St. Patrick’s Day DUI Patrols At least 18 police agencies all around the Valley plan to participate in DUI saturation patrols in place for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday weekend, including Avondale, Buckeye, El Mirage, Glendale, Goodyear, Peoria, Surprise, Wickenburg, Tolleson, Phoenix, Tempe, Gilbert, Mesa, ASU PD, DPS, MCSO, Paradise Valley and Scottsdale. Saint Patrick’s Day, originally a Christian Feast Day celebration for the legendary Irish missionary and bishop, has come to be closely associated with drinking due to the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol being lifted on this day. For further information including a detailed, interactive map of the planned patrols, click the link to the abc15.com article below: http://www.abc15.com/news/state/dont-drink-and-drive-police-upping-dui-patrols-for-st-patricks-day-weekend?google_editors_picks=true Gordon Thompson https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/ https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/blog/ #DUI #CriminalLaw #DUIBlog

What is a DUI in Arizona, No. 6, State v. White Eyes The purpose of this series of podcasts is to discuss the facts, legal issues and sentences imposed in Arizona Felony DUI cases so people can have an understanding of how individuals can be found guilty of Felony DUI and what sentences can be imposed. The cases discussed in this series are primarily based on memorandum decisions issued by the Arizona Court of Appeals. Memorandum decisions are only binding on that individual case and are not legal precedent for other cases. However, their discussion of the facts, legal issues presented and sentences imposed are a good guide for what it takes to be found guilty of a felony DUI in Arizona, and what the sentences imposed could be. Keep in mind almost all of these cases arose from the defendant’s appeal after a Felony DUI trial. Sentences for Felony DUIs which are resolved by plea agreement are often less than those imposed after a jury trial. State v. White Eyes, No. 1 CA-CR 14-0162 (5/19/15). FACTS: A Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office detective responded to a noise complaint at a bar. As the detective was leaving the bar his attention was drawn to a blue vehicle in the parking lot. He engaged in a conversation with Defendant, who was sitting in the driver’s seat, and learned her driver’s license was suspended. The detective advised Defendant not to drive, and proceeded to leave the area. Approximately five minutes later, that detective observed the defendant driving the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. The detective immediately noticed the odor of alcohol emanating from the defendant and she had bloodshot, watery eyes, slurred speech, and swayed while speaking. The defendant admitted having consumed two pitchers of beer earlier in the evening. During the HGN test, Defendant exhibited six of six signs of impairment. The detective also asked Defendant to perform additional field sobriety tests, but she refused because of a knee injury. The defendant was arrested and submitted to a blood draw, which indicated a blood alcohol concentration of 0.07%. The defendant was charged with Aggravated DUI and was found guilty of the offense at trial. LEGAL ISSUE: No legal issues were discussed in the decision. SENTENCE: The trial court ordered Defendant to be incarcerated for four months, which she satisfied with her presentence incarceration credit. The trial court also placed Defendant on supervised probation for a period of three years following her release from custody. The memorandum decision is available by clicking the link below, along with the transcript/podcast of this recording: https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/what-is-a-dui-in-arizona-no-6-state-v-white-eyes/ Gordon Thompson https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/ https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/blog/ #DUI #CriminalLaw #DUIBlog

What is a Felony DUI in Arizona, #5, State v. Flores The purpose of this series of podcasts is to discuss the facts, legal issues and sentences imposed in Arizona Felony DUI cases so people can have an understanding of how individuals can be found guilty of Felony DUI and what sentences can be imposed. The cases discussed in this series are primarily based on memorandum decisions issued by the Arizona Court of Appeals.

