers of the Washington State Patrol do their best every day to make good decisions trying to keep people safe.
Over the weekend, Washington State Patrol lost Trooper Sean O'Connell to a motorcycle accident.
I knew and worked with Trooper O'Connell, and much like the rest of the legal community, I am saddened by this loss. The law enforcement community lost a good man.
