Aggravated DUI

Phoenix Aggravated DUI Lawyer

Have You Been Arrested for Felony DUI in Phoenix?

You will be arrested and charged with a DUI if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08% or higher, however, depending on the circumstances of the arrest, you may be charged with an aggravated DUI, which is a much more serious offense.

It is vital that you contact an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney if you have been charged with this type of criminal offense. A lawyer who has successfully defended clients charged with aggravated DUI and has the skills, knowledge, and experience to fight your charges can greatly increase the chances of winning your case and getting your charges dismissed.

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 license suspension.

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.
