While the vast majority of DUIs in Arizona are charges relating to people pulled over with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level over 0.08 for the first time and without any further legal complications, there are some Arizona DUI designations that apply to those who have been charged with DUIs before, or who are driving on a suspended license. 

 


Felony DUI and Aggravated DUI in Arizona are the Same Things

A felony DUI in Arizona is also sometimes referred to as an aggravated DUI, and that’s because it typically means the driver has three or more DUI charges at the time of the arrest. In other cases, the driver may have been charged with an aggravated DUI because s/he was driving under the influence while his or her license was already suspended or revoked as the result of some other prior charge. 


Some of the Reasons Why You May Be Charged with a Felony DUI in Arizona

You may be charged with a felony DUI if you are driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and you are also: 

  • Driving on a suspended or revoked license 
  • Driving on a canceled license
  • You have been charged with three or more DUIs in the last seven years
  • Driving with a passenger(s) under the age of 15 in the vehicle 
  • Refusing to submit to the BAC test when an ignition interlock device is installed in your vehicle

WHAT OUR CLIENTs SAY

“I was totally impressed and grateful for the expertise and successful case Arja handled for me. She answered my calls immediately and saved me a lot of professional and personal heartache. Arja did a great job refuting the State’s evidence and convinced the Prosecutor that my chewing tobacco was a major issue in the case that the officer did not check.”
