State v. Mr. N (DMC No. 504)

CONVICTION REVERSED | VEHICULAR AGGRAVATED ASSAULT

State v. Mr. N. (DMC No. 504) (Maricopa County Superior Court No. 9408459): Mr. N. was involved in a DUI accident in which the victim suffered several broken bones. On the day of trial with Court-appointed counsel, he was talked into taking a plea agreement to 5 years in prison. After his conviction, his wife hired us to look into the evidence. We discovered there was a very strong Motion to Suppress his blood alcohol concentration, which was not argued by trial counsel. After we filed our Post-Conviction Relief Petition, a hearing was held in which his court-appointed counsel admitted he did not understand the law. The conviction was reversed and the State then extended an offer to a plea with time served. Mr. N. did not have to return to prison, and wound up serving only a little over 1 year in custody.