Keep in mind almost all of these cases arose from the defendant’s appeal after a Felony DUI trial. Sentences for Felony DUIs which are resolved by plea agreement are often less than those imposed after a jury trial. State v. Flores, No. 1 CA-CR 14-0468 (6/23/15). FACTS: A police officer observed the vehicle the defendant was operating swerve between traffic lanes. The defendant stopped his vehicle and after making contact with the defendant the officer observed that the defendant had bloodshot and watery eyes, an odor of alcohol emanated from his breath and speech was slurred. After exiting the vehicle the defendant swayed while standing. After performing field sobriety tests, the officer noted the defendant exhibited cues of impairment on all tests. The defendant was arrested and consented to having his blood drawn. The results of the blood draw were 0.158%. The State then charged Flores with (1) aggravated driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor and (2) aggravated driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor (blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more), class four felonies. The State also alleged a historical prior conviction of driving under the influence of an intoxicating liquor. The defendant was found guilty in a jury trial. LEGAL ISSUE: No legal issues were discussed in the decision. SENTENCE: The defendant was sentenced to four months concurrent sentences.

What is a DUI in Arizona, #4, State v. Hernandez The purpose of this series of podcasts is to discuss the facts, legal issues and sentences imposed in Arizona Felony DUI cases so people can have an understanding of how individuals can be found guilty of Felony DUI and what sentences can be imposed. The cases discussed in this series are primarily based on memorandum decisions issued by the Arizona Court of Appeals. Memorandum decisions are only binding on that individual case and are not legal precedent for other cases. However, their discussion of the facts, legal issues presented and sentences imposed are a good guide for what it takes to be found guilty of a felony DUI in Arizona, and what the sentences imposed could be. Keep in mind almost all of these cases arose from the defendant’s appeal after a Felony DUI trial. Sentences for Felony DUIs which are resolved by plea agreement are often less than those imposed after a jury trial. State v. Hernandez, No. 1 CA-CR (6/30/15). FACTS: A police officer observed the defendant’s speeding vehicle and pulled him over. Upon making contact with the defendant the officer observed that the defendant’s speech was slurred, he was unstable on his feet, and his eyes were red and watery. The officer arrested the defendant and requested that he submit to a blood draw, which the defendant refused to do. The officer then obtained a search warrant from a judge. Pursuant to the warrant the officer, who was trained and certified as a phlebotomist, drew the defendant’s blood. Defendant’s blood tested at .182%. The defendant was charged with Aggravated DUI. The defendant was found guilty by jury and then the trial judge determined the defendant had two prior felony DUI convictions. LEGAL ISSUE: Before trial the defendant made a motion to suppress the blood test results. The defendant alleged that the seizure of the blood by search warrant was illegal because the officer executed the warrant for his blood draw at night although the warrant issued by the court was a daytime warrant, and 2) because the affidavit for search warrant was signed by the judge rather than the officer. The trial court had denied his motion to suppress and on appeal the court of appeals agreed saying these were technical mistakes which did not invalidate the warrant. SENTENCE: The defendant was sentenced to eight years in prison.

What is a DUI in Arizona, #3, State v Pelayo The purpose of this series of podcasts is to discuss the facts, legal issues and sentences imposed in Arizona Felony DUI cases so people can have an understanding of how individuals can be found guilty of Felony DUI and what sentences can be imposed. The cases discussed in this series are primarily based on memorandum decisions issued by the Arizona Court of Appeals.

Keep in mind almost all of these cases arose from the defendant’s appeal after a Felony DUI trial. Sentences for Felony DUIs which are resolved by plea agreement are often less than those imposed after a jury trial. State v. Pelayo, No. 1 CA-CR 14-0178 (3/10/15) FACTS: A civilian witness saw a white Dodge, traveling east, run a red light and hit a truck. The witness saw the defendant get out of the driver’s door of the white Dodge. A police officer arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and identified the defendant as the driver of the white Dodge. The officer observed the defendant swaying, having an odor of alcohol on him, that his eyes were bloodshot and watery, and he was slurring his speech. The defendant said he did not know what happened, that he was not driving and that the car belonged to his friend. The defendant then handed the officer his Arizona Identification card from which the officer learned that the defendant’s privilege to drive had been revoked. The defendant refused to perform field sobriety tests. His blood was later drawn and tested at 0.296%. The defendant was charged with Aggravated DUI based on the fact his privilege to drive had been revoked. At trial an MVD custodian of records testified the defendant had been sent multiple notices that his privilege to drive had been suspended or revoked. The defendant was found guilty and thereafter the jury determined the defendant had three prior felony DUI convictions. LEGAL ISSUE: No legal issues were discussed in the decision. SENTENCE: The sentence was ten years in prison.

