Legal Answers
72 Questions Answered
Q. What motion do I file to dismiss charges?
A: Based on your question, I cannot tell whether you have a pending charge or a conviction for DUI from 2012. If it is a pending charge, then there is likely an active warrant for your arrest and you will need to get the warrant quashed and handle the DUI case before the driver license hold will be removed. If it is a DUI conviction, but you have outstanding fines then you will need to pay off your fines before the license hold will be removed. However, many courts will allow a payment plan to remove the license hold. There is not a magic defense motion to dismiss. If there is no factual basis for the charges then the prosecutor should dismiss. In Arizona, you can be found guilty if the State proves that you were impaired to the slightest degree by marijuana regardless of whether you had a medical card. If it was strictly inactive metabolites, then that is a basis for dismissal as Arizona law requires there to be an active metabolite of marijuana for DUI.
Q. Is it more believable that you remember vaguely winning a prize two years ago and not remembering if you filled out tax
A: This is not a legal question. Unfortunately, an attorney won't be able to help with this question as this does not involve any issue requiring legal knowledge.
Q. I got arrested because I unfortunately decided to rest my eyes for a sec while I was parked at the gas station.
A: You should contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Peoria often draws blood so it is curious as you post blood could not be drawn. A urine test may have issues with the results. There also may be an issue as to driving or actual physical control. You should avoid posting any additional information on here as this is a public forum and anyone can view it.
