March 2016 Snohomish County District Court Case
Mark W. Garka's Client was involved in a serious collision that resulted not only with a concussion for the Driver, but also a charge of DUI and Reckless Driving. After many hours post accident, blood was drawn from Mark W. Garka's Client. It took 175 days from the date of violation to receive the blood draw results. They were finally received after Mark W. Garka pressured the State Prosecutor. After a long delay for his Client to get his blood draw results, the result was finally found to be less than 0.05 which is below the legal limit of 0.08. The State grudgingly offered to reduce the charge to Reckless Driving because of the blood draw results. Mark W. Garka and his Client respectfully declined. After further negotiation, Mark W. Garka's Client was offered an amended charge of Negligent Driving in the First Degree and the Client accepted that offer. The Client did not serve jail time and he did not lose his license.
