Fighting a DUI in Phoenix, Arizona
Driving under the influence in Phoenix, AZ is a serious charge that can carry a wide range of punishments upon conviction. The consequences of a DUI are often impacted by your blood alcohol concentration (BAC), prior criminal history, the presence of minors in your vehicle, and whether you were in an accident at the time of your arrest.
If you are facing drunk driving charges, you need a seasoned criminal defense attorney on your side who will protect your interests and fight aggressively on your behalf.
Aggravated DUI Charges in Phoenix
If you have been caught with a BAC of .08% or higher in Arizona, you can be charged with driving under the influence. However, there are some circumstances in which you may be charged with an aggravated DUI.
This elevated form of a DUI is not based on BAC but is instead charged for the following reasons:
- The intoxicated driver was operating a vehicle on a revoked or suspended license
- The driver caused an accident that resulted in serious property damage, bodily injury, or death
- The driver has a criminal history
- The driver has been charged with over three DUIs in the past seven years
- The driver had a minor in the vehicle under the age of 15 at the time of his or her arrest
In Arizona, an aggravated DUI is a federal offense that can have serious penalties for the offender if convicted. At a minimum, a person convicted of a DUI may face hefty fines, community services, and probation. Suspension or revocation of a driver’s license is also common. In some cases, an offender may face mandatory alcohol awareness classes and possibly time in state prison.
