Tie in new utility sink into washer drain plumbing

Greetings, I recently installed a washer outlet box and need to understand the best way to tie in a new utility sink. The image shows the current plumbing — and the utility sink will be to the right of this current plumbing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

NOTE: I don't know why my image is upside down. I've tried everything to correct this and can't seem to correct.

I'm guessing my image wasn't available before? Are you able to see it now and able to help me understand how to tie the sink in? I'm not 100% opposed to running the sink drain pipe outside the wall over to the tie-in point if needed - to avoid trying to get around all the current water lines, power boxes and drain pipes. I'm mostly trying to understand how best to have proper venting on the sink with what I currently have. THANKS!

OK, it would basically be like this drawing Lawrosa made a few years ago, except your washer will be on the opposite side left of the utility sink.

If you wanted to build a short 4ft high 2x6 kneewall in front of the washer box you could run your plumbing in that if you didn't want it exposed. Best scenario, after your trap the utility sink drain would go straight down the wall and tie in below the floor.

And your washer box should probably be higher.

Residential Code requirement for clothes washer standpipe: The Uniform Plumbing Code (804.1) requires clothes washer standpipes to extend at least 18 inches above the trap, but not more than 30 inches.
