Snohomish County DUI Plea Bargaining Attorney

DUI Plea Bargain in Snohomish County, WA

DUIHeroes represents DUI cases at each step of the process. An individual arrested for a DUI faces a serious criminal charge and the penalties for a conviction in Washington are harsh. A DUI conviction can result in jailtime, probation, large fines and court fees, driver’s license suspension, ignition interlock device, and court-mandated alcohol treatment and counseling.

It is important to have skilled legal counsel building a strong defense through arraignment, motion-to-suppress hearings, and all subsequent court proceedings. A driver arrested for a DUI should contact a Snohomish County DUI lawyer for legal guidance before speaking to the police, which only endangers their chances of beating the charges.

At DUIHeroes, we represent clients with aggressive and proven defense methods. 90% of our cases have resulted in reduced or dismissed charges.

How Can DUIHeroes Help Me?

A strong DUI defense often challenges the evidence presented by the prosecution. Areas to attack are whether there was reasonable suspicion of a DUI, probable cause to arrest, incorrect arrest procedures, illegally or improperly obtained evidence, or mishandled breath, blood, or urine testing samples. These and other factors of a DUI case typically prompt the prosecution to request a plea bargain, which is an agreement between the defendant and the prosecution in which the defendant agrees to accept a lesser charge and the prosecutor agrees to pursue the DUI case no further.

Common reasons why prosecutors propose or accept a plea bargain include:

  • The evidence against the accused is light or unreliable.
  • Expert testimonies for the prosecution are unavailable.
  • A judge has a history of siding with DUI defendants.
  • The defendant’s attorney presented a reasonable plea bargain first.

At DUIHeroes, we recognize that a plea bargain initiated by the prosecution is almost inevitably a sign that the prosecutor’s case is weak overall. Once one is offered to our client, we can jump on the opportunity to look for those signs of weakness and determine if it is worth taking the plea bargain or if it would be better to press the case to court where a not-guilty verdict could be likely.

An advantage to accepting a plea bargain is the lessening of charges, which might involve a DUI charge reduction to a reckless or negligent driving charge. The defendant can avoid the harsh DUI penalties and the negative impact of a DUI conviction on their record. Another aspect of a plea bargain for a lesser charge is the speed at which a case can be resolved and that it keeps the jury and judge away from the DUI process. Our office is ready to help with all legal aspects of the DUI case, including plea bargains. Make an appointment today for a consultation with the firm regarding your legal options after a DUI arrest.
