Lynnwood DUI Lawyer
Negligent Driving of a Motor Vehicle in the First Degree
As a Lynnwood criminal defense attorney, one of the things I see are cases
involving Negligent Driving - First Degree. According to Washington law
Negligent Driving - First Degree is:
"A person is guilty of negligent driving in the first degree if he
or she operates a motor vehicle in a manner that is both negligent and
endangers or is likely to endanger any person or property, and exhibits
the effects of having consumed liquor or an illegal drug." RCW 46.61.5249
The good news regarding this type of charge is that it is a lesser charge
than that of DUI and it does not include a mandatory suspension of your
license as in the case of a DUI conviction. However, if you are arrested
for Negligent Driving - First Degree, also known as Neg 1, it is important
that you contact a Lynnwood DUI attorney to assess your case immediately.
Negligent Driving - First Degree is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment
up to 90 days and a fine of up to $1,000 or both.
