Pierce County DUI Court
We Have Experienced with the Pierce County District Court
If arrested for DUI in Pierce County by a Washington State Patrol (WSP) trooper or Pierce County Sherriff’s Office (PCSO) deputy, the charge will be filed by the Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office, and a summons will be sent to a mailing address associated with the arrestee. Barring the existence of a prior DUI or blood having been drawn on the date of arrest, a first court date will likely not be set to occur at least two months from the date of incident. The Pierce County District courthouse is located at 930 Tacoma Ave S. Tacoma, 98042.
Though only three to four Pierce County District Court judges are assigned to hear DUI cases at a time, the District Court bench consists of Judge Jeanette Lineberry, Judge Karla Buttorff, Judge Kevin A. McCann, Judge Lloyd D. Oaks, Judge Lizanne Padula, Judge Claire Sussman, Judge Dwayne Chistopher, and Judge Karl Williams. Pierce County tends to rotate judges more frequently than other District Courts. Thus, an attorney who has familiarity with each of the magistrates is important.
The Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office assigns one deputy prosecuting attorney the responsibility of negotiating DUIs in each courtroom. The Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office vigorously pursues alcohol-related driving offenses.
