Do I need an attorney at DUI arraignment?

Yes. In Washington State with the conditions of release (ignition interlock device, EHM {home arrest}, Scram {24 hour alcohol detection bracelet}) and high bail being imposed by Judges these days in DUI cases (especially with priors) it is very important to have an attorney at arraignment. If you cannot obtain counsel by arraignment – ask to continue arraignment to obtain private counsel or interview fo r a public defender.
