Possible Penalties for DUI
Driving under the influence is a commonly committed crime in the state of Arizona. However, that doesn’t mean that DUI charges should be taken lightly. Depending on your previous offenses, your blood alcohol concentration, and whether you were driving on a suspended license, the penalties you may face could involve hefty fines, license revocation, and even jail time.
First-Offense DUI: Those convicted of a first-offense DUI will be jailed for at least 10 consecutive days and fined at least $1,250. In addition, offenders are required to undergo alcohol education or treatment, equip their vehicles with certified ignition interlock devices, and possibly perform community service.
Subsequent Offenses: Any offenders who commit additional DUIs will face at least 90 days of jail time, fines of at least $3,000, and have their licenses revoked for 12 months. Those who have been charged with multiple DUIs will also have to complete alcohol education or treatment, add a certified ignition interlock device to any vehicles, and possibly perform community service.
Extreme DUI: An extreme DUI charge may be dealt if an individual is pulled over with a blood alcohol concentration of .15% or higher. Depending on whether this is your first extreme DUI, you may face fines of up to $3,250, license revocation, up to 120 days in jail, and other penalties.
Aggravated DUI: A conviction of this nature can result in a prison sentence of up to two years, license revocation, and other life-altering penalties. If you received a third DUI charge in 84 months, refused to submit to a BADC test while under an ignition interlock device requirement, drove under the influence with a child under 15 in the car, or committed a DUI while holding a suspended or revoked license, you may be charged with an aggravated DUI.
