TAKE YOUR TRAFFIC MATTER SERIOUSLY

Being accused of a crime is a serious matter and not one to be taken lightly. 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. Traffic matters are upsetting and usually are a minor inconvenience, however, they should be taken seriously. If you fail to appear for your court date or comply with a court’s sentencing requirements, a default judgment may be imposed against you and the court will notify the Motor Vehicle Division to suspend your driving privilege due to your default status, resulting in additional fines and fees to the court and MVD to reinstate your privilege to drive. If you drive and are stopped by the police while your license or privilege to drive is suspended, you will be subject to criminal penalties and additional sanctions, such as driving on a suspended or revoked license charge. Depending on the jurisdiction of the offense, a court could notify a credit bureau of any unpaid or delinquent balance, notify the Arizona Department of Revenue for interception of your state income tax refund, prevent the re-registration of your vehicle(s) in Arizona, send your matter to a collection agency and take action against you by garnishing your wages or attaching a lien to your property in order to settle unpaid fines and administrative fees, including the costs of collection.

DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY OR RESPONSIBLE

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:

  • Jail Time Or Prison Time / Imprisonment
  • Court Ordered Counseling / Rehabilitation & Fees
  • Court Ordered Driving School
  • Court Fines And Surcharges
  • Mandatory Statutory Fees
  • Payment Of Restitution To Victim
  • Community Service Hours
  • Summary Or Supervised Probation Or Parole
  • Other Court-Ordered Consequences

  • Additional Driver’s License Restrictions / Ignition Interlock Requirements
  • Mandatory Insurance Requirements
  • Collateral Consequences Of A Criminal Record
  • Financial Stress
  • Personal Stress
  • Negative Pressures On Family
  • Negative Effect On Visitation Matters & Child Custody Proceedings
  • Criminal Record / Tainted Background Checks
  • Prevention Of Certain Career Opportunities
  • Possible Loss Of Fingerprint Card

  • Additional Consequences Due To A Probation Violation, Future Arrest Or Conviction
  • 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 OFFENSE IS POSSIBLE

Every case is different. There are different facts and circumstances leading up to the reasons why a police officer cited you for a particular offense and there is usually two sides to every story which may help you avoid a criminal traffic conviction or responsibility for a civil traffic ticket. Many tickets that are contested are often times dismissed. The remaining may enjoy reduced fines or other plea bargain arrangements. However, many people do not fight their tickets because of the anxiety of having the ticket unresolved. However, your fine is typically close to what you would have paid if you accepted responsibility and pled guilty initially.

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
