If you are under investigation for, or have been charged with, any Arizona vehicular crime, you must treat the allegations very seriously, as they usually carry the potential for a lengthy prison sentence. It is critical to retain an experienced Arizona criminal defense lawyer that has a solid understanding of the dynamics involved in the investigation, prosecution, and defense of vehicle crimes. Many cases eventually turn on the ability of the defense to break down the State's evidence with respect to legal issues involving accident reconstruction, causation, and chemical testing of blood and breath samples for alcohol and drug concentrations.
A car accident can result in serious criminal charges if alcohol or drugs are involved and if someone was injured or killed. If a driver leaves the scene of the accident, additional charges can be brought as well. Under Arizona criminal law, vehicular assaults and manslaughter are often viewed as seriously as shooting or killing someone with a handgun.
Although an incident of this sort can be viewed as an 'accident,' Arizona law allows for the prosecution of an individual based on reckless conduct. What this means is that even though there is nothing intentional about an accident, a negligent driver can still be convicted and sent to prison.
Prosecutors are free in deciding what offense to charge in any given case. Therefore, wide disparities occur in connection with the outcome of these cases. One defendant may receive a sentence of 10 or 20 years in prison while another receives probation for similar conduct.
Our Arizona criminal law attorneys have years of experience successfully defending vehicular homicide cases, including: Negligent Homicide, Manslaughter, and Second Degree Murder.
Our criminal defense lawyers also have years of experience successfully defending individuals accused of other Arizona vehicular crimes which do not result in death. These include: Aggravated Assault, Endangerment, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, Reckless Driving, and Aggressive Driving.
