All Muck Is Local: Careful What You Blog For
In the Arizona legislature, one DUI on your record is fine. But two is really pushing things. But the woes have returned now that her arraignment date approaches. In Arizona, a DUI is generally treated as a misdemeanor and judges usually shorten the 30-day sentence down to 10 days. However, Groe's case is compounded by the fact that she lied to the officer about having a valid driver's license. In actuality, her license had been revoked due to an outstanding ticket in California. This bumps her charge up to a felony. In addition, it certainly won't help her case that Groe had already been arrested for a DUI in 1999 (also in California).
