April 2010 Snohomish County District Court Case
In a Department of Licensing (DOL) hearing, Mark W. Garka argued that the Officer made an illegal stop when he pulled over his Client. The Department of Licensing Hearing Officer agreed and dismissed the administrative licensing case. Mark provided the Deputy Prosecuting Attorney with the information garnered at the DOL hearing and negotiated with the State to issue a traffic infraction and dismiss the DUI. Despite having a high blood alcohol level, Mark's Client was charged with a traffic infraction and he did not lose his privilege to drive.
