  1. My friend has 2 class 6 felonies, and class 4, he has a plea deal for 6months to 1.5 yr, what do you think his chances are?

    If he doesn't have any prior felonies (and no other sentence enhancements alleged) and the plea doesn't stipulate to a time certain, then all things equal he can expect to receive the presumption sentence. I have posted a legal guide about mitigating circumstances which may help you understand whether or not he could receive a mitigated sentence.

  2. Can my appeal for "Matter Set Aside" be turned down by the judge or state prosecutor in a DUI case?

    ARS 13-907 deals with what crimes may or may not be set aside. Subsection D exempts title 28, chapter 3 (vehicle crimes) from the set aside statute. In other words, yes, the judge can and likely will deny your motion to set aside even if you've fullfilled all of the requirements of probation. If you appeal the denial, your appeal will be heard by a superior court judge and will likely be denied as well. Licensing issues are a major concern in dealing with criminal charges. However, many...

    You can remove from your record a DUI conviction in Arizona. Some people call this expungement, but it is more properly called setting aside a conviction. True expungement, in other words completely removing the entire record, is reserved for juveniles and most crimes committed while under 18. If you have successfully completed DUI probation, fulfilled all financial obligations to the court, and have not been in too much trouble since the DUI, you ought to apply to have the DUI conviction...

    I have a lot of questions from what you posted. I'm not sure I clearly understand the entire situtation, but it looks like a burglary of a residential structure. It looks like there are a number of mitigating factors and potential defenses that might arise out of a situation like the one you described. I would encourage you to sit down with a lawyer and go through the facts so that you know clearly where you stand.

    A DUI accident can easily be turned into a felony aggravated assault with a vehicle. If your privilege to drive was suspended or restricted in any way you could also be facing a felony DUI. Obviously, you need to consult with a lawyer asap. I haven't seen a case that didn't have some light at the end of the tunnel. I'm confident you can get through it - you're in a tough spot, but there is help available.

    When charged with a felony, jail is always an immediate concern. A class 5 felony carries a presumptive sentence of 1.5 years prison; however, probation is available. As a condition of probation the court court order up to 1 year in the county jail. A class 5 felony for theft is a serious charge and the punishment will depend on the specific circumstances surrounding the theft. There is a lot more at play than the type of charge and the amount alleged to have been stolen.

    If a person enters a guilty plea to a class 6 undesignated offense, then there is an opporunity to have the court designate the offense a misdemeanor. This misdemeanor designation most often occurs after successful completion of probation. However, there are times when the court will designate the case a misdemeanor at the time of sentencing. After successful completion of probation on a first time felony offense, the person's rights should be restored automatically. These rights do not...

    It really depends on the wording of the question on the application and on the reporting rules for the agency/company to which you are applying. You now have a misdemeanor criminal history; however, the question might ask, "have you ever been convicted of a felony?" Or the instructions might indicate that you are disclose any crime whether or not it was reduced, set aside or expunged.

    Your juvenile record doesn't automatically disappear when you turn 18. You will need to file a motion for destruction of juvenile record. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
