Aggravated DUI Charges in Arizona
Arizona drivers caught with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher can be arrested and charged with DUI. The consequences are more severe, however, for drivers charged with an aggravated DUI.
An aggravated DUI charge is not based on BAC. Instead, DUIs are elevated to aggravated DUIs for the following reasons:
- The driver caused an accident resulting in extensive property damage, serious bodily injury or death
- A minor under the age of 15 was in the vehicle at the time of the driver’s arrest
- The driver was operating the vehicle on a suspended or revoked license
- The driver has been charged with more than three DUIs within the past seven years
- The driver has a prior criminal record
An aggravated DUI is a felony offense in Arizona. As a felony, penalties for aggravated DUI include:
- Time in state prison
- Large fines, probation, community service
- Driver’s license suspension or revocation
- Mandatory alcohol awareness classes
If you’ve been charged with an aggravated DUI, you’ll need a capable defense lawyer to obtain the best results. We’ll make every effort to give you the best defense in order to reduce your penalties and minimize the length of your sentencing.

Lessen Your Penalties
A DUI charge refers to an individual who is operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or any other mind-altering drugs. The state of Arizona has very strict and complex DUI laws to prevent individuals from driving while they are intoxicated.
The penalties for those who are operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or more can be very harsh. To avoid the most strict penalties, hire the attorney that knows how to represent you in court and make sense of your case – especially if you’re facing a felony DUI charge.
Drivers convicted of these charges in Gilbert, Scottsdale, Tempe and Mesa can face jail time, probation, fines, community service, driver’s license suspension or other blemishes on their permanent driver’s record. You may face additional penalties for charges like leaving the scene of an accident or other driving-related offenses.
