Q. What can I do to get charges lowered on forgery case?
A: It's not clear why you a fake to get through the airport, but I wouldn't go into any detail here about the alleged crime. If this is your first offense, you will likely have an automatic plea to a reduced charge and something less than a class 4 felony. If you have priors or are not willing to accept probation and feel you are innocent, you should hire somebody if you can afford it.

Q. How long does someone have to file assault charges after the incident occurs?
A: Assuming you mean criminal charges, it would depend if it was a felony or misdemeanor. The statute of limitations on a misdemeanor is one year; the statute on a felony is 7 years. If there was a weapon involved or serious injury it would be filed as a felony; however, usually if the police are not involved fairly soon after the incident charges will not be filed.

Q. What could I do to avoid losing my Secured Appearance Bond and/or going to jail if I were to get cited for a DUI in AZ?
A: As long as you follow release conditions, you should not lose your secured appearance bond. If you were out on release for some other offense and commit a new offense, you may lose your bond, but it is more likely that either nothing will come of it or you will have a change in your release conditions. I am not sure I completely understand your first question. Regarding the second question, you should speak with your lawyer. A deal like that should only have been made with the help of your attorney. I am sorry I cannot be of more assistance, but the possibilities are endless. You may be fine. They may re-instate prosecution. It really depends.
