March 2010 Snohomish County Municipal Court Case
Mark W. Garka's Client was confronted by three police officers for allegedly drinking and driving. The Client was upset with the process. After Mark's Client refused to perform the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST); he was arrested. He was then not properly advised of the Implied Consent Warnings (ICW). Mark questioned the Police Officers in the Department of Licensing hearing. It was determined that the Officers never advised Mark's Client of the implied consent warnings. The Hearing Officer dismissed the case. The City Prosecutor also dismissed the DUI charge based upon the information gleamed in the Department of Licensing Hearing. Mark's client did not lose his privilege to drive.
