State v. DH
Charges: Possession of Marijuana, Class 6 felony; Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, a Class 6 Felony, two counts of DUI.
Date: March 24, 2017
Outcome: REDUCED to Possession of Marijuana, a Class 1 misdemeanor, and one count of DUI misdemeanor, other counts dismissed, no jail imposed.
Description: Maricopa County Superior Court: Client DH was stopped in his vehicle after making alleged traffic violations. The officer conducted a DUI investigation and found a useable amount of marijuana and a scale. DH’s recorded blood alcohol content was .109. DH had two prior DUI convictions in the past.

Through extensive knowledge of the law, Mr. Goebel alerted the State to significant legal issues in their case.  The State agreed to reduce the charge to two Class 1 misdemeanors and DH avoided jail time when Mr. Goebel convinced the Judge to give DH credit for the several hours he served after his arrest.
