Understand concepts that apply to your criminal justice case

In our previous blog post, we discussed the differences between a trial jury and a grand jury. Understanding what each jury is responsible for is one key bit of knowledge that you should have if you are facing felony charges. There are several other things that you should be aware of if you are building a defense. We can help you as you navigate your way through the criminal justice system.

What types of juries have roles in the criminal justice system?

There are some instances in which a person who is facing criminal charges might hear about a jury. In the criminal justice system, there are two types of juries -- the grand jury and the trial jury. While both of these juries are very important to the criminal justice system, they both serve very different purposes.

What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?

Last week, our blog post was about how shoplifting can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony in Arizona. That fact brings up the important point about what differences are present between misdemeanors and felonies. If you are facing criminal charges, it is critical that you know the difference and how they can affect your case.

Shoplifting charges can be misdemeanors or felonies

Shoplifting is a crime that can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony depending on the value of the goods that are taken from a merchant. Arizona law sets forth some very specific points regarding shoplifting that lay out the definition, the lawful actions of the merchant and the types of punishments that might occur upon a conviction.

Know your rights when you are accused of drugged driving

Since the Arizona Supreme Court issued the ruling regarding medical marijuana cardholders and DUIs that we discussed last week, an important point has been brought to mind. That point is that it is possible to face criminal charges for driving under the influence of drugs. People largely associated a DUI with only alcohol, but that is a misconception. If you have been charged with a DUI because of alleged drugged driving, we can help you learn your options.
