March 2015 Snohomish County District Court
Mark W. Garka's Client was arrested for driving under the influence after a witness had alleged that they saw her drive her car and hit another vehicle. Mark W. Garka's client had a functioning Ignition Interlock Device (IID) installed in her car and after much research, Mark W. Garka proved to the State that his Client could not have driven her vehicle while impaired because the IID was functioning properly. However, the State Prosecutor was not willing to give up so easily on this case. Mark W. Garka sought to depose the State Witness but the Witness never showed up. After many conversations, the State finally gave up and dismissed the case. Mark W. Garka's Client did not serve any Jail time and she did not lose her license.
