Marysville DUI and Snohomish County DUI Community Service
Community service for Marysville DUI court or Snohomish County DUI offenders was developed in the 1980s as an alternative to jail because of high jail costs and limited available space. Whether community service is permitted is ultimately up to the presiding judge in your Marysville DUI or Snohomish County DUI case.
Once you qualify for community service and it has been approved by the Marysville DUI or Snohomish County DUI judge, you will be provided a jail commitment date and the opportunity to complete the community service prior to the commitment. If you successfully complete the community service you will not need to appear for your jail commitment. On the other hand, if you do not complete the community service you will still need to appear.
Community service involves working at a not-for-profit organization. Depending on the Marysville DUI court or Snohomish County DUI court, you may be limited to specific organizations to serve your community service. Be sure to check with the court, or better yet, have your Marysville DUI attorney or Snohomish County DUI attorney check into this. If the court does not demand that you do community service at their designated organizations be sure to get organized early as it often takes time to plan. Typically, organizations that would be approved include the Salvation Army, Food Banks, Food Kitchens, City Parks and Recreation, Library’s, and so on. You will need to provide proof of your service to the court after you complete the hours. Proof should be on the not-for-profit’s letterhead and signed by an executive of the organization.
Warning, Courts for a Marysville DUI cases or Snohomish County DUI cases generally do not like to use community service as an alternative to jail.
