March 2019 Snohomish County District Court Case
Mark W. Garka's Client was pulled over for allegedly having a “load muffler violation” because the car was traveling too loudly and he was arrested for a DUI. During the Department of Licensing hearing, Mark convinced that Department of Licensing Officer that this was a simple allegation from the arresting Officer and the Officer had nothing to back it up. The Department of Licensing Hearing Officer ruled in Mark's Client's favor and his Client did not lose his Driver's license. Mark used that same argument to convince the State of Washington Prosecuting Attorney that the Officer's reason for pulling his Client over was weak. The State Prosecuting Attorney reduced the DUI charge to a Reckless Driving charge and the Client did not serve any jail time.
