DUI Penalties

Arizona has VERY strict DUI laws and extremely harsh penalties associated with a DUI conviction. In fact, Arizona has some of the toughest DUI laws in the country.

  1. Fines, Fees, and Assessments. DUI's are expensive, resulting in financial assessments exceeding $3,000.00.
  2. Suspension, Revocation, or Cancellation of your driving privileges.
  3. Probation.
  4. Counseling, treatment and other court-ordered programming, which you will be expected to pay for.
  5. A criminal conviction on your record.
  6. Mandatory jail or prison.

These penalties represent just some of the negative and life altering ramifications from a DUI conviction. 

Challenging a DUI charge

Despite the strict DUI laws, there are ways to fight a DUI in Arizona:

  • Was the traffic stop illegal?
  • Was there sufficient probable cause to make an arrest?
  • Was there a violation of your rights?
  • Was there a valid search warrant for your blood?
  • Does the arresting officer have credibility or competency issues?

These are the types of questions you need an experienced, competent attorney to help you answer. Call Donielle for a free DUI evaluation.
