About Basic DUI
A DUI case in Phoenix usually has two different citations (A1 & A2 charges). A person violates the A1 charge by driving or being in control of a motor vehicle while impaired. The second charge is using actual drugs or alcohol or a combination. A DUI conviction in or around Phoenix results in eight moving points on one’s driving record.
A first-offense DUI is a Class 1 misdemeanor with a minimum jail requirement of one to ten days. Fines of $250 – $2,500 plus surcharges, up to five years of probation, and license suspension may also apply.
About Extreme DUI in Phoenix
An extreme DUI in Arizona is a more serious version of a second offense DUI. This occurs when someone’s BAC is over the statutory limit of .15 (almost double the legal limit). Penalties for an extreme DUI include a minimum mandatory jail sentence of 30 days and a fine of $500 – $2,500 plus surcharges. Most individuals will also have to install and maintain a vehicle interlock device for a year before their driver’s license is fully restored.
About Super Extreme DUI
In Arizona, a super extreme DUI occurs when an individual has a blood alcohol concentration over .20. This requires an extended period of an ignition interlock device – up to 18 months – and a minimum jail sentence of 45 days.
