DUIs can be charged as felonies in Arizona. A felony DUI is called an Aggravated DUI. A conviction for an Aggravated DUI leads to even worse consequences than those called for by our strict DUI laws. An arrest for a DUI in Carefree or Cave Creek may lead to a felony Aggravated DUI in the following circumstances:
Aggravated DUIs can lead to a minimum of 4 months in prison and up to 3.75 years in prison. Having prior felony convictions, even for non-DUI offenses, can lead to enhanced sentencing and harsher terms of imprisonment. There are secondary consequences as well, like having a felony conviction on your record and loss of driving privileges.
Aggravated DUI’s from Carefree or Cave Creek will not be charged in a municipal court, but rather in the Maricopa County Superior Court. If you believe that your case should be an Aggravated DUI, but you find yourself in the Carefree-Cave Creek Consolidated Court, then it is important to immediately contact an attorney to find out what you should do.
