Just when you thought that DUI charge was bad enough, you come to find out that the charge may carry additional penalties, also known as enhancements. Depending on the circumstances involved in your case, your DUI charge could end up being more serious than you might think. There’s no guarantee that you will receive the minimum mandatory punishment provided by Arizona DUI law.
Some of the factors that might carry sentencing enhancements for a DUI charge in Arizona include:
- There was a child in the car at the time of the DUI arrest
- Property damage or injury occurred as a result of DUI
- Previous DUI convictions
- A BAC over .15%
If any of these factors are present in your case, there is a good chance that you might face increased punishments if convicted of driving under the influence. While an aggravated DUI is a serious charge that can dramatically affect your future, a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer can help. I encourage anyone facing DUI, aggravated DUI or extreme DUI charges in the Phoenix metro area to at least speak with a lawyer before they appear in court or answer any questions from law enforcement officers. Don’t let a DUI ruin your future!
