August 2012 Lower Kittitas County District Court Case
Mark W. Garka's Client was arrested while driving and talking on his cell phone. The Client was not paying attention and it took awhile to pull over when the Officer activated his emergency lights. The Client was on pain medications for a back issue and he submitted to field sobriety tests despite having a back issue. Mark's Client was arrested for Driving while Under the Influence of Drugs yet was not advised immediately of his Miranda warnings. This was a DUI drug case; therefore Mark's Client did not have a Department of License Hearing. Through investigation and the help of experts, Mark was able to convince the State Prosecutor that this would be a difficult case for them to prove. Mark was able to get a reduction on his case and the Client did not lose his Driver's License nor did he go to jail.
