August 2010 King County District Court Case
Mark W. Garka's Client was involved in a four car accident on I-5. The Deputy Prosecuting Attorney refused to negotiate. Mark filed a Motion to Dismiss. Mark, his Client, and his Private Investigator appeared on four separate Motion Court dates to argue their case. Each time the Troopers did not appear. At the fourth motion appearance, the District Court Judge decided to dismiss the case based upon Mark's perseverance in an attempt to argue his Client's case and the Deputy Prosecutor's failure to provide witnesses. Finding that there was not reasonable basis to arrest Mark's Client, the case was DISMISSED. This was Mark's Client's second DUI and the Client was facing 45 days in jail in addition to 90 days Electric Home Monitoring (EHM). Mark also prevailed in the Department of Licensing hearing; therefore Mark's Client did not lose her privilege to drive.