What is a Felony DUI in Arizona, No. 2, State v. Wiggs The purpose of this series of podcasts is to discuss the facts, legal issues and sentences imposed in Arizona Felony DUI cases so people can have an understanding of how individuals can be found guilty of Felony DUI and what sentences can be imposed. The cases discussed in this series are primarily based on memorandum decisions issued by the Arizona Court of Appeals. Memorandum decisions are only binding on that individual case and are not legal precedent for other cases. However, their discussion of the facts, legal issues presented and sentences imposed are a good guide for what it takes to be found guilty of a felony DUI in Arizona, and what the sentences imposed could be. Keep in mind almost all of these cases arose from the defendant’s appeal after a Felony DUI trial. Sentences for Felony DUIs which are resolved by plea agreement are often less than those imposed after a jury trial. State v. Wiggs, No. 1 CA-CR No. 1 CA-CR 14-0294 (3/31/15) FACTS: A witness heard a “crashing noise,” and observed a car had just been in an accident. The witness called 911 and saw the defendant, who was the sole occupant, exit the car, walked around it, and then attempt to re-start the car. The witness told the defendant that he had contacted emergency services. The defendant immediately turned and ran towards an apartment complex adjacent to the scene of the accident. Police officers responded to the scene and determined the registered owner of the car was the defendant’s Mother, with a registered address at the apartment complex. The officers walked to the registered address, knocked on the door, and the defendant answered. The defendant matched the description of the driver, but denied driving the vehicle. The defendant lied about the location of the car. The defendant’s eyes were “extremely bloodshot and watery” and he smelled of alcohol. An officer conducted the HGN test and observed all six cues of impairment. In addition, while attempting and failing to properly conduct the “walk-and-turn” test, the defendant stated he would not be able to complete the test. The officers arrested the defendant and then found the car keys in the defendant’s pocket. The defendant’s glasses were missing a lens and in a search of the car revealed a single glasses’ lens located on the floor on the driver’s side. The officers transported the defendant to a nearby hospital where a blood test revealed Appellant’s blood alcohol level was .206%. The defendant was charged with Aggravated DUI. The State also alleged the defendant had six historical felony prior convictions. LEGAL ISSUES: The defendant raised several issues on appeal. Two of those are: Forensic Examination Report The trial court admitted into evidence the Forensic Examination Report stating the alcohol level. The court of appeals said that was permissible because the criminalist who prepared the report testified at trial. Car Keys The trial court allowed the police officers to testify that the keys found on the defendant were for the case, however, the State did not seek to admit the actual keys into evidence. The court of appeals said there was no error in allowing the testimony because the issue was did the defendant have the car keys in his possession and the State did not need to produce the actual physical keys into evidence to prove that point. SENTENCE: After trial the defendant admitted he had two historical priors. The court sentenced the defendant to ten years in prison. The memorandum decision is available by clicking the link below, along with the transcript/podcast of this recording: https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/what-is-a-felony-dui-in-arizona-no-2-state-v-wiggs/ Gordon Thompson https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/ https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/blog/ #DUI #CriminalLaw #DUIBlog

