Kyrene Justice Court DUI Penalties

The punishment that you potentially face in your Kyrene Justice Court DUI case depends in large part on the Blood Alcohol Concentration, or BAC, that is alleged in your case.

All DUI's that are charged in the Kyrene Justice Court have some things in common:

  • All are Class 1 Misdemeanors. Some DUIs can be felonies, and so it is important to speak to an attorney and make sure that there is no possibility that your case can be dismissed and refiled as a felony
  • Maximum 6 months in jail
  • Maximum $2,500 fine
  • Maximum 5 years probation
  • Loss of driving privileges for some time period
  • Ignition interlock requirement for some time period
  • 8 points assessed against your driving record, which may result in additional driving privilege issues

    Regular DUI

    A Regular DUI is one with a BAC of 0.08 or more but less than 0.15. It can also be one where you are alleged to be impaired to the slightest degree and BAC is irrelevant. The mandatory minimum penalty for a Regular DUI is 10-180 days in jail, $250 fine plus surcharges, approximately $1,000 in assessments, and alcohol screening and treatment classes.

    If you have a prior conviction for a DUI in the last 84 months, that mandatory minimum penalty rises to 90-180 days in jail, a $500 fine plus surcharges, approximately $2,500 in assessments, alcohol screening and treatment classes, and a minimum of 30 hours of community service.

    Extreme DUI

    An Extreme DUI is one with a BAC of 0.15 or more but less than 0.20. The mandatory minimum penalty is 30-180 days in jail, a $250 fine plus surcharges, approximately $2,000 in assessments, $250 to the DUI abatement fund, and alcohol screening and treatment classes.

    A prior DUI conviction in the last 84 months increases the mandatory minimum penalty to 120-180 days in jail, $500 fine plus surcharges, approximately $2,500 in assessments, $250 to the DUI abatement fund, alcohol assessment and treatment classes, and a minimum of 30 hours of community service.

    Super Extreme DUI

    A Super Extreme DUI is one with a BAC of 0.20 or higher. The mandatory minimum penalty is 45-180 days in jail, a $500 fine plus surcharges, $250 to the DUI abatement fund, approximately $2,000 in assessments and fees, and alcohol screening and treatment classes.

    A prior DUI conviction in the last 84 months increases that mandatory minimum penalty to 180 days in jail, a $1,000 fine plus surcharges, $250 to the DUI abatement fund, approximately $2,500 in assessments and fees, alcohol screening and treatment classes, and a minimum of 30 hours of community service.
