Extreme DUI Can Mean Extreme Penalties
Prosecutors in Arizona now have the option of charging drivers with extreme DUI for a blood alcohol content (BAC) above 0.15 and super extreme DUI if their BAC exceeds 0.20. Either charge can lead to a misdemeanor criminal conviction. Prosecutors must be able to show that your BAC was sufficient for the charges within two hours of driving or "being in control" of a motor vehicle.

Extreme and super extreme DUI charges mean mandatory jail time
The laws about extreme DUI and super extreme DUI call for harsher penalties than the usual .08 DUI. A conviction for extreme DUI results in a mandatory 30 day jail sentence and heavier fines. A conviction for super extreme DUI results in a mandatory 45 days in jail, with no possibility for a suspended sentence. The charges are serious and the prosecutors don't relent.
If you have been charged with either super extreme or extreme DUI, you need experienced, aggressive defense representation that is equal to the legal challenge. If your charges include criminal offenses relating to a DUI accident, you are possibly looking at a felony conviction that can mean a lengthy prison sentence.
