A DUI attorney in Phoenix is working hard to change part of the state's current DUI laws.
Multiple changes will be enacted by Senate Bill 1200, which will be enacted on Dec. 31, 2011. One of the most significant changes is in regards to the interlock ignition system that is placed in vehicles of DUI offenders. The amendment would change the mandatory period of one year for first time offenders to just six months.
In addition, attorney Clifford Girard wants to eradicate the current portion of the law that denies some DUI offenders the right to request a jury trial. He wants to open this option up to all DUI offenders in the future. Speaking before state legislators, Girard added that: "I believe that the right to a jury trial is a God-given right".
