What this means for you as a defendant, is that if you are accused of domestic violence in the City of Auburn, WA, and are either arrested or summonsed into court, your judge and court clerk will be King County District Court employees. The City of Auburn Prosecutor will be seeking to convict you, and you will need a defense attorney to represent your interests.
You can expect the prosecution to ask the judge to impose a no-contact order between you and your alleged victim. If it is granted, this means that even if you live or work together, you will be unable to continue to do so.
