Domestic violence charges cannot be dropped easily

No family is perfect. Most individuals in Arizona will get into a fight with their spouse, child, romantic partner or other family member from time to time. Most of the times these fights are ultimately not that serious, and the parties resolve the situation relatively quickly and easily. However, other times, one party will claim the other party has committed an act of domestic violence, which could open a "Pandora's box" of legal ramifications for the accused.

Law aims to give young people in Arizona a chance at redemption

It goes without saying that kids make mistakes. Sometimes, these mistakes are relatively minor while other times these mistakes have landed the juvenile in legal hot water, where they were punished harshly. However, according to the current federal case law, courts must not sentence juveniles to life in prison without parole. The case that gives us that law is also applicable to juveniles who have previously been sentenced to life in prison for murder. In Arizona, there are 34 juveniles already serving life without parole who will now need to be resentenced. However, it remains to be seen how this law will be logistically applied in future cases.

Can a sex crime conviction affect where one can live?

Sex crimes carry significant penalties, some of which last even after a person has served their time in prison. When a person in Arizona commits certain sex crimes against children, not only may they have to register as a sex offender, but it could even affect where that person is able to live.

Number of Arizona juveniles placed in adult jails soars

The number of juveniles in Maricopa County, Arizona, that have been placed in jails meant for adults has increased almost two-fold since one year ago. It has been reported by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office that, as of right now, there are 92 juveniles in MCSO jails. Of those juveniles, 79 are facing charges as adults and are waiting for their trials to commence. Also, three of the juveniles are being charged as such, but the MCSO is holding them for federal authorities.

Man running for seat in Arizona Senate charged with assault

Being a politician means having every aspect of your professional and personal life scrutinized. Therefore, politicians who are charged with a crime may be judged harshly by the public, even if it turns out they are innocent. One Arizona man running for a seat in the state senate may face such scrutiny after having been charged with assault after an alleged altercation with his former girlfriend.

Even minor juvenile drug crimes could haunt your child for life

Being a teenager unusually involves making some mistakes. For many young people, experiential learning is the best way for them to better understand the world and their place within it. Unfortunately, some kinds of mistakes can have longer-lasting results that others. Getting a traffic ticket or forgetting to study for a test can cause minor setbacks that result in little, if any, permanent damage. Getting caught with so much as a joint in their pocket, however, could completely alter the future for teenagers, especially if the criminal justice system ends up involved.
