If you are accused of driving under the influence and are involved in an accident where someone is seriously hurt or dies then you face substantial penalties if convicted.
Under Arizona law vehicles may be considered to be deadly weapons or dangerous instruments, and so if you drive while impaired and seriously injure or kill someone you may be charged with vehicular manslaughter or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The penalties for both vehicular manslaughter and aggravated assault convictions include a felony record and a lengthy mandatory prison sentence.
