If a law enforcement officer suspects you of driving under the influence, he or she has the right to pull you over and test your BAC level.

This will typically be done through a field sobriety test, breath test or blood test. If your BAC is .08 or more, you will likely be arrested, taken into police custody, and charged for DUI.

The following is a list of what Arizona laws consider driving under the influence:

DUI Process Defined

All Arizona DUI cases will result in two separate legal processes: a criminal case and an administrative hearing with the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (MVD).

MVD Hearings

MVD administrative hearings concern only your driving privileges and are separate from criminal proceedings. MVD hearings do not address whether you are guilty of committing the criminal act of driving under the influence, and will not result in any other penalties aside from driver's license suspension. After a DUI arrest, you must request an MVD hearing within 15 days or face an automatic license suspension.

Criminal Case

The DUI process will also involve proceedings in a criminal court, where you will be charged for violating an Arizona law.

Criminal proceedings will concerns whether you are guilty or innocent of the charge at hand and will determine which criminal penalties you will face. In some cases, you may also be able to reach agreements to reduce or dismiss charges / penalties.

Having an attorney by your side at all point during the DUI process is crucial. At Knowles Law Firm, PLC, we represent clients during both MVD hearings and criminal proceedings, and we fight aggressively on their behalves.
