Constitutional Rights, No person shall be compelled in any criminal case to give evidence against himself, or be twice put in jeopardy for the same offense.

No person shall be compelled in any criminal case to give evidence against himself, or be twice put in jeopardy for the same offense.

Comments : You have the right to remain silent in Arizona! Period. The best way to assert your right to remain silent is to ask for a lawyer. Once you ask for a lawyer, the Arizona Police must stop asking you questions. The government must not try you twice for the same crime. However, in AZ, after a DUI arrest there will be two proceedings against you... one is civil and one is criminal. The Arizona MVD, or the Motor Vehicle Division of the Department of Transportation, will try to suspend your licence. Regardless of their success, the prosecutor will still pursue charges in criminal court.
