    Default Aggravated DUI Plea Bargain with a Lazy Public Defender

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Arizona

    My husband received an aggravated DUI in 12/2008. They are giving him Pleas of 7 years and now the new one is 4.5years. He has no prior DUI cases but does have prior DOC record. His public defender does not put forth any effort in this case! He does not return emails, phone calls or follow up to meet with my husband. He is in County Jail here and has not been transported for the last two court hearings.

    IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN FILE TO HAVE THE COURT PROCEEDINGS DELAYED AND/OR STARTED OVER BECAUSE OF THIS???

    How is the PD lazy?

    Sounds more like your Public Defender is lazy. If he's not doing the job, hire one. Is getting out of 4.5 years worth hiring someone who will actually work?

    Unfortunately, you are getting what you pay for.

    Try to find a lawyer who has a free consutation so they can give you an idea of the sentence and what type of plea they can work out. Why is the charge a Aggravated Dui and not a dui.Ariziona in general seems strict on dwis,even Charles Barkley had to spend time in Jail. If he has a prior felony there might be an additional amount of jail time requried.

    We have no clue why. You haven't provided us with any details of the arrest. Was the arrest out of a crash. Was someone else injured? Are there prior convictions? Lay out the case and someone may have some insight.
