Unlawful flight from law enforcement is a class five felony in Arizona and is prosecuted very aggressively by the county attorney’s office.

Unlawful Flight Defense Lawyer

Most Phoenix unlawful flight cases are best defended by challenging whether the defendant was acting willfully. There are several scenarios where a person having no intent to elude may not immediately pull over for the police:

The driver may be unaware that the police are behind them because they are listening to loud music The driver might believe the officer is attempting to stop another vehicle The driver may want to wait until they reach a well-lit area before the pulling over at night

Unfortunately, many police officers take it personally if you don’t pull over fast enough for them and will add felony flight charges even when there was never any intent to avoid the police. Phoenix unlawful flight attorney Joshua S. Davidson will perform a comprehensive defense investigation of your unlawful flight case and obtain statements from any witnesses who may have seen the incident. Sometimes newer vehicles have “black boxes” that store downloadable information regarding the movements of the vehicle that can also help dispel false allegations of eluding the police.
