MINORS / UNDERAGE INDIVIDUALS FACE NUMEROUS PENALTIES

Underage individuals arrested for alcohol violations or use of a false identification (fake i.d.) to gain entrance to a bar or to purchase alcohol should take their criminal matter seriously as there are numerous consequences. Typically, there are criminal penalties, administrative motor vehicle driving privilege penalties, as well as a possible disciplinary hearing with administrative personnel where students could be put placed on probation, suspended or even expelled based on code of conduct violations. Often times, first-time offenders may receive a pre-trial diversion or obtain probation with community service. However, not all courts are alike and not all criminal defendants are treated the same. Depending upon the severity of the charges, the particular police officer involved or any other aggravating factors, a defendant may face harsher penalties such as increased fines and jail time.

TAKE YOUR MATTER SERIOUSLY

Being accused of a crime is a serious matter and not one to be taken lightly. Jails are full of innocent men and women who have been victims of the criminal justice system and have fallen through the cracks. It is important that you fully understand your legal rights and know when to enforce them to prevent you or a loved one from being unjustly accused and dragged through the court system. The sooner you get an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side, the better chance you have of protecting your rights.

DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY

It is imperative that you retain an aggressive criminal defense attorney as soon as possible so that you can explore your options and realize certain defenses. An accused’s failure to question and force the government to a certain standard by pleading guilty would be giving up valuable constitutional rights and privileges that could ultimately affect the amount of time you spend in jail and the amount of fines, fees and jail costs owed, without receiving anything in return.

DO NOT TAKE LEGAL ADVICE FROM A PROSECUTOR OR A COP

Often times, there are many things the prosecution does not want you to know. For instance, the government may not have all the witnesses available or witnesses needed to prosecute their case or the prosecution may have evidentiary issues proving every element of the crime. Also, the government may have exculpatory evidence that could prove your innocence. Great things can sometimes happen when the defense is ready for trial and the prosecution is not. A rush to judgment to plead guilty after speaking with a prosecutor or a family friend who is a law enforcement officer might prevent you from the realization of certain potential defenses that could dismiss your case, reduce the charges to a lesser-included offense, or give you a chance to consider alternatives that might help you to avoid the maximum penalties, fines and typical inconveniences associated with someone who is not represented by counsel.

TYPICAL CRIMINAL CONSEQUENCES

Typical penalties for a conviction of a criminal offense without aggravating circumstances include the following:

  • Possible Jail Time
  • Court Ordered Counseling / Rehabilitation & Fees
  • Court Fines And Surcharges
  • Community Service Hours
  • Summary Or Supervised Probation
  • Other Court-Ordered Consequences
  • Driver’s License Suspension Or Revocation Of Driving Privileges

  • Effect Of Criminal Arrest Or Conviction On Existing Probation Matters
  • Effect Of Criminal Arrest Or Conviction On Other Pending Criminal Matters
  • Effect Of Criminal Arrest Or Conviction On Other Future Sentencing Matters

THE DISMISSAL OR ACQUITTAL OF YOUR CHARGE IS POSSIBLE

Every criminal case is different. There are different facts and circumstances leading up to the reasons why a police officer arrests you for a criminal offense. Each accused person may have a different response to interrogation questions posed throughout the investigation. Each arrest may involve an array of law enforcement officers with varying levels of competence and experience. One suspect’s case could result in a very different outcome, though both suspects are charged with the same offense.

COMMON CRIMINAL DEFENSES

Under U.S. and Arizona law, you may have a number of legal arguments or defenses to the crime you or a loved one has been charged with that could lead to a reduced charge or even acquittal of the crime. Included below is a partial list of common tactics and defenses:

  • Illegal Search And Seizure
  • No Probable Cause To Arrest
  • Invalid Search Warrant
  • Violation Of The Accused’s Miranda Rights
  • Violation Of The Accused’s Right To Counsel
