September 2012 Snohomish County District Court Case
Mark W. Garka's Client was originally charged with both the crimes of DUI High Breath Test and Hit-And-Run Unattended. The original offer was to plead guilty to a DUI and serve 50 days in jail. If the client had been convicted he would have lost his Driver's License for a period of two years. The Deputy was subpoenaed for the Department of Licensing (DOL) hearing and failed to appear. With the use of Mark's Private Investigator it was determined that the Deputy made errors in the case. It was confirmed through the investigation that no one saw Mark's Client driving. The State offered a charge of Reckless Driving but this would have required a 30 day loss of license. Mark negotiated a Reckless Endangerment for his Client and he did not lose his driver's license or face a DUI charge.
