If you are facing a Driving Under the Influence, or DUI, charge in the Flagstaff Municipal Court, it is important to consider the consequences of a conviction. Although you may believe that hiring a lawyer to help you with your Flagstaff Municipal Court DUI is something you cannot afford, what you really cannot afford is not giving yourself the best opportunity to protect your driving privileges, freedom, and good name.
What Are the Penalties
A DUI (Driving Under the Influence) conviction from the Flagstaff Municipal Court may result in substantial jail time, fines and fees, alcohol treatment, loss of driving privileges, increased insurance rates, and installation of an ignition interlock device.
However that is only the short-term penalty. In the long-term, a DUI conviction from the Flagstaff Municipal Court means a permanent criminal record. Arizona does not offer expungement, and so the negative effects of your conviction may linger. Your insurance rates will likely continue to be higher, and any employer or landlord doing a background check will know about your conviction. Depending on what you do for a living, you may lose licenses, permits, or clearances that you need to do your job.
