Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.
Where were you arrested?
Felony DUI – Flagstaff
DUIs in Arizona can be charged as felonies, and when they are they are called Aggravated DUIs. The penalties for an Aggravated DUI are tremendous, even when compared to our harsh DUI penalties. Whether your Flagstaff DUI arrest will lead to a felony Aggravated DUI charge depends on your circumstances. The arrest may lead to a felony Aggravated DUI charge if:
- There was a minor under the age of 15 in the car with you
- Your driver’s license was suspended, revoked, or cancelled
- You were required to use an ignition interlock device
- You drove the wrong way
- You have two or more prior DUI convictions within a 7 year period
Felony DUI Penalties
The minimum sentence for an Aggravated DUI is 4 months in prison along with probation. You can be sentenced to up to 3.75 years in prison. If you have prior felony convictions then you face even more time in prison.
Where Are Aggravated DUIs Charged
Aggravated DUIs are not charged in the Flagstaff Municipal Court, but will be charged in the Superior Court as they are felony cases. If you fall under one of the above circumstances but your case is in the Flagstaff Municipal Court you need to speak to an attorney immediately to see if you can use it to your advantage.
