PHOENIX -- Officials with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office said Friday that a man deported at least twice from the U.S. has been sentenced to over 15 years in prison for kidnapping.
Carlos Estrada-Marroquin, 51, has been sentenced to 15.75 years in prison after being found guilty of kidnapping and extortion charges.
According to a County Attorney's Office news release, in October, 2008, a woman contacted the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Human Smuggling Unit and said her ex-boyfriend was being held hostage by coyotes demanding $1,200.
The caller said he knew where the woman lived and if the ransom was not paid the woman’s daughter would be kidnapped.
Sheriff’s detectives set up a sting and as a result Estrada-Marroquin was arrested. A jury convicted him in April and he was sentenced on July 10.
Officials said Estrada-Marroquin has been deported at least twice to Guatemala and he has two prior felony convictions for DUI.
County Attorney Andrew Thomas said, “Violent human smugglers threaten both citizens and illegal immigrants. The entire community is endangered by the actions of those involved in the human smuggling trade.”
My girlfriend and I were in an accident some months back. She was driving and was injured from the accident. She's hired a lawyer but the other woman's insurance only covers up to $25,000 while her injuries are basically permanent and will most likely require surgery later on.
My insurance company is saying that her uninsured motorist coverage should add to what she is already receiving while her insurance company is saying that mine should kick in instead.
So, my question is should mine kick in or should hers? If it's mine then it would follow the car, if it's hers then it would follow the person.
Also, she was going to be without health insurance for a couple of weeks and this happened during that time.
In the state of Arizona, how long does the state attorney have to go to trial before having to drop charges?
the charges are for a minor DUI

What do the lawyers at someplace like Traffic Law Center do that I couldn’t do myself by going to court?
It seems like I should be able to go to my court date and do whatever it is that they do. It certainly would save money. Or I could slow down.
I am sure that they are smart individuals, and I do not doubt that it is worth the money, it just seems like they never fail to get it amended to a non moving violation. There must be something that they do. Should I just go to the court date anyway as a spectator and see what goes on?
I'd love a website link on statistics if anyone has it. All I can find are fatality stats.
Maybe I've just been in the wrong place at the wrong time lately, but I can't seem to go anywhere at anytime (like 10 at night the other evening), without hitting accident traffic. And bad ones at that! I've lived here all my life, and I feel like I can't even go out to a restaurant anymore without seeing a wreck off to the shoulder!
Does anyone else feel this way?
On four lane highway with turning lane doing 35 and guy attemps to cross 2 lanes where my vision and his was obstructed by inner lane of traffic that was stopped. I did not get to brake.... car totaled, arm bruised from bag, but walked away with no blood nor broken bones.... whiplash, of course, and soft tissue. Outside of medical bills (e.g. $4k for PT), what can one expect in GA for a settlement for pain and suffering which was a year of muscular discomfort?
