In part, this is because people who get involved in assault cases may need treatment or other remedies. But a major contributing factor is the Cycle of Domestic Violence, and how many Washington Legislators and Courts choose to deal with such cases.
A Domestic Violence call to a residence requires (where both parties are there when the police arrive) the "primary aggressor" to be arrested and taken to jail. While this can be a very important and helpful thing to true Domestic Violence victims, there are many cases where the wrong person is arrested. I have had many female clients who were arrested on Assault Domestic Violence charges, when in fact they were the true victims. No contact orders may then be put into place that bar these women from their homes. Many prosecutors take weeks or longer to recognize their error - if ever.

Possession of Marijuana Defense Lawyer,
ATTORNEY BRIAN M. SULLIVAN
An Arrest is Not a Conviction
calls answered 24/7 by a live person
In Washington, possession of just a small amount of marijuana is a crime — even if it's only for personal use, or even if you have a prescription (which is only an affirmative defense).
Because of the potential for severe consequences, counting on a prosecutor to see you for "the decent person" you are, to understand that it's just a little "pot," that you're sorry and that they should go easy on you are not risks you want to take.
I know. I used to be a prosecutor.
If you or someone close to you has been arrested on a marijuana charge, or other drug offense, contact us for a free consultation. Get advice from an experienced defense lawyer who can help.

While the case at hand, State v. a Rivera-Santos, had a driver eluding / being chased by police while driving into Oregon, it certainly leaves the door open for how much pursuit, if any, would be required for both states to prosecute if there was evidence of driving in both states (e.g., a photo of the person's vehicle crossing the bridge.
