DUI Case Results

In Arizona, DUIs are a common offense – there were nearly 30,000 DUI arrests in 2013 alone. But although DUIs are common, they still hold severe penalties. First-time DUIs can include 10 days to six months in jail, license suspension, probation, ignition interlock installation, and over $3,000 in fines and surcharges.
