NOT GUILTY VERDICTS

DUI

We believe that a DUI charge should not define who you are or control your future. This may be the first time that you have had to hire a criminal defense attorney, and we understand that you may be scared and troubled by the prospect of going to jail or having a DUI on your record.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

If you have been arrested or charged with a crime of Domestic Violence in Pierce County or King County the consequences can be very serious. Even misdemeanor DV charges can result in jail of up to 364 days and fines of up to $5000.

DRUG CRIMES

Accusations of Washington State drug crimes are taken very seriously by law enforcement, prosecutors, and the courts. A conviction for a Washington State drug crime will have serious long-term consequences including, but not limited to potential jail time and significant fines.

PROPERTY CRIMES

Property crimes are considered acts of dishonesty, which brings with it unique and expansive consequences, including denial professional licenses, employment opportunities and immigration/deportation issues. Juveniles and students charged with property crimes may face academic consequences that are far reaching.

MIP LAWYER OLYMPIA, LACEY, YELM, THURSTON COUNTY

Most times an Olympia juvenile’s first introduction into the criminal system is with the charge of minor in possession or consumption of alcohol. The idea of having a criminal record is scary at any age but particularly as an adolescent. An Olympia, Lacey, Yelm MIP conviction can have long-term negative consequences that can affect college admission, employment opportunity and the ability to drive.

A juvenile (a person under 21 years of age) can be charged with MIP whether or not they are actually in possession of alcohol. If an Olympia officer detects as much as the presence of alcohol in their body or believes the minor to be exhibiting the signs of being under the influence then the result may be a Thurston County MIP charge.

A Minor in Possession charge in the Olympia area is a Gross Misdemeanor and can carry a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $5,000 fine. And, if you are 18 or under and are arrested for MIP, marijuana or other drug possession in the Olympia, Thurston County area, you may automatically have your driver’s license suspended – even if you were not driving..

Horwath Law uses the vast experience we have with the Olympia, Thurston County, WA criminal justice system and MIP defense to avoid long-term consequences.

If you or minor you know is faced with criminal charges for teenage drinking, juvenile driving or drug crimes, call Angela Horwath at 253-620-0033.
