    Introduction to My AZ Criminal Defense Lawyers

    Is There A Criminal Statute Of Limitations In Arizona?

    The statute of limitations refers to how long the prosecutor has to make charges against an alleged offender. Arizona recognizes set timeframes for different levels of crimes and specific types of crimes, although it’s important to remember that some crimes may also be prosecuted at the federal level, which have their own guidelines. Generally speaking in Arizona, petty crimes have a statute of limitations of 6 months; misdemeanor charges have one year. Felonies may have multiple years or no statute of limitations, depending on the offense. Arizona begins the clock on the date when the crime should have been discovered, not the date when the alleged crime took place. Your Arizona criminal defense attorney can help you understand how the statute of limitations applies to your case.

    AZ Criminal Defense Lawyers Can Help You Avoid The Impact Of Felony Conviction

    The Long-Term Impact Of A Felony Conviction

    Arizona takes alleged felonies seriously and imposes many different consequences on individuals who are convicted. At minimum, offenders will be sentenced to one year in jail or prison, and are likely to also face fines, probation, mandatory classes and education, community service, and other consequences relevant to the offense. Additionally, offenders will lose their rights to vote and to own firearms. Secondary felony consequences can include custody battles, loss of professional licensure, difficulty securing housing or employment, social implications, and damage to their relationships.

    If you’re facing felony charges in Arizona, you need immediate representation from a criminal defense lawyer who will build an aggressive defense on your behalf. Having a skilled lawyer can be the difference between a conviction and a dismissed case. Call My AZ Criminal Defense Lawyers now to get started.

    Frequently Asked Questions on Criminal Defense

    If you are convicted of a crime in Arizona, the judge will follow established sentencing guidelines within the state statutes. Exactly what penalties you’ll face will depend on whether you’re convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, the severity of the circumstances, whether there were any aggravating factors, and any prior criminal history. Generally speaking, potential penalties for criminal conviction in Arizona include jail or prison time, fines, probation, community service, and mandatory classes. Felony convictions will include additional consequences, such as the loss of your rights to vote and own a firearm. Some crimes will have additional relevant consequences. For example, DUI convictions may result in an order to install an ignition interlock device on any vehicle you drive and/or driver’s license suspension.
    Although Arizona law does allow individuals to represent themselves (known as “pro se”), it’s strongly recommended to work with an experienced Arizona criminal defense attorney. Cases that are handled by attorneys have much better outcomes, and you’ll benefit from their guidance throughout your case. Your attorney will understand how to negotiate with the prosecution, uncover evidence through their own investigation, file documentation on time, understand how the law applies to your case, and will build a strong defense on your behalf. Your lawyer may be able to negotiate reduced charges or penalties or even have your case thrown out.

    Even if you have a good understanding of the law, it can be very difficult to do this for yourself while you’re dealing with the aftermath of criminal charges. At My AZ Criminal Defense Lawyers, you can be assured that you will receive the highest quality representation at an affordable price. We offer flat fee representation and flexible payment plans.

    Generally speaking, misdemeanor offenses are smaller crimes while felonies are considered violent or dangerous crimes. Some crimes may be prosecuted as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the extent or severity of the circumstances and the alleged offender’s prior criminal history. For example, most DUIs are prosecuted as misdemeanors, but may be prosecuted as a felony if there are aggravating factors, such as a minor in the vehicle at the time.
    People are surprised to learn that many criminal cases are resolved out of court through a plea deal or case dismissal. After a thorough review of your case, your Arizona defense attorney will work to negotiate your case with the prosecution. In many cases, we are able to attain reduced charges or reduced penalties for our clients. Occasionally, we may be able to have a case dismissed altogether. When we believe going to court is a better option for your case, we are prepared to handle your case in court with aggressive defense and attention to detail.
    Yes, we are experienced in negotiation and are frequently able to work out a plea deal on your behalf. Many of our clients’ cases do not proceed to court and can be fully resolved in negotiation with the prosecutor.
    During an arrest, law enforcement officials are required to inform the alleged offender of specific constitutional rights, which include the right to remain silent and the right to have attorney representation. It’s essential to take advantage of these rights to promote the best outcome of your case. Although it’s uncommon for a case to be thrown out because your Miranda rights were not given at the time of your arrest, failure to do so can invalidate any evidence or testimony that was given at the time of your arrest, making it easier for us to win your case. We strongly advise individuals to remain silent and not provide any testimony until after they have consulted with their Arizona criminal defense attorney.
    You do not need to consent to a search and have the right to say no, unless the office can produce a valid warrant that authorizes the search. If you give permission for the officer to search your home or car, you are giving up your constitutional rights. It is in your best interest to refuse the search, remain silent, and consult immediately with your attorney at My AZ Criminal Defense Lawyers.
    Motorists in Arizona give their implicit consent to take breathalyzer or other field sobriety testing. However, you can still refuse the tests if you are pulled over by law enforcement, although you may face consequences such as the immediate loss of your driver’s license. Unfortunately, breathalyzer tests can be highly inaccurate and to serious criminal charges, so we generally recommend declining the testing and immediately contacting our Arizona DUI defense lawyers for guidance on your case.
    Yes, we frequently work with clients to appeal convictions. This can be an effective long-term strategy for many different crimes and cases. We may recommend an appeal based on juror misconduct, legal error, or new evidence. It’s important to note that in Arizona, only criminal convictions can be appealed; acquittals cannot be appealed.
    A plea bargain is a common way of resolving criminal charges. The defendant will plead guilty to some or all of the charges in exchange for a lower conviction or reduced sentencing. Plea bargains offer the advantage of avoiding trial, faster resolution, less risk than going to court, and potentially fewer consequences. However, they are not the best answer for every case. Your Arizona criminal defense attorney will review your case and work with you on how best to proceed with your individual situation.
