Here Are 10 TOP AZ DUI Arrest Secrets:
- Refusing a Blood or Breath Test is Not an Admission of Guilt: However, a breath or blood test refusal in Arizona will trigger an automatic 1 year suspension of driver’s license. To add to that, the police will still likely be able to obtain a search warrant from a judge to have the breath or blood sample taken so be wise about this. You will take your chances if you refuse and could be subject to an automatic loss of license (which can be challenged).
- If You Refuse the Test You Will NOT "Definitely" Lose Your License for One Year: Here is the truth – you will not definitely lose your license if you refuse the breath or blood test – but again you take your chances as in number 1 above.
- You Can Win a Breath or Blood Test Result DUI - It is Not Hopeless: However, it will depend on the level of alcohol in your blood stream and the ability to retrograde the analysis. This is a scientific test that is done to verify the competency of the results. The results will hold up in court, regardless of which way they go.
- Field Sobriety Tests Are Not Reliable in Regards to Alcohol Impairment: By Arizona law, they are not determinate of impairment but are used by law enforcement as tools to determine if there is probable cause to do further testing. This testing will probably include a breath or blood test.
- You Will Not Definitely Get 10 Days in Jail for a 1st DUI Arrest: Normally on a first time DUI with a blood alcohol content below .150- the standard plea offer is 10 days jail. However, 9 days of the jail sentence will be suspended upon completion of alcohol screening and treatment classes. This results in 1 day of actual jail time.
- The Intoxilyzer 5000 (standard state-administered breath test), Is Not Always Accurate - You Can Defeat It in Court (Preferably With Legal Counsel): It has been shown that the accuracy of the test results can be challenged for lack of proper care, maintenance and calibration of the testing equipment.
- The Legal Limit of 0.08 BAC is Not Necessarily Drunk: However, BAC of .08 is presumed to be the impairment level by Arizona statute.
- You Don't Have to Pay a Court Appointed Attorney Before You Go to Court: You are within your legal limits to opt for a private counsel who will probably serve you better than your public defender, simply because the public defender's case load is extremely high and they work a standard week. Your private counsel will do whatever it takes to help keep you get lower fines, keep you out of jail and if at all possible, have you found innocent.
- If Your Attorney Insists You to Plead Guilty at Your Arraignment, He Probably Could Do a Much Better Job: No person accused of a crime should be pleading guilty at an Arraignment. An Arraignment starts the process and there is a lot of investigation, research, and legal challenges to the charges that needs to take place before ever pleading guilty. An attorney who advises a client to plead guilty at an Arraignment has not done his/her job and is not effectively representing the client.
- Good Lawyers Are Not Cheap, and Cheap Lawyers Can Cost You a Lot: Like anything else in life…you get what you pay for. A highly qualified, skilled, and experienced attorney can make the difference between freedom and imprisonment. Although, hiring a cheap or inexpensive attorney may save money in the short term; it may end up being a very costly and risky decision in the long term.
