Can I ask A judge to reduce fines and fees after prison?
Unfortunately unless you were given higher than statutory fines the judge wouldn't be able to reduce them. Likewise if...
I blew a .186 coming home from the bar a couple of weeks ago. I want to know if it is worth it to hire a lawyer (about $3,000) or if I will be able to get a plea bargain to reduce it to a normal DUI which has lesser penalties with just a public defender. I don't want to waste money but I want to have the best shot at getting this reduced to decrease headaches for my whole next year.
Speak to a couple of different experienced lawyers to see what your best option are. If you are looking strictly for a...
My Father has his CDL and has been driving a truck for like 10-15 years now. He’s NEVER been in trouble with the law EVER before. He's a really good guy, honest and hardworking. He out of nowhere got 18 blood clots throughout his lungs and 1 pass through his heart, and he survived. He’s lucky to be alive. The 1st night out of the hospital he got charged with a DUI and the Officer’s didn’t even keep him in custody they didn’t even impound the car. He’s on new medicine for his clots and it was the first time he had operated a vehicle since being released from hospital. It’s been 3 months N he’s working again, N his boss just pulled him from his Truck saying the insurance company won’t insure him anymore! Is there anyways around this? I mean he’s not convicted and he passed the DOT physical
Probably should have fought the DUI--if its still pending he should have a lawyer for that. The insurance can do...
Do subsections (d) and (i) of ARS 28-1383 conflict with ARS 13-116 and violate the 5th and 14th amendments? ARS 13-116 Double punishment- an act or omission which is made punishable in different ways by different sections of the laws may be punished under both, but in no event may sentences be other than concurrent. An acquittal or conviction and sentence under either one bars a prosecution for the same act or omission under any other, to the extent the Constitution of the United States or of this state require. The 5th Amendment Due process as to double jeopardy and the 14th Amendment as it violates my equal protection of the law as it is the only crime punishable with 2 prison sentences as you go to prison for 4 months then get placed on probation suspending another sentence for 1 charge
Based on your explanation of the facts and your statement of the law, the answer is no.
One of the cases had been dismissed and was refiled. I don't any details yet as to why it was dismissed at the time. I was never notified of anything. It was from a year ago. I do have a history with Dui's but I'm wondering is this the best I can hope for? I have a public defender now and I want know if trying to pay for a private attorney would be worth it for a better outcome. I know nothing can be guaranteed but I would I have a better chance?
Maybe. Best thing to do is contact a couple lawyers in your area and ask for a free in person consultation. Bring all...
Yesterday is when the incidents / "fails" occurred, today is when I took my car to get serviced. The monitoring report shows 4 fails within a 12 minute period: .06, .041, .048, .039. I read that .08 readings and above constitute a mandatory 6 month extension on the device. While the readings above are a "fail" threshold set per the device, will the DMV count them as a violation or no since it is not above .08?Also, the last 3 are under .05, which AZ law states "under .05 may be presumed defendant was not under the influence of intoxicating liquor." My device also never "locked out" per these 4 attempts, which I find odd, just allowing me to rack up the "fails" if continued. If it goes to executive hearing, how strong is my case for faulty equipment. BAC only goes down .015/hr not .02/3mins
Going to be rough at an administrative hearing... the DMV has some fairly wide discretionary powers. Obviously, no more...
Hi there, i recently received a DUI in tempe, there are multiple errors in the report, such as the incorrect corner of which he said he saw me leaving from, said it was on the north east corner in the report and its really on the northwest corner, etc, when i refused fsts he got mad and literally ripped my nail out of my nail bed, and said he took me to a dui van in a parking lot when we really went to a station, i was assigned a public defender, but just wants me to plea out, so i guess the question is, do these little discrepancies really matter in a report? Or its pretty much the cops word unless i have a paid lawyer?? my public defender didnt seem so enthusiastic about fighting it, and just wanted me to plea. Can Anyone out there give me some advice?
Certainly every mistake by the police can be exploited. But those mistakes by themselves won't win the day. There are...
