Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

Be prepared for your DUI trial

In Arizona, the roads can often become very busy and it is no surprise that accidents are a common occurrence. No matter how careful you are, it only takes a slight mistake to precipitate a disastrous incident. If this happens, not only are you likely to be left injured and shaken, but you may also be faced with a criminal investigation. Officers will want to determine whether you were under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash and if you are suspected of drunk driving, you could face serious charges.

It is likely that you will be asked to submit to a number of tests, such as being Breathalyzed, to determine your blood alcohol content. If you are over the limit, this alone is enough to get you into trouble. However, if you are deemed to be at fault in the accident and if anyone else was injured as a result, you could face multiple or even felony charges.

Prior convictions can exacerbate the matter as repeat offenses can often come with harsher sentences. Other factors, such as having young children in your vehicle while driving drunk can also count against you.

If you are facing felony drunk driving charges, the future may feel very uncertain. The penalties for felony charges can often be severe   while the mark on your record can have a permanent effect on your future. It can be hard to know where to turn if you find yourself in such a position, but all is not lost. Our page on DUI charges may have some of the answers you need. Meanwhile, an attorney could also prove to be a valuable ally, as he or she can advise you about your defense and may be able to support you through the legal process.
