DUI Deferred Prosecution Information
The Snohomish County District Court must receive all Defendants’ Petitions for Deferred Prosecutions at least seven days before their Trial Readiness Hearing date(s).
The probation departments of each court division will then carefully review each Petition for Deferred Prosecution to check if the Defendant has completed at least 36 hours of Phase I Intensive Outpatient Treatment at their treatment agency. They will also check to see if Defendants are attending at least two AA meetings per week since starting treatment.
Failure to meet those requirements will result in the probation department recommending to the judge that they not approve the Deferred Prosecution.
