At Callahan Law, P.S., Inc. we have found that initially, persons charged with DUI are traumatized. Typically, they have been law-abiding all their lives. They have also always seen themselves as being against drunk driving. Often, they are overwhelmed by feelings of anxiety, depression, and are disgusted with either themselves or the humiliating process they have just experienced.
Arrangement at Court
Conditions Of Release
If this is your first offense and there is no accident or high breath/blood test involved, you will likely be released on your own recognizance (PR’d). You will have to maintain certain conditions the judge imposes to continue on this status, such as law-abiding behavior, and non-consumption of alcohol, marijuana, or non-prescribed drugs.
However, if you do have a prior alcohol-related offense, or an extremely high breath or blood test result, or if an accident happened with your DUI, the prosecutor may ask the court to impose more stringent restrictions of release, possibly including the posting of bail. This may require that you have a friend or family member engage a bail-bonds person to pay a premium and post a bond for your release from jail.
If you have prior offenses, the judge could impose severe restrictions on you, such as:

plan of action
Washington State has some of the toughest DUI laws in our nation. These laws carry increasingly severe penalties for those who drink and drive. Washington lowered the BAC limit from .10 to 0.08 in January of 1999. Drivers with a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) at .08 or above can now be convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol. In addition, because public sentiment is so very negative toward drunk drivers, prosecutors will often pursue a DUI conviction even when the driver’s test result is well under .08! This is possible because they can obtain a conviction if they can show the person drove while “affected by” alcohol, and/or marijuana or any drug, including prescription or over-the-counter medications.
