    I would also agree with Mr. Black concerning the ramifications of these charges upon your privilege to drive. With regard to jail time, the accident and the additional charges, you should consult an attorney to explore legal issues and potential penalties.

    Paul’s Answer

    If your matter is a misdemeanor DUI, then the statute of limitations is 1year. It sounds like your case is a DUI-Drugs case. Often times, there is a significant delay in filing or refiling charges as is takes a considerable amount of time to get the blood or urine tested. You may want to contact an attorney to discuss your matter further.

  • My 17 year old got a reckless driving ticket

    His passenger was dragging a rope with an orange life preserver attached to it and it almost hit someone. He is pressing charges. Any advice on what to do.

    Paul’s Answer

    Reckless driving is a class 2 misdemeanor offense in Arizona. The maximum jail time is 4 months and the maximum fine is $750. There are no mandatory minimum penalties. A person convicted of reckless driving will also receive 8 points on their driving record which could potentially cause further MVD ramifications, depending on the person's driving record. It would be helpful to consult an attorney concerning this allegation.

    Paul’s Answer

    Assuming there was no conviction for your husband's first DUI, he will be facing first offense penalties for this DUI. These can very widely depending on the type of DUI charges filed. Without more detailed information, it is impossible to tell you what to expect next. Based on what you've described, he may have some issues in his case to work with. He should consult an experienced DUI Attorney.

  • I heard that for people going to prison for the first time, get 3 months off their original sentence? is that accurate?

    My friend just got sentenced to a year in prison, since it is his first time, is there a chance that he will get 3 months off his 10 month sentence? what are the factors to be considered for this?

    Paul’s Answer

    A.R.S. 31-233 provides that the department of corrections has the ability to authorize a "Temporary Release" for the purpose of allowing an inmate to prepare to get back into the community. The 3 month period you are referring to is this temporary release. DOC provides an inmate with a score based on a number of factors, one of which is the type of offense the inmate was charged with. DOC determines whether the inmate qualifies for this early release. Your friend will likely learn whether he qualifies for this release at DOC intake.
