    There are several different types of Aggravated DUI in Arizona. The version you appear to be referring to is committing a DUI while you have the interlock device requirement. This version is a class 4 felony.

    The next step would be to attempt to get the warrant quashed and to set aside any defaults. You should consult an experience attorney to discuss your options.

    It is possible to file an application to set aside judgment of guilt for a DUI conviction in Arizona. A.R.S. 13-907 specifically lists those offenses that are not "set aside" eligible. This statute lists Title 28, Chapter 3. Although a DUI offense is listed in Title 28, it is within Chapter 4. Therefore, a DUI is "set aside eligible." I have seen these applications granted in both misdemeanor and felony DUI's. A judge does have the ability to deny an application to set aside. You should...

    If a criminalist determines that the residue is a useable amount, then the state can charge use with posession. You should contact a qualified attorney to discuss any potential issues to pursue with your case.

    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.

    If your matter is a class 6 undesignated (open) offense and you have successfully completed probation, a motion must be filed with the court requesting that the court designate the matter a misdemeanor. Keep in mind that the State will get a chance to respond to the motion so all relevant, positive information should be included. If your matter was designated a felony, you will not be able to request that it be designated a misdemeanor. If your matter qualifies under the statute, you may be...

  8. My 17 year old got a reckless driving ticket

    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.

    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...

    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.
