About Drunk Driving / DUI Cases in Washington
After being arrested for Drunk Driving / DUI in Washington, you may find yourself facing two separate legal issues. An administrative license suspension by the Department of Licensing (DOL); and criminal charges filed against you in a municipal or district court.
An administrative license suspension by the DOL is automatic after a DUI arrest if your BAC was over the legal limit or you refused testing. You have 20 days from your arrest to request a hearing with the DOL to dispute the suspension. Hearings are conducted by telephone and decided by a DOL Hearing Officer. Visit DOL Hearings for more information and call Evergreen Criminal Defense at (425) 355-5300 to discuss your options.
There are two ways the state may try to prove guilt in a DUI case. The first is by using breath or blood evidence to prove that a driver had a BAC of .08 or higher while driving or within two hours after driving. If BAC evidence is not available, the other method is to prove a person was driving while under the influence of or affected by alcohol, prescription or nonprescription drugs. This means the state does not need to prove that you had a BAC of .08 or higher; only that you were substantially affected by alcohol or drugs while driving.
