Where were you arrested?
Buckeye Felony DUI’s
An Aggravated DUI is a felony in the state of Arizona. If you are convicted of an Aggravated DUI you face consequences far worse than even those of the already strict DUI laws. Your Buckeye DUI arrest may lead to felony charges based on your circumstances. You can be charged with a felony DUI in Buckeye if:
- There was a minor under the age of 15 with you in the car at the time of driving
- Your driver’s license was suspended, cancelled, or revoked when you were driving
- You are required to equip your car with an ignition interlock device but do not
- This is your third DUI within the last 7 years
- You were driving the wrong way
Felony DUI Penalties
An Aggravated DUI conviction requires a minimum sentence of 4 months in prison along with probation. You may be sentenced for up to 3.75 years in prison. If you have been previously convicted of any felony you face enhanced sentences even greater than that and will be ineligible for probation. There are other significant consequences, like a felony conviction on your record, the loss of your driver’s license, and more.
