Defendants Right to Counsel in Jeopardy Due to Washington Appeals Court

Defendants Right to Counsel in Jeopardy Due to Washington Appeals Court

This week Bellingham DUI attorney Jonathan Rands goes over a case that puts into question if a person that has been arrested has the right to speak with their counsel in privacy. In a recent case a person in Fife was arrested for a DUI then while in custody and before the breath test, called their counsel only to have the state trooper stay in the room during the phone call. This puts into question, do all suspects really get a right to legal counsel and privacy?

“Jonathan, thank you for bringing the best possible outcome today in my case. It was a humbling and very sobering experience and I am mindful everyday of my personal responsibility and actions and those around me. My career has taken off and I’m glad to have this chapter behind me and will move onward past probation!”
