It sounds like the cop did not file the paperwork in time. The officer now has one year from the date of violation to submit the charge to the prosecutor and for the case to be filed. The charge now has to be filed by a "long form" complaint. That means the prosecutor will file the charges with the court. You will receive a summons in the mail to appear in person. Hire an attorney. Best of luck, AaronSee question

It depends on a few things. 1) do you have any prior felonies? 2) Is this charged as a dangerous offense?
If you have no priors the prison sentence is .5 - 2.5 years. However, you would be probation elligable and you could get up to one year county jail as a term or probation.
If you have one prior felony, the term is 1-3.75 years. If you have 2 priors you are looking at 3-7.5 yearsSee question
Theft of Means of Transportation is a class 4 felony 9If that is how you are charged). The presumptive prison sentence is 2.5 years. The super mitigated is 1 year and the aggravated max is 3.75.
However, if this is your first time offense, you would be probation eligible. If granted probation, a judge can sentence you up to one year in the county jail.See question
One prior was in 2001 the DUI was in 2004 and other prior 2012
If you only have one prior Aggravated DUI (and all your other convictions are misdemeanors) then you are looking at .75 - 2.75 years in prison.
If you have 2 prior Aggravated DUI felonies, then you are looking at 2.25 - 5.75 years in prison if convicted.
It all depends on how many felonies you have and how old they are. Aggravated DUI felonies are forever allegeable as priors.

If the active metabolite (THC) comes back in your system you will be prosecuted for DUI. The court will send you a summons in the mail. This could take up to one year to receive notice. It typically takes the lab 6-9 months to test for drugs in the system. Hopefully, you have a medical marijuana card. You also need to hire a lawyer. If you smoked 8 hours prior, what was the cops probable cause for arrest? How did you fail these tests? These are all things that need to be investigated. The stop will be good if you did make an illegal turn. And, you have a 5th Amendment Right to remain silent. You should lays use it. Never Ever admit to committing an illegal act. Simply invoke your right to remain silent.See question
I got caught with a spoon, syringe, pipe, and a scale. However, it was all clean. No drug residue or anything.
All drug charges in Arizona start as a class 6 felony. Narcotic possession and meth possession is a class 4 felony. Sale cases are even higher felonies. However, if this is your first drug offense, you do not have a violent criminal history, and this case does not involve meth, you should be probation eligible with no jail. Contact a local lawyer to discuss your case.See question
I was driving from Mesa az to Chandler az and pulled over by a Gilbert policemen in Chandler how is this legal?
This is completely legal. There is no jurisdiction issue with the police. A gilbert officer is state sworn and can technically arrest you anywhere in Arizona.. It sound like this was a TASK Force where many agencies focus on DUI arrests in a concentrated area of the Valley. It happens all the time. The jurisdiction is settled by sending the case to the Chandler Court. This is a good place to be. Call a lawyer and get representation.See question
