September 2021 Snohomish County Municipal Court Case
Mark W. Garka's Client was arrested for a potential DUI. He was turned in by a concerned citizen on a 911 call. The DUI investigation was lacking evidence prior to the arrest. One Officer actually mentioned that it was illegal to have anything to drink and drive. The City Prosecutor offered a reduction to a Reckless Driving but Mark was able to convince the City Prosecutor that a Negligent Driving in the First Degree would be more appropriate in light of the Client's lack of history and the circumstances surrounding the case. The City Officer did not submit paperwork for the Department Licensing hearing, therefore there was not a hearing and Mark's Client did not lose his Driver's License.
