Arizona woman arrested for felony DUI

Many drivers in Arizona have gotten behind the wheel with alcohol in their system at one time or another. Unfortunately, even if you are in full control of your vehicle, you could still face criminal charges if you are over the legal limit. If convicted, this could lead to serious penalties, especially if you are charged with a felony. The severity of the charges against you depends on a number of factors, including whether anyone was injured in the incident.

How is the one-leg stand assessed?

Every year in Arizona, countless drivers get pulled over on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol. If this happens to you, the likelihood is that you will be asked to submit to a breath test. You may also be required to participate in a number of field sobriety tests designed to measure your possible impairment.

In Arizona, it is no secret that drunk driving can have serious implications, especially if you are convicted.

Unfortunately, there are all too many rules surrounding this process, and it can be hard to figure out the right choices on your own.

Refusing a breath test could cost you your license

For many residents of Arizona, their car is essential. Everyday trips suddenly become far more time-consuming without the use of a private vehicle, and the cost of using public transport can soon mount up.

No matter how careful you are, a false result could get you into serious legal trouble and you may be faced with life-changing criminal charges. All you can do is begin to plan your defense and find a way to show that the results shown were incorrect.

What factors can exacerbate DUI charges?

When you are found to be over the legal limit while driving, you already know the consequences could be severe. Throughout Arizona, countless drivers face serious penalties every year in relation to DUI charges. Unfortunately, you only need to be caught once for your entire life to be turned upside down. Suddenly, you are being subjected to a potentially lengthy criminal investigation, with the threat of conviction hanging over you.

Know what to expect from a field sobriety test

In Arizona, if you are stopped on suspicion of drunk driving, you probably already know what to expect. You might be Breathalyzed, asked questions about whether you have consumed any alcohol or even requested to submit to  field sobriety tests. While you do have the right to refuse, it can result in the suspension of your license, so it is important to consider this decision carefully.
