as much as $2,500 with other fees and surcharges running more than $10,000 per DUI for the second violation or more.” Incidents involving impaired drivers are lower in the

SanTan Sun area compared to neighboring jurisdictions, due primarily to demographics, according to Dossey. Other factors, such as the time of year and intensity of monitoring activities, also affect the citation rate for this offense. “Chandler does not have as many DUIs as Tempe because

ASU is located in Tempe,” Dossey says. “The number of DUI citations written in each city or town in Maricopa County fluc- tuates because of the holidays, focus of the local police depart- ment and availability of federal dollars for DUI enforcement.”

Legal assistance Every DUI situation is unique, and having a lawyer who spe-

cializes in this area of the law can impact a case’s outcome. Dossey, a graduate of Brown University and ASU and member of the State Bar of Arizona since 1975, has been concentrating on criminal and DUI law for the past four years and empha- sizes the importance of finding qualified representation. “An experienced attorney can always provide better legal

advice and representation in the area of the law in which the attorney is experienced,” says Dossey. “Attorneys who practice DUI and criminal law regularly are up to date on changes in the laws, they are familiar with the court per- sonnel and procedures involved in those areas and they should be able to advise a client in regard to what is best for the client. That includes risks of conviction, chances of win- ning a case and whether a plea offer is good or bad. This is the type of information a client needs in order to make the best decision for his or her circumstances. In many instances that decision can be life-changing, and should only be made based upon the advice of competent and experienced legal counsel.”

Community The professional company 4 Peaks Racing will handle

the 5k portion of the 5th annual ICAN SanTan Sun Family Fun Run & 5k fundraiser on Sat., April 14 at Tumbleweed Park in Chandler. The company will provide chips and handle timed race results for the 3.1-mile race along the Paseo Trail. A family-friendly walk or run around Tumbleweed Park

will also be offered for children, adults and even dogs. “Area runners really encouraged us to get more seri-

ous about the 5k element, so we are kicking it up sev- eral notches this year,” explains Laurie Fagen, publisher of the SanTan Sun News, a co-sponsor of the annual event. “But families can still bring the kids and pets and have a great time as well.” New this year is a special dry-wick running T-shirt

that is included with all the pre-registered 5k runners, and will be an optional purchase for $15 for fun run and other attendees. In addition, sponsors are sought to provide health

and other information at tables under the McDowell Mountain Pavilion. “Our goal is to raise at least $6,000 for ICAN, which is

a very worthy 501(c)(3) Chandler nonprofit that pro- vides terrific out of school time, research-based pro- grams for youth at risk right here in our city. Any business that wants to sponsor food, goodie bags or pro- vide information at a table just means more money to help ICAN help kids ages 5 to 18 years old learn to be productive, self-confident and responsible citizens.” Sponsored by the SanTan Sun News, the City of Chandler, CoBiz Financial and other local businesses,
