    I assume that you are charged with criminal speeding. Your attorney can handle waiving your appearance --- assuming that the prosecutor doesn't object. And that would be unusual under the circumstances. If you don't hire an attorney, then you better show up ... or the judge will issue a bench warrant for your arrest. Bottom line: hire an attorney so you don't have to go back and forth and you'll get the best chance at a good outcome.

  2. Will he be released?

    Dealing with the Department of Corrections can be SO confusing. So, sorry BUT ... expect still more confusion. He could be released for even for a few days. OR, all of the paperwork may be completed and processed for release on Tuesday, and when it's time for him to be "released" on Tuesday they will keep him on a detainer. You can go on line at ADOC and check the inmate locator and it MAY show whether there is a detainer. GOOD LUCK!!

  4. After successfully completing a diversion, does the charge and plea agreement get dismissed?

    If you successfully completed diversion prior to 07/26/12 and complied with any other terms of diversion, your case should have been dismissed. But errors do occur and it's important to follow-up to make sure that dismissals are entered. I can't tell from your info why you are being violated. It's important to have an attorney review all of the facts about your diversion and new violation. It would be a pity to lose the benefits of the diversion after successfully completing it. Good luck!

    Unfortunately, if you are uninsured and cannot qualify for AHCCCS, the emergency room is your best bet for getting care. I would try Maricopa Integrated Health System (MIHS) which is commonly referred to as the "County Hospital" and is at 24th and Roosevelt. MIHS has an excellent emergency department and clinic system. Also, there are federal funds available to help hospitals offset the costs of treating "illegals." Finally, no hospital may condition treatment on your husband being legal --...

  6. We just found out a patient's family has been videotaping all interactions.

    Whether taping staff-patient interactions is "legal" requires more information. The first question that I have is whether the patient is a minor or adult and, if an adult, is the patient competent. If the patient is an adult, then the family saying the "patient is OK" is not legally sufficient in my view. My next question is what kind of "interactions" are involved and being recorded? If there are physical examinations of a child or an adult or questions regarding sensitive information, then...

    It's unclear to from your question whether you are the patient or provider. So, I'll try to write for both "sides." I agree generally with the previous attorney's answer. However, I would add a few "exceptions." First, managed care plans and other insurance plans may require providers to accept all members/insureds. The provider or patient may want to clarify with any involved plan if the provider may require an arbitration agreement? Second, the Arizona Supreme Court held in Broemmer that...

    I am a bit confused. It sounds like the officer released you at the scene without giving you a ticket for anything. If that is correct, you probably are in the clear. But you said that you were "arrested" and "released" which sound like you went to jail, in which case I would expect that you were charged and have a pending court date.

    First, sorry for the bad luck getting caught with the pipe because your friend was smoking while driving. BTW -- having a marijuana card is not a defense to smoking while driving -- DUI in AZ is impairment to the slightest degree and it's likely your friend was impaired. (Not being judgmental - just giving you the facts). Second, it is likely though not certain that you can work out an acceptable arrangement with the prosecutor but twice in a month is going to catch their eye. A final...

  10. As a bartender can you serve alcohol if you have a DUI on your record???

    Can't tell from your question how old the DUI is and whether you are on probation or parole. Generally, employers are careful about screening bartenders, so the employer doesn't risk loss of their liquor license. They may choose not to hire you based on a DUI conviction. Also, in Arizona a DUI or aggravated DUI are among the convictions that you can not get "set aside" -- that is, taken "off" your record.
