The City of Buckeye has been identified as one of the fastest growing communities both in Arizona and the United States as a whole. Of course, many bars and restaurants follow the construction of new communities and the significant growth in population. Consequently, officers are constantly added to the ever growing Buckeye Police Department and stricter enforcement of the state's DUI and criminal code follows. In an effort to reserve the quality of life in Buckeye, the police and prosecutor's office has taken an aggressive approach when dealing with people who have been arrested and charged with DUI and other criminal offenses.
BUCKEYE DUI DEFENSE
Police in Buckeye receive a significant amount of training and place great emphasis on identifying drivers who are suspected of being impaired by drugs or alcohol, conducting a thorough investigation and preparing a solid case for the city prosecutor or county attorney.
After being stopped for an alleged violation, Buckeye Police will routinely engage you in conversation about recent drug use or alcohol consumption, ask you to participate in field sobriety testing and subject you to blood and/or breath testing following an arrest. Depending upon the results of the intoxilyzer or blood tests, you may face charges such as:
- Driving while Impaired to the Slightest Degree
- Extreme DUI
- Super Extreme DUI
- DUI with Drugs
- Aggravated DUI
These charges can result in severe penalties including:
- Jail or Prison Terms
- Loss of Drivers License
- Significant Fines
- Ignition Interlock Device Requirements
- Mandatory Alcohol or Drug Education
Although DUI cases are very complex, there are a number of potential defenses which must be investigated and can be used to obtain a favorable resolution. An example of some potential defenses involve:
- Police having no legal basis to stop you
- No probable cause to arrest
- Satisfactory performance on the field sobriety tests
- A violation of your Miranda Rights
- Challenges to the reliability or accuracy of blood test results.
By contacting my office, I can assist you in obtaining a possible dismissal of the DUI charges, a reduction in the penalties you might face or obtaining the most favorable outcome possible. During my representation, I will also advise you about:
- The Court Process
