Charged with Driving Under the Influence? Call Us Now
After you or a member of your family has been charged with driving under the influence, you may not know where to turn for legal help. If this is your first offense, you may be more confused than ever, as the police and prosecutors keep you in the dark about your legal rights. Somehow, the Miranda warning just didn't explain everything you need to know, did it?
Different levels of DUI
The legal blood alcohol content in Arizona is .08. Drivers with a BAC of .015 can be charged with extreme DUI and a BAC of 0.20 can now result in a charge of super extreme DUI. Both carry mandatory jail sentences.
Being charged with the offense of driving under the influence is taken very seriously by the State of Arizona and local District Attorneys. At their worst, a conviction on DUI charges can result in jail time, heavy fines, and losing your driver's license for an extended period of time. If you have been charged multiple times over the past few years, you can face felony charges for aggravated DUI and can face a mandatory prison sentence.
