A DUI charge should never be taken lightly. If you are facing a drunk driving conviction, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side to provide sound legal advice and represent you in court.
DUI Charges Elevated to an Aggravated DUI
Most people are familiar with a standard DUI in which a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08% or higher. In Arizona, a person can also be charged with an elevated DUI, known as an aggravated DUI. An aggravated DUI is not based on a driver’s BAC but rather on other circumstances, including the following:
- The driver has a past criminal record
- The driver has been charged with over three DUIs in the past seven years
- The driver was involved in an accident that resulted in serious bodily injury, death, or extensive property damage
- The driver was operating a vehicle with a revoked or suspended license
- The driver had a minor under the age of 15 in the vehicle at the time of his or her arrest.
In Arizona, an aggravated DUI is a felony offense and can result in a number of penalties, such as probation, community service, large fines, the suspension or revocation of the offender’s driver’s license, time spent in state prison, and mandatory alcohol awareness classes.
