    This is a tough question to answer without knowing all the facts - which I would not recommend discussing on an Internet forum. It's tough to hire a private attorney if your trial is set in a couple of weeks. Meeting with a private attorney and discussing your case is a good option for you.

    I agree with my colleague's assessment of your situation. It's pretty rare to take the issues in a case and get the prosecutor to outright dismiss the case without a fight. However, the issues that you've raised could be grounds to file motions that could ultimately result in the dismissal of your case. You should speak with a criminal defense attorney about your options and the case in more detail.

    Excessive speed is a class 3 misdemeanor. It carries a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail and a $500 fine plus surcharge. More important than the potential punishment is the fact that it will be on your record forever if you are convicted. Because of the potential consequences that you face, I would recommend hiring an attorney. At age 21 you you don't want to be saddled with a criminal record for your future.

    Any time you're charged with a crime it is better to have an attorney than not. In your case, it's even more important to have one because you have a warrant. An attorney can help you work with the court so that you don't get arrested and can resolve the case. An attorney can help you file the appropriate motions to get the warrant quashed.

    Answers in criminal cases are very rarely yes or no as small simple facts can change the outcome of a case. Search warrants can be very complicated. To answer your question an attorney would need more information, which you shouldn't be sharing on a public Internet forum. There are quite a few legal principles that govern the State's use of search warrants. You need to speak with an attorney to discuss the case under privilege and look at your various options.

    One of the misconceptions about criminal cases is that being read Miranda rights automatically will get your case dismissed. Miranda is only required if there is a custodial interrogation. Violataion of Miranda will result in any statements made being inadmissible. Sometimes that results in the entire case being dismissed, but it doesn't mean that it automatically will be dismissed. It's hard to give you an assessment of fighting the case without sitting down and getting your full side of...

  7. Criminal speeding ticket 67 in 40. How do I plead and is it possible to get it reduced to civil speeding ticket and how?

    There are a number of factors that will be considered such as your prior criminal history and driving record when discussing the option of reducing the charge to a civil speeding ticket. Additionally, the way the officer determined your speed will also be considered and play into how solid the State's case is against you. In most every circumstance I advise individuals to plead not guilty at an arraignment. This gives you the opportunity to negotiate with the prosecutor and see if a better...

    Each individual case has it's own facts and circumstances. One of the elements required for a DUI is for the State to prove that you were driving or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. If the State cannot prove that element or if it's something that would be a close call, your chances of getting it reduced are greatly enhanced. DUIs carry severe penalties in Arizona including mandatory jail time. You're dealing with a very technical defense in this case as well. You need to...

    If you're charged in a city court or justice court, you cannot be charged with a felony for aggravated DUI. The court lacks the jurisdiction for felony matters. The only way you could be charged with an aggravated DUI is if the case is dismissed and refiled in superior court. Hopefully, for your sake, that doesn't happen.

    Defense attorneys for DUIs can cost anywhere from $2500-10K. It just depends on the attorney. Based on the information you provided, you may have some very valid defenses to a DUI. I would recommend speaking with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case and let you know your options. I would not recommend posting any other pertinent information to charges in an online forum like Avvo because those communications will not be covered by attorney client privilege.
