The appellate courts of Arizona

When a prosecutor in Arizona files criminal charges against a person in the courts of the state, the matter, if it goes to trial, will be heard in the superior court of the jurisdiction where the prosecutor filed the charges. If the matter ends and the non-prevailing party believes that a mistake was made at the lower level, that party may appeal the case to intermediate appellate court for review.

Is your DUI the result of a false positive on a testing device?

If you have a DUI charge pending against you, you may feel like there is nothing you can do to avoid a conviction. Many people in the Mesa area, like you, find themselves in similar situations. Up until now, you probably never thought you could end up with criminal charges for driving while under the influence without consuming enough alcohol to affect your movements and cognitive abilities. However, false positives on breath tests are quite common.

Ways people make a DUI arrest harder than it needs to be

Arizona police have really cracked down on drunk drivers in recent years. In 2017, police made over 93,000 more traffic stops than in the previous year. However, the actual number of arrests only increased slightly, which suggests many Arizona residents avoid getting behind the wheel after a night of drinking. 

Defending against illegal searches

It can be incredibly traumatic to witness law enforcement officials rifling through one's personal possessions, tearing through their home or emptying out the contents of their car for all of the world to see. Although in some cases it is legal for Arizona police officers to perform these extensive searches of suspects' property, in other situations law enforcement officials may overstep their boundaries and may perform searches that violate individuals' constitutional rights.

Arizona gymnastics coach cleared of sexual misconduct allegations

Earlier this year former sports doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to prison for allegedly committing misconduct against a number of athletes who were under his care. His case sparked outrage in Arizona and throughout the rest of the country and caused youth sports organizations to take a careful look at how athletes are treated in specific programs. This deep examination of alleged misconduct and abuse in youth sports affected an Arizona gymnastics facility owner who has been involved in youth athletics for years.