What is a DUI in Arizona, No. 1, State v. Duffy The cases discussed in this series are primarily based on memorandum decisions issued by the Arizona Court of Appeals. Memorandum decisions are only binding on that individual case and are not legal precedent for other cases. However, their discussion of the facts, legal issues presented and sentences imposed are a good guide for what it takes to be found guilty of a DUI in Arizona, and what the sentences could be. Keep in mind almost all of these cases arose from the defendant’s appeal after a felony DUI trial. Sentences for felony DUIs which are resolved by plea agreement are often less than those imposed after a jury trial. State v. Duffy, No. 1 CA-CR 13-0896 (1/13/15). FACTS: Police observed the defendant carrying a box of beer across a convenience store’s parking lot and then drink a beer from the box. The defendant appeared to sway back and forth. He then sat in the driver’s seat of his car, put the key in the ignition, and started the car. Police told him Sgt. Livingston knocked on the passenger window and told the defendant he couldn’t let him drive away because he had seen the defendant drink a beer. The defendant exhibited signs of possible alcohol impairment, including slurred speech and the odor of alcohol on his breath. The police told the defendant to wait on the curb until he could determine whether the defendant was impaired and shortly thereafter the defendant fled on foot. At the direction of the first police officer another officer arrested him for criminal trespass and processed him for DUI but never arrested him for DUI prior to administering the breath tests. The defendant consented to the breath test which was .187%. LEGAL ISSUE: Before trial the defendant moved to suppress the breath test results. He alleged that the breath tests were administered pursuant to A.R.S. § 28-1321, the Implied Consent Law which requires the defendant be arrested for DUI before the tests can be administered. Trial court denied the motion; the defendant went to trial, lost, and appealed the denial of the motion suppress. The court of appeals said that when he was ordered out of the vehicle he was being detained for a possible DUI and the subsequent arrest arose from that detention so the arrest was a possible violation of the DUI laws and administration of the breath tests were authorized under A.R.S. § 28-1321. SENTENCE: The decision did not include the sentence.

INS Assistance & Scam Alert In the wake of the 1/25/17 Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements Executive Order, and a subsequent 2/20/17 memorandum issued by the Department of Homeland Security dealing with the implementation of that order, there is an increased need for legal representation for illegal immigrants, and even for legal immigrants, who are charged with a crime. Pro bono (free) and low-cost assistance is sometimes available from local legal organizations and community outreach groups, as well as through the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix. However, those in need of legal representation are advised to be aware that the functions of a notary or “notario” are much different in the US than in Mexico, and notaries (who are not also attorneys) cannot give legal advice on immigration matters, or any other legal matters. Arizona Senate Bill 1421, which went to committee last week, seeks to force notaries who are not attorneys and who advertise their services to include a notice in English and Spanish stating just exactly that.

Phoenix PD Enlist Private CCTVs The Phoenix Police Department will conduct a pilot program called Virtual Block Watch, where private citizens and business owners can register their personal outdoor video cameras with the Police Department. The system would virtually map the registered cameras, and notify police where potential video footage can be found if a crime is committed within purview of the camera. A spokesman for the department stated the program would not entail live monitoring of the video footage. The program will begin in the Maryvale Estrella Mountain Precinct sometime this month, with possible expansion citywide.

Immigration Enforcement Order An Executive Order signed by Donald Trump on January 25, 2017 entitled Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements has raised many concerns over the scope and potential impacts of the order. The order calls for the immediate construction of a physical wall (“a contiguous…impassable physical barrier”) along the southern border between the United States and Mexico (the length of which is approximately 2,000 miles); the immediate construction of detention facilities to detain aliens along that border; an increased number of asylum officers (whose purpose is to determine the credibility of persons seeking asylum, which relief the order claims is being abused) and border patrol agents; and seeks to make State and local law enforcement officers perform the functions of the INS. The order also instructs prosecutorial agencies to prioritize immigration offenders from Mexico specifically. For more details on the order and the issues raised thereby, click theintercept.com article below: https://theintercept.com/2017/02/09/trump-administration-prepares-to-execute-vicious-executive-order-on-deportations/ Gordon Thompson https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/ https://gordonthompsonattorney.net/blog/ #DUI #CriminalLaw #DUIBlog
