DUI Charges Archives

Federal Court OK With Charging Sober Drivers With DUI

In Utah a sober woman was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) after admitting to having a single beer with lunch. According to the article on the incident, in October, 2016, Anexora Leon got pulled over for having an expired license plate. Once pulled over, the officer verified that Leon was telling the truth when she told them the correct plate was in the trunk. The officer suspected that she was drunk and insisted that he smelled alcohol, made her perform the roadside tests even though she had no physical signs of being drunk such as slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. The officer said she failed the roadside tests while Leon maintains that he gave her unclear instructions.

Judge vs. jury trial

When facing a criminal charge, a big decision you might have to make is whether you want your case to be decided by a judge or a jury. This is no small matter; the outcome could have a huge impact on your life.

Beyond Standard DUI

Most people are aware of the legal limit of .08 BAC to be charged with DUI in Arizona. But there are additional, more serious charges that can apply if the BAC is tested to be significantly higher.

Former "DUI Expert" Sues the Arizona Department of Safety After They Forced Him Out of His Job for Telling the Truth

Former Department of Public Safety Forensic Scientist ("DUI Expert") Greg Ohlson has filed a civil lawsuit in the United States District Court against the Arizona Department of Public Safety ("DPS") for violating his First Amendment Rights by retaliating against him for testifying negatively about DPS testing and disclosure policies and procedures in DUI cases. Mr. Ohlson worked in the Toxicology Department in the Scientific Analysis Bureau at DPS from 2004 until 2016 and testified in hundreds of DUI trials and evidentiary hearings on behalf of the prosecution as their "DUI expert" witness.

Dispelling the Myth: The Real Consequences of a Motorcycle DWI in Arizona

There seems to be a perpetual myth - not only in Arizona but in most other states as well - regarding the severity of DWI/DUI laws and the penalties for operating a motorcycle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This confusion could be related at least in part to the fact that, even in Arizona, motorcycles are vastly outnumbered on the roads by automobiles. Statistically, they are involved in far fewer DWI arrests. This seems to have fed the growth of a misconception that the laws governing motorcycle DWIs and the penalties for being arrested are not as harsh as the laws applying to automobile drivers - as well as the mistaken assumption that there is less likelihood of being stopped or arrested for DWI on a motorcycle.

When you are charged with super extreme DUI

jailcell-T.jpgThe State of Arizona is serious about drunk driving. It is by far the most harsh state when it comes to sentencing if someone is convicted of a DUI. Its DUI laws cover every type and degree of offense. There is one set of penalties for first offense DUI's, another set for aggravated/ felony DUI, and yet another level for people charged with multiple DUI offenses.

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.

DUI Charge Due to Caffeine?

A Northern California man is going through a nightmare as he is being charged with DUI for having only caffeine in his system. They've tested his blood multiple times and the only substance that they can find is caffeine. The State is aware of this and has insisted that they intend to continue their prosecution.
