What is Day Reporting in Seattle Municipal?

Day reporting is basically an alternative to Jail for people who do not have the money to post bail, or who have had a poor history of compliance with the Court’s Conditions. (i.e. no consumption alcohol, not doing treatment, not reporting to probation etc.) This allows defendants to report daily to Seattle Municipal’s D ay Reporting Program (2nd floor of Justice Center) until their court case or sentence is complete. While on day reporting, they can also go about their daily routine of work, treatment or whatnot. In all DUI cases, you will be given a breath test when you report. Day reporting is Monday-Friday. Typically, these are repeat offender DUI cases.
