Arizona among leading states in harshest DUI penalties

Chances are good that if you are already reading this, you're probably aware that Arizona has some of the strictest punishments for DUI convictions in the nation. But how do the sobering penalties of the Grand Canyon state look when compared to the DUI penalties of other states across the country?

DUIs and the dangers of driving after a brain injury

Let me present a hypothetical situation. There has been an accident. It might be something minor - someone veers off the road or hits a parked car in a parking lot. When the police arrive, the driver of the vehicle shows all the usual signs of intoxication. Their speech is slurred. They may be moving lethargically or might become aggressive. The police put them through the field tests for sobriety - they are unbalanced and seem to have trouble following directions. Our strict laws regarding driving under the influence means that this combination of circumstances is enough to earn drivers acting suspiciously a DUI arrest in Arizona, including the immediate penalties that come along with that.

Expect No Mothering for Mothers Who Drive Drunk

Over the course of my legal career, I have heard many misguided expectations of what people expect in the way of leniency when facing DWI/DUI charges. There are always reasons for someone to believe their circumstances are special and worthy of getting a break. But the one that prompted this post was a national news story about a single mother DUI with her three-year-old child in the car. Unfortunately, these days, neither the Courts nor the Prosecutors office give any deference to anyone's occupation or marital status when meeting out punishment. In other words, single moms don't get any additional love, merely because they are single moms.

What Happens to My Driver's License if I Get an Underage DUI?

If you find yourself in the situation of having a conviction for driving while having any alcohol in your body and you are under the age of 21, you may be wondering why your driver's license is suspended for two (2) years and if there is any way you will be able to drive within that two (2) year period. Many people in this situation need to drive for work, school or other obligations and being prevented from doing so can have a significant negative effect on their life.

Leaving the Scene of a DUI Accident in Arizona

You face harsh penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) in Arizona. Leaving the scene of a DUI only complicates the circumstances. Whether you caused the accident or were involved in the incident, by law, you are required to stop and failing to do so can result in a felony arrest.

Arizona DUI: 'Did I tell the police too much?'

tell the police-T.JPGMany people become despondent when they go home after an AZ DUI arrest and start googling. The overwhelming majority of people arrested for a DUI have never been in trouble before, and officers often use that naiveté to their advantage and get people to say and do things during the investigation that they later regret.

5 Reasons teenagers have a higher risk for DUI accidents

Being a teenager comes with a lot of new responsibilities, life lessons and getting a feel for how the real world works. Grasping reality and the serious consequences of certain actions is difficult because most teenagers are still living at home under the rules of their parent(s) or guardian(s) and don't understand the real-life battle that comes with facing a serious offense. How can they understand the effects a DUI can have on their future when they're only just beginning to grow into their adult self?
