Arizona DUI penalties are the nation’s toughest.

What was the Blood Alcohol Content of the driver? Was anyone injured or is DUI related homicide involved? Does the defendant have prior DUI convictions? What were the ages of those involved? These factors may influence your case but here is a brief overview of Arizona’s harsh DUI penalties:

  • First DUI offense or a BAC above .080 but below .150: A minimum of 10 days in jail. A fine of $1,800 in addition to jail costs. Drivers’ license suspension for 90 days. Substance abuse counseling. Probation for five years. A costly ignition interlock device for one year.
  • Second offense: Most likely, 90 days in jail, mandatory counseling, $3,500 in fines plus jail costs. Loss of driving privilege for at least one year. Ignition interlock device required for one year.
  • First extreme DUI (BAC between .150 and .199): At least 30 days in jail along with jail costs and a fine of $3,000. You will also lose your license for 90 days and be required to use an ignition interlock device for one year.

Conviction for Super Extreme DUI and Aggravated or Felony DUI will result in even more catastrophic penalties: months in prison; loss of vehicle; occupational restrictions; $150,000 in fines and more. Contact a Tucson drunk driving lawyer with a history of success in these high-stakes cases.
