Casa Grande Criminal Defense Lawyer

Work With a Board Certified Criminal Defense Attorney

If you have driven the Interstate 10 between Tucson and Phoenix, then you have driven through Casa Grande, a city in Pinal County which is home to about 55,000 residents. Although Casa Grande was historically an agricultural town, it has grown in recent years and as such, has seen a growth in the service industry – restaurants, gas stations, and shopping centers, to keep up with the population increase.

Casa Grande has its own police department – Casa Grande Police, and if you have been cited for any type of criminal or DUI violation, you will likely be appearing in the Casa Grande Municipal Court (for misdemeanors) or the Pinal County Superior Court (for felonies). In recent years, the Casa Grande Police Department has implemented a more data driven approach to addressing high crime ‘hot spots’ throughout the city with hopes that targeting specific zones, they would be able to achieve a decrease in overall crime in the city. According to a 2016 article on pinalcentral.com, local law enforcement had seen an increase in burglaries and thefts in a particular area, so the department implemented a process to begin targeting that zone with increased patrols. While the results of this more data focused policing were not available, many other agencies have seen significant decreases in crime rates utilizing these types of policing strategies. We receive a fair share of criminal and DUI cases out of Casa Grande and some common cases we have seen include, DUI, Domestic Violence, Aggravated Assault, Theft and Disorderly Conduct.

Casa Grande DUI Lawyer - Work With a Board Certified Specialist

Were you arrested for DUI in Casa Grande? If so, you may have been asked to perform field sobriety tests as well as submit to breath & blood tests in order to establish your degree of intoxication. If a person’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is above the legal limit, the test results are used by the prosecution as evidence against you in your case. There are many potential weaknesses that can be identified in test findings, such as a failure to use proper testing procedures, contamination of samples, the use of equipment that wasn’t properly maintained, faulty testing devices, or tests being conducted by an untrained or unqualified individual. A Casa Grande DUI attorney can review the evidence in your case, including the blood and/or breath test results, to determine the legitimacy of the results and identify potential weaknesses in the case. If the testing can be discredited, your charges may be reduced, or your case possibly dismissed. If you are facing DUI charges, an experienced DUI lawyer will know how to identify any potential weaknesses in your case and pursue the best course of action in resolving your case.
