What are the penalties for a conviction on DUI charges?

When police pull someone over in Arizona on suspicion of drunk driving and a breath test or blood test indicates the driver's blood alcohol concentration level is 0.08 percent or higher, then that person will be charged with drunk driving. These numbers are even lower for certain categories of people. For example, commercial vehicle drivers will be charged with drunk driving and subsequently penalized if their BAC is 0.04 or above. Also, if the driver is under the legal drinking age, then they may face license suspension if they have any alcohol in their system whatsoever. The types of penalties a person convicted of drunk driving faces depends on the level of alcohol in their system and whether it is a first offense.

Arizona bill would penalize physicians who don't follow pot laws

While medical marijuana is legal in Arizona, there are rules physicians must follow when it comes to prescribing it. Recently, a measure was passed by the Arizona House Health Committee regarding medical marijuana. Under House Bill 2067, if a physician did not follow state rules regarding the prescription of medical marijuana, then that physician will be charged with a felony. If convicted, they could be incarcerated for up to 12 months. As it stands right now, if a physician does not follow state rules regarding the prescription of medical marijuana, they will be disciplined by the medical board and could lose their license to practice medicine. This bill passed the House Health Committee six to three. Next, the measure will go through a standard constitutional review, and then move on to the whole House.

Bill would change laws on blood alcohol content level testing

Most people in Arizona are safe drivers and will not get behind the wheel of a car if they are drunk. Unfortunately, car accidents still occur. If a person is in a car accident that injures or kills someone else and that person is accused of drunk driving, it is important that that person's constitutional rights are not violated.

Don't let domestic violence charges mar your entire future

Domestic violence claims can be very multifaceted. Of course, while it is important to take these cases seriously, it is also important to keep in mind that the accused still has rights that deserve to be upheld. This is crucial because being convicted of domestic violence charges can have severe consequences. A person in Arizona who has been convicted of domestic violence charges could be incarcerated. Moreover, even after they're released from jail, they may not be allowed to possess a firearm, even if they want to own one simply for recreational purposes or for potential self-defense purposes.

When will one's name be placed on the sex offender registry?

No one wants their reputation left in tatters after being accused of a crime. Unfortunately, in Arizona, people convicted of certain sex crimes must register as a sex offender. Residents of Prescott Valley may be surprised to learn the scope of crimes that fall under this mandate, particularly when it comes to crimes involving children.
