What your eyesight has to do with possible DUI charges

As a conscientious driver, you're likely already aware that if you drink alcohol then get behind the wheel of a car to drive, you are taking a risk. Arizona law and other state laws prohibit operation of motor vehicles when the alcohol in your bloodstream exceeds certain limits. In most states, that limit is .08 percent. Your blood alcohol content may not be the only factor that impacts your situation if a police officer pulls you over on suspicion of drunk driving.

How much is too much when it comes to drinking?

It's not an uncommon scene in Arizona. Someone goes to a dinner or a party and has a little to drink; just a beer or a glass of wine. They insist they're fine to drive once the party ends, and successfully make it home. But were they really fine? Exactly how much is too much when it comes to drinking and driving?

False rape allegations and justice served

No matter the angle of debate or persons involved, rape is a complex and sensitive topic. Given today's issues, it is evident that this type of crime is hardly a problem of the past.

These investigations are crucial in that a defendant's personal and professional life, well being and reputation are all on the line for an incident that never actually happened. 

Know your rights before police stop you on the road
