Driving Under the Influence: Arizona DUI Defense


There are three levels of DUI in Arizona: (1) Standard DUI, (2) Extreme DUI and (3) Aggravated DUI.Standard DUI The first is driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) over .08 but under .150. This carries the maximum of six (6) months in jail and a minimum of 10 days in jail, alcohol screening, and up to $1,250.00 in fines.

  • Extreme DUI With a BAC of over .150, you face potentially no less than 30 days in jail and $2,500.00 in fines. These penalties all increase if you have had a prior DUI within 84 months.
  • Aggravated DUI Aggravated DUI occurs when you are driving on a suspended, revoked or cancelled license – or when it is your 3rd DUI within 84 months.

This subjects you to prison time, and you are potentially held in an Arizona Department of Corrections‘ facility for up to 2 years. This is just a brief summary of the potential penalties you face if arrested for DUI in Arizona. if you are facing any of these charges, do not make a second mistake and try and go it alone, you should at least speak with an attorney who handles DUI matters.
