The "fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine" and criminal searches

The search of a Mesa resident's home or vehicle by law enforcement officials may be a stressful and upsetting process. It can be incredibly difficult to see law enforcement officials go through one's personal items and, if they allege to have found incriminating evidence, law enforcement officials may move forward with the arrest of the individual in question. It is therefore imperative that searches performed pursuant to alleged criminal matters are done in accordance with the law.

What happens when you evade police to avoid a DUI?

Arizona police have really cracked down in recent years on people who decide to operate a vehicle while intoxicated. 2017 saw tens of thousands more people pulled over, but luckily, the total number of DUI arrests only increased a little bit. This proves that more people have decided to avoid driving after a night of drinking. 

What is "premeditation"?

If a person wants to accomplish something then they may make a plan to reach their goal. While in most contexts having a plan in place is usually considered a benefit to an individual, in one particular context it may not be a good thing: accusations of criminal conduct. In particular, if an Arizona resident is accused of causing another person's death and "premeditation" is alleged, they may face a very steep and very serious uphill legal battle.
