Beyond Standard DUI

Posted on May 8, 2018 in DUI Charges

Most people are aware of the legal limit of .08 BAC to be charged with DUI in Arizona. But there are additional, more serious charges that can apply if the BAC is tested to be significantly higher.

Under Arizona law, drivers can be more than just sober or drunk. DUI charges are dependent on a number of factors that can substantially alter the penalties involved if convicted. While most DUI charges are based on a specific concentration of alcohol in the bloodstream, police officers and the courts have discretion to charge a person with driving under theinfluence even if they do not meet these limits.

Fighting a DUI successfully often depends upon knowing the law and how the BAC level was determined. Getting charges reduced from an extreme DUI or an aggravated DUI can make a significant difference in the level of penalties, as well as the mark on your record.

Let’s use this post to review the levels of DUI charges and the penalties which can result from a conviction, including pleading guilty.
