In almost every DUI case where a person has no prior history, they are released on their own recognizance with some limited stipulations like, don't break the law while your case is pending, specifically, don't break the law with respect to the validity of your driver's license. For Whatcom County, they will also order you to abstain from alcohol, have no possession of it, or not go anywhere where the primary business is the sale of alcohol like liquor stores or bars and taverns.
However, if you've been arrested before, the rules are different. Listen in as Dillon Honcoop and DUI attorney Jonathan Rands discuss the different scenarios, depending on which county you're in and whether there are priors on not, and what it means for your pocketbook.
“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!”Julie
