VEHICULAR AGGRAVATED ASSAULT DANGEROUS (.219 BAC) WRONG WAY COLLISION on LOOP 101 with 2 VEHICLES (Involving Multiple Surgeries) REDUCED to AGGRAVATED ASSAULT NON DANGEROUS/ENDANGERMENT with PROBATION and 3.5 YEARS in PRISON – State v. Mr. A. (DMC No. 9366) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2009-007599): Mr. A. had been drinking heavily and got onto the Loop 101 heading the wrong direction. He ultimately struck two other vehicles which resulted in three separate individuals being injured. Two of them required multiple surgeries, and one person had part of their finger amputated. Although Mr. A. was originally facing 15 to 45 years in prison, we were able to enroll him in a rehab program and have him change his lifestyle. We also showed the court that Mr. A. had changed the direction of his life and had become a more religious man who had renewed family support. Ultimately, he was sentenced to only 3.5 years in prison, and was released after 2 years and 7 months with time off for good behavior. He is now doing very well.
