Can Arizona HB 2374 Deffered Prosecution be applied to Aggravated DUI w criminal damage?

Tucson, AZ |

Just passed March 20th, to take effect in July 2012.

Date of offense 12/10. was just charged with 2 counts of aggravated dui (one without interlock and one illegal drug without interlock) and felony criminal damage. Is this typical to do the two charges and drop one if they get you for the other?

I have been sober for nearly 15 months now and am a recovery house manager, 4.0 student. I have done everything possible, I hope this gives me a chance!

  2. Mr. Black is correct. Deferred prosecution is not an option for those charges. You need to hire a local attorney or seek help from the public defender.
