Physical Control

Facing physical control charge in Washington State?

Washington physical control attorneys are in your corner.

To be convicted of a DUI, a person has to be driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the legal limit.

How is physical control different from a DUI?

You do not have to actually drive a car to be convicted of a physical control charge. If you are in physical control of a vehicle with a BAC above 0.8%, or within two hours of being arrested, you can be charged with physical control.

You may also be charged if you are in control of a vehicle while exhibiting signs of intoxication or being under the influence of drugs. For example, individuals have been charged for being intoxicated while sitting in the driver’s seat, passenger’s seat, or even the back seat of a parked car. After being arrested, you only have 20 days to request a hearing, so it is vital that you contact Washington criminal lawyerJason S. Newcombe as soon as possible.

Our firm has over 30 years of combined legal experience, and criminal defense is one of our primary practice areas. We represent clients in Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, Everett, Olympia, Mount Vernon and Bellingham with their criminal charges. We understand that this can be an overwhelming time in your life and are here to answer all your legal questions.

Our Washington DUI lawyers will fight to get your case dropped.

After being charged with physical control, your lawyer may be able to demonstrate that your vehicle was parked safely off the roadway before being noticed by an officer. This may significantly affect your case and could lead to dropped charges.

Also, if your vehicle could not have been made readily operable at the time of your arrest, this could also prove significant for your defense. If you feel that either of these circumstances may apply to your case, speak to our firm today to begin forming your defense.
