United States Supreme Court New Ruling on the 4th Amendment

The United States Supreme Court recently issued another blow to the 4th Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizures. The ruling caused controversy when they declared that a vehicle may be stopped based on an anonymous 911 tip.

Breaking down the new Ruling on Marijuana and DUI's

On April 22, 2014, the Arizona Supreme Court shut down the government's ability to prosecute Arizona motorists for driving under the influence of marijuana unless the person is impaired at the time of the stop. The ruling focuses on two chemical compounds found in marijuana; Carboxy-THC, which does not cause impairment, or Hydroxy- THC, which does cause impairment. The issue presented was whether the legislature intended to include "its metabolite" in the plural form which would include Carboxy-THC, even though it has proven to be non-impairing.

Signed or Unsigned- Can a ticket be used as evidence?

Many defendants ask whether it matters if the officer signed the complaint or ticket at the site of issue. Unfortunately, this is a complicated topic without a concrete answer.

The issue was whether a criminal complaint was signed by someone who merely relied on another's information, which said that the defendant committed some illegal activity, and if that is sufficient to present in court.

Baby DUI

Underage DUIs, or "Baby DUIs" as they are referred to, are unique in Arizona because they are handled in part like a juvenile case and in part like an adult DUI. For instance, If you are under the age of 18 (and not too close to your 18th birthday), your case will be filed in juvenile court, likely in Mesa, Arizona, where the consequences and sentencing structure are significantly different than adult courts like Scottsdale City Court or Tempe City Court..

Salt River Fields 5th Annual Arizona BBQ Festival

This weekend there was "all the fixin's" at the 5th annual Arizona BBQ Festival held in Scottsdale at Salt River Fields. There was no shortage of entertainment this weekend, because if tons of smoked meat and beer wasn't enough to entertain you, there was always live music playing throughout the day, along with the "redneck zone". The "redneck zone" was an 18+ area where there were themed games and contests happening throughout the day. From a watermelon seed spitting contest, to keg rolling, to a mullet beauty pageant, there was never a dull moment in the day.
