You thought you were all done with your DUI case! Then you receive a Court date in the mail. What does it mean?
Generally, it means you did not complete something (community service hours, alcohol/drug treatment, DUI Victims Panel, work crew, jail) or did something "new" that you were not supposed to do. (i.e. new conviction/arrest, driving without license & insurance)
You may have "violated" the conditions of your DUI or Reckless/Negligent Driving probation. The sentencing Court would have set conditions of your probation such as the following at Sentencing: Complete an alcohol/drug evaluation and follow recommendation, pay all Court fines and costs, report to probation, not drive a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance, no driving with breath or blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater, no refusal of alcohol test of breath or blood upon reasonable request of a law enforcement, no new criminal violations of law, no alcohol or drug related infractions, ignition interlock device requirements per Washington DOL.
The most common DUI probation violations: new criminal law violations, failure to do treatment, failure to do victims panel, failure to report to probation, driving without a valid license & insurance and positive UA's, among many others. Check the Court's paperwork (Judgment & Sentence) you received at your final Sentencing Court Hearing to see whether you complied with/completed everything.
