DUI - Suspension Change notice -ADOT, what does it mean ?
I was stopped by tempe police and arrested for DUI and made to take the intoxicolometer breathelizer, the results came in as 0.076 and 0.065. I was charged for DUI - driving with slightest impariement. The police officer writting my charges, told me "the good news is that my licence is not suspended", and i was not served any administrative hearing paper. However, today in the mail I received a suspension change notice by ADOT that reads as: The order of suspension/affidavit served by a law enforcement agency on "date of arrest" for Admin Per Dr has been Rejeced - the Affidavit you were served was submitted untimely. What does this mean? I have already requested an admin hearing, do I still need to attend This or not? My dui case is still pending on ore-trial (but most likely will be dropped by the prosecutor pretrial). Thanks
The reason it was rejected is because the result was below a .08. That means it is done and over and you do not need to...
When you receive an Admin Per Se how do you know what penalties are at stake for a 1st offense DUI ARS 28-1381?
How is it determined whether or not to modify a 1st offense DUI, ARS 28-1381, to an extreme DUI when amphetamines are involved? Can a first time DUI be upgraded to a felony for any reason? If so, under what circumstances? My friend was involved in a MVA & collided with a wall. He was subsequently admitted to an Emergency Dept at a local hospital where it was presumed that he was suicidal. Upon admission, he tested positive for amphetamines. My friend was issued an Admin Per Se. The document shows that he was charged with ARS 28-1381, that he submitted to a blood test, & that the officer found meth pipes in his vehicle. (He was carrying bags that were packed by another person.) He denies any knowledge of these pipes and suspects that she may have been trying to set him up by packing these items in with his other stuff. My concern is that since it may take up to 6 months for blood results to be forwarded back to the police dept. that the charge may later be upgraded to a felony. Since he is on Disability this could prove problematic as, if convicted of a felony, I believe that he could lose his disability entitlement. He can't afford an attorney. Thank you.
If he cannot afford an attorney, the public defender will be appointed. Extreme DUI is only when alcohol levels are 0....
Will I be able to get an IL drivers license if I have a DUI from Arizona?
In mid 2010 I was pulled over and charged with a DUI (first and only) in Scottsdale, AZ. I pleaded guilty (misdemeanor) in Aug. 2011 and satisfied all AZ court requirements (fines, 24 hours in jail, classes, etc.). Additionally, I have satisfied ALL BUT ONE of the AZ D.O.T requirements (interlock device). Reason being, I moved to Chicago, IL in Sept. 2011 (where I have lived for the last 6 years now) and did not physically have a car to attach an interlock device to (I still do not!) I never had a reason to change my ID as my AZ license does not expire until 2048 and there was no reason for me to believe otherwise. Here we are, 6 years later, and I am just finding out I may not be able to get an IL driver's license because my AZ license is still listed as "revoked." Within the past 6 year, I have had ZERO traffic violations and thus, my record is clean and clear. I have been told that the only way for me to get approved by the state of IL is by satisfying the AZ D.O.T. HOWEVER, I physically am unable to due to the fact that I do not own a car! Why am I STILL being reprimanded in my 30's for something that happened in my mid 20's??
You are being "reprimanded" because you did not comply with the Arizona MVD requirements to get your license back....
Will there be consequences if I fail only the first pretrial tasc drug test?
I'm being charged with three f2 narcotic and dangerous narcotic related charges. The pretrial services put me on tasc on the 20th. So I'm going to have to do a UA sometime before the end of the month, and at least one more time before my next court date. If the first test is dirty but the second is clean will i be ok?!!!?
Yes, you should be fine. What pretrial wants to see is that the numbers are going down. You have been charged with an...

BAC under 0.08, licence not suspended but charged for DUI-slightest imparement, do i need to ask for MVD hearing?
I was stopped by tempe police and arrested for DUI and made to take the intoxicolometer breathelizer, the results came in as 0.076 and 0.065. I was charged for DUI - driving with slightest impariement. The police officer writting my charges, told me "the good news is that my licence is not suspended", and i was not served any administrative hearing paper. So my question is: 1- Do i still need to schedule for DMV hearing? 2- i was given a letter stating to show up for 10 printing and biometrics before my firdt court date, is that 100% necessary or is there ways around it? Thank you
1. Your license is not automatically suspended on the spot if you are over 21 and your BAC is under .08 even if you are...
