Kirkland woman pleads not guilty to vehicular homicide charges

Our criminal justice system works under the premise of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The court of public opinion however, works a little differently. For that reason a Kirkland, Washington, woman's criminal defense attorney made a rather unusual request for his client when his client appeared before the judge in her arraignment hearing on charges of vehicular homicide, vehicular assault and driving while impaired. Because the defendant has young children, she requested to have her face obscured from the media during the hearing.

"Drive Hammered, Get Nailed" campaign

At certain times during the year, state and local law enforcement will step up their efforts to catch drunk drivers. The holiday season, including New Year's Eve, Fourth of July, and Labor Day can mean an increase in local and state efforts to pursue, arrest and charge drivers with drunk-driving. Drivers in the Seattle, Washington area should also be wary of the increased risk of drunk driving arrest from now through Labor Day.

Seattle Seahawks running back enters not guilty plea in DUI case

Here in Washington state, when drivers are pulled over for suspicion of driving under the influence, they often refuse to take a breath test. It is their right to do so, but the decision can then be used against them in court as circumstantial evidence of their guilt. Of course, drivers do not always make the decision to refuse a breath test because they think it will prove they are drunk; they often refuse the tests simply because they are notoriously inaccurate.
