    Just because you told the police officer that you committed the crime does not mean that you have to plead guilty at the arraignment. You should be given the opportunity to speak with the prosecutor about possibly getting into a diversion program. If you are unable to speak with the prosecutor at the arraignment, you should enter a not guilty plea and ask the judge for the opportunity to speak with the prosecutor. Ultimately, it is up to the prosecutor if they want to extend the option of...

    Unsupervised probation with compliance monitoring is language that the Maricopa County Prosecutor’s Office uses for their plea agreements. Basically, this is just unsupervised probation where you are required to provide proof of compliance with any court ordered classes, fees, fines, etc., to the probation department.

    Most police agencies in Arizona have gone to blood as opposed to breath (although there is still a select few that use breath). But one thing is common, whether the officer is asking for a sample of your blood, breath or urine, if you refuse you will be subject to a license suspension for one year and the officer is most likely going to obtain a warrant to get your blood anyway. Your best bet, if you ever find yourself in the position of having to decide whether or not to give a sample of...

    Possession of narcotic drugs is a class 4 felony. Typically, if you have no prior criminal history, you will be given the opportunity for diversion which will require you to submit to random drug testing and counseling in exchange for a dismissal of the charges. If you have already been charged and have a pending court date you will want to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to consider your options. Good luck.

  6. If you have been charged with 3 extreme DUI in a month and a half in 3 different courts does 1 court know about the others

    Depending on the status of each of the cases it is possible that the other jurisdictions know about the other arrests; however it is also possible that they do not. More of the concern for this woman is the fact that her third DUI in time could be considered a felony DUI and faces a mandatory minimum sentence of four months in the Department of Corrections. If she hasn't already, she should attempt to retain counsel to assist her with these matters.

    You really should be asking this question to a family law/divorce attorney. I would suggest posting the question in the practice of Domestic Relations/Divorce.

  8. My son is 18 yrs old and ran a red light, was ticked for DUI/Marijuana, possession of Marijuana, first offense. What now?

    Your son has multiple issues that could come out of this stop. The first is possession of marijuana and the second is the DUI/Drugs case. At this point the state is likely having the marijuana tested to confirm that it is in fact marijuana and is going to have his blood analyzed to find out if there is any marijuana, or the metabolite of marijuana, in his system. Even though there is not currently a court date set, getting counsel hired now can ease issues on this matter in the future.

  9. Is it legal for me to "bait" someone to steal something?

    Answered about 2 years ago.

    If you place your property out with the intent that someone steal it, the likelihood that you would be sucessful in a civil claim for damages is very unlikely. Regarding "baiting" someone into stealing your laptop, it is not illegal so long as you are not a law enforcement officer, however I do not understand why you would do something like this.

    Yes, the DUI convictions from other State's do follow him here to Arizona. Because this would be considered a third time DUI in seven years, he is actually facing a felony DUI here in Arizona. Given this, he is facing mandatory prison time if convicted of the DUI as charged (assuming no prior felony offenses). In addition to the court aspect of this case, he also needs to be concerned with how this will affect his driver’s license.
