Your Questions Answered
What if I wasn’t read my Miranda Rights?
On TV, officers read Miranda Rights to everyone as they are placing them under arrest. While this is good practice, it’s not required in real life. These rights are triggered when you’re in custody and there’s an interrogation. In many cases, officers will wait to question you until they get back to the station and will not immediately read Miranda to you when placing you under arrest. It is always best to immediately ask to speak with an attorney.
What questions should I ask my attorney?
In order to receive the best defense, here are some questions you should ask an attorney before hiring them:
How many DUI trials they have you done?
What’s the percentage of DUI cases you’ve handled relative to other cases?
How familiar are you with the forensic science behind blood and breath testing?
*Not all criminal defense attorneys handle DUI’s, or handle them well*
Will my case go to trial?
Most DUI cases do not end up going to a jury trial. It is a right that each client has, but if the case is investigated properly by an experienced DUI litigator, more than often a favorable plea will be entered.
What levels of THC can lead to DUI ?
Any sign of impairment can lead to a conviction, even if you have a medical card.
Can I be charged with a DUI if my blood or breath result is below a .08?
Arizona is a zero tolerance state, as such, any combination of drugs or alcohol to the slightest degree can result in a DUI. Everyone thinks the legal limit means just that, but unfortunately, in Arizona, it does not, this is why it is best to ask to speak to your attorney immediately.
Can my case be thrown out if I wasn't speeding or going outside of my lane?
In the event of constitutional violations, cases can be dismissed or results thrown out. However, police stops can be upheld even if the officer was wrong as to the individual traffic violation if the officer believes a driver may be impaired.
How long will my case take to resolve?
Most cases take about 4-5 months from the time of arrest until the completion of the case in the pre-trial stage, but timing largely depends on the complexity of your case.
