Safwat's Redmond DUI Case Result (City of Redmond v. Safwat)
Outcome: DUI with a high breath test result reduced to Negligent Driving, no jail time, and set for a dismissal in 24 months.
Description: Safwat is a talented software engineer living in Redmond with a loving family. He was surprised by his breath test reading at the Redmond Police Department that was over the limit (almost twice .157/.152). The surprise he felt at the station replaced the anger and surprise he felt the moment the officer stopped him for driving the wrong way on a one way street. He also did not expect to be told that he had failed the field sobriety tests either. All around the experience was very confusing to Safwat and he was desperate for someone to straighten out a situation that had put him in jeopardy of being deported or excluded at the border upon reentry.
Safwat was happy and relieved to be able to walk out of the Redmond Courthouse with only a minor offense, which is set for dismissal if he is good for 24 months.
