How long do I have to wait for a DUI trial in the state of Arizona?
I was charged with a DUI in Arizona in July 2016. I hired a lawyer in early August and received a plea agreement (which I declined) in March 2017. It is now October 2017, and I have moved from Arizona to Minnesota in the mean time. I understand lawyers can push back the trial date, however I have been aggressively trying to get the trial sooner than later, especially since traveling over winter I could end up delayed and miss my trial all together. The consistent delays have cost me a lot of time, money, and stress already, should I just settle and take the plea agreement? The only reason I have been fighting for not guilty (other than firmly believing I am not guilty) is because I am applying to graduate school this winter and I do not want a DUI charge to hinder my chances of being accepted. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

How can I take care of my California DUI now that I've moved to Arizona?
I got a DUI six years ago in California. I receive SSI and haven't been able to afford the classes nor the fines. But now I'm getting stable living with my family, getting job training so I can work. I will need a valid AZ drivers license to be employed in my particular field. Please advise

Drunk in casino, was taken by police to a hotel. Will there be anything on my record?
I was in a AZ Indian Casino and was very drunk. I was taken by security and police to a room in the casino where they told me I was going to be banned for 30 days for intoxication. After that I was taken by a police officer to a nearby hotel. I was not taken to the police station. To my knowledge I was not issued a ticket. Will this event show up on a background check?
It doesn't appear that you were charged but you may still get a civil summons in the mail, possibly for disorderly...
Can I move from Arizona to Oregon with an ignition interlock device in my car?
First off, I'm not looking to get an interlock off by moving or any such thing. However, I am going to plea to DUI slightest at my court date in a month and in 3 months I am moving from Arizona to Oregon for law school. The case went on for 2 years (there was no impairment, I was just driving under 21 with a small amount of alcohol on in my system). Unfortunately this is grounds for DUI because Arizona is a zero tolerance state. I've tried all legal means to no benefit and I'm ready to plead. Will I be able to move from Arizona to Oregon, with my car, with the interlock? My research online says I'll just have to send my monthly check in reports to the state I got it in (Arizona). I just need to be sure. I asked my public defender but he hasn't responded and he's proved himself throughout this 2 year process to be a real dummy and I don't want to rely on his word.
You should check with the IID provider, intelrock vendors and Oregon DUI counsel. AZ DUI counsel may help, too....

Why couldn't the officers get a warrant for my blood draw after arresting me for DUI?
I was arrested for DUI, my car was not impounded, the officers pulled my car into a bank parking lot, and I failed the sobriety test, I was arrested and refused the breathalyser, the officers tried to get a warrant for a blood draw but couldn't, I was released a little while after. Why couldn't the police get a warrant for a blood draw?
The issue is state specific and you need to talk to your criminal law attorney in Arizona. In Washington, for example,...
