Penalties Of A DUI In Arizona

Depending on the specific circumstances of your arrest, you could face a variety of consequences if you are convicted. It’s important to note that you can be charged with a DUI even if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is below the legal limit of .08 if you show signs of impairment. 

  • A first-time DUI in Arizona carries penalties that could include lost driving privileges, mandatory alcohol and drug screening/education/treatment, license suspension for 90 days or more, between 1 and 6 months in jail, fines and surcharges totaling of $2,500 or more, a mandatory ignition interlock device installed at your own expense, mandatory community service, and more. 
  • An extreme first-time DUI offense (with a BAC of 0.15 or higher) carries penalties of at least 30 days in jail or more with no eligibility for probation, a fine of $2,500 or more, as well as the rest of the penalties for a normal DUI. 
  • An aggravated DUI, which is a second or third offense within 84 months, while on a suspended or revoked license, or while a person under 15 is in the vehicle carries penalties of jail time for up to two years and license revoked for a full year, as well as the rest of the penalties for a normal DUI. 

If your DUI led to property damage, injuries, or another person’s death, the DUI could be elevated to a felony charge, and you could face additional civil and criminal charges and penalties. 

You could lose your job, and be evicted from your housing; it will likely be more difficult to find employment and qualify for housing in the future with this on your record. Your close relationships could be negatively affected. You could lose custody rights. Your immigration eligibility could be jeapordized and you could even be deported, if you are a noncitizen. 

Because the stakes are so high – it’s not overstating it to say that how the rest of your life unfolds is on the line – the quality of legal representation you have matters. Our Tucson DUI lawyer will explain what the charges against you mean so you can be prepared and give you honest, reliable legal guidance to fight the charges and get them either dismissed or the penalties significantly reduced, if possible. 

Possible Defenses

These consequences can seem daunting, and you may feel completely overwhelmed and hopeless, but it’s not true that you don’t have a chance against the State – you do! Many aspects of your arrest can be investigated and explored for flaws. Alatorre Law will look to see if there were improper police procedures followed or faulty testing that occurred. There may also be flaws with other aspects of the prosecution’s case against you. We know what mistakes to look for that may invalidate the charges or give you a better chance at avoiding conviction.

I was accused/cited for DUI so I hired Javier Alatorre to defend me (I was under the legal BAC limit). When I first spoke to Javier, he treated me like a person and never made me like a criminal so I felt very comfortable with him. He was always available to discuss this case even though it dragged on for over 3 years (COVID). The end result was that he got my cased dismissed. I couldn't ask for anything better. I highly recommend Javier.

Attorney Javier Alatorre is very attentive, personable, and responds timely to inquiries. His confidence and knowledge of the judicial process is commendable and very reassuring. His understanding of a client's concerns and worries is notable and very much appreciated. My case is ongoing, but thus far, attorney Alatorre has proven to be very responsible, available, and invested in serving his clients.

Even though my case was in Bull Head City. I am more than glad I got with Javier. Im the type of person that don’t trust anyone. Believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see. Thats my motto. After a week of talking to every lawyer through out AZ I liked Javier the best. And was extremely glad I trusted my instincts. I love to gamble but not with my life. Trust me. Just call him

Javier helped me out not once, but twice in an exceptional manner. Javier was always on time and one step ahead of the process. He was also extremely courteous to the courtroom employees and could navigate around situations at ease. Not to mention he had pin point precision in examining details in both cases. Both outcomes in the two cases I had him for were more than advantageous. I highly recommend Javier for your next case!
