June 2012 Snohomish County District Court Case
Mark W. Garka's Client was arrested for a second DUI within seven years. During investigation, it was determined that Mark's Client provided an invalid sample of his breath. Mark won the Department of Licensing (DOL) hearing by highlighting the invalid sample issue in the hearing. Therefore, Mark's Client did not lose his driver's license with the Department of Licensing for what have been two years because of a prior DUI conviction. The State Prosecutor, on the morning of the motion hearing, agreed with the issues in the case, and offered a reduction to 10 days of electronic home monitoring and no jail time was served.
