Murder of priest leads to criminal arrest

Criminal charges are always serious but defendants must remember that a charge is not a guarantee of a conviction. A felony assault charge, a murder charge or more can all lead to long-term penalties and the right defense process is important. Every person accused of such a crime is promised a defense under Arizona's laws. Even if jail time is required, sometimes sentences can be minimized with the right help.

Man killed in accident with alleged drunk driver

Drivers in and around Phoenix know that the state’s laws are strict when it comes to driving under the influence of alcohol. A drunk driving conviction can result in steep financial penalties as well as potential jail time, the ordered installation and use of an ignition interlock device and more. If an accident is part of a drunk or drugged driving arrest the consequences can become even more severe.

Officer charged with drunk driving while on duty

Phoenix area residents know that the laws surrounding drunk driving can often lead to very serious consequences when convictions are obtained. Every drunk driving conviction that a particular driver receives is likely to step up the level of penalties. Installation of ignition interlock devices, fines, jail time and more can all be part of a penalty package for drivers found guilty of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Drugs, weapons and gang activity alleged in recent arrests

Illegal drug activity is understandably of concern to Phoenix area residents. The need to maintain safety for people throughout the area is real but so, too, is the need to provide fair treatment to those persons accused of drug crimes. That includes proper treatment during an arrest as well as through the entire defense process. An arrest does not or should not guarantee a conviction or guilt on the part of any defendant.
