How Charges Are Enhanced to "Aggravated"
It is illegal to drive or operate a vehicle in Arizona if your BAC is 0.08%
or higher. Any person who violates this law will be arrested and charged
with DUI. There are, however, certain circumstances that could enhance
your criminal charges to aggravated DUI. Your criminal charges may be
enhanced to an aggravated DUI if the following is true:
Aggravated DUI is
charged as a class 4 felony offense, which means that you will face extensive legal repercussions upon conviction.
The penalties that are associated with a crime of this nature are severe
and will have serious consequences that can be felt for years to come.
A conviction can bring with it the possibility of incarceration of two
years or more, a maximum monetary fine of $150,000 and the possibility
of a three year
In the state of Arizona, the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) may even try
to revoke your license completely which is much more serious that a suspension.
It can also include the possibility of experiencing vehicle forfeiture.
Should the crime be elevated to a class 6 felony, the penalties will be
similarly elevated with incarceration being more probable whereas the
class 4 felony will likely include probation in lieu of the imprisonment sentence.
Hard-Hitting Criminal Defense You Can Count On
It is important to remember that just because you have been criminally
charged does not mean that you have been convicted. There are steps that
you can take to defend your rights and there are defenses that can be
utilized to help protect yourself against criminal penalties. For example,
what if you were subjected to an unlawful police stop? While most people
don't realize, the truth is that not every traffic stop is lawful.
If there was not probable cause to pull you over, the validity of the
entire arrest can be put into question.
