Maricopa County is primarily known for one local personality: Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He and his entire law enforcement team at the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) are known for dispensing their own unique brand of justice to those convicted of breaking the law. People who are convicted of any crime, even people convicted of DUI, run the risk of serving their time in the famed “Tent City” that was erected adjacent to the Maricopa County jail in 1993.
For people who are arrested for drunk driving in Maricopa County, most are prosecuted based on breath test evidence. Others are prosecuted on blood and urine evidence, though to a lesser degree. In every case, arresting officers can and often do make mistakes in the administration of these tests. Even with their specialized training on the operation of the Intoxilyzer 8000, mistakes can still be made.
The possibility of errors increases considerably in the collection of blood and urine samples, where a lack of training can easily lead to contaminated samples that deliver inaccurate test results. If you are facing any kind of drunk driving charge in Maricopa County, be sure that you have a defense lawyer with the ability to provide the protection you need.
