If your BAC was .20 or higher at the time of your arrest, you don’t have to have damaged any property or injured an individual to receive some of the harshest DUI penalties around. The state views drivers with a BAC this high as immediate threats to the safety and well-being of the general public, and for this reason, they will try to punish you severely.
You may have a spotless driving record with no so much as a routine fender bender in your life, but the judge’s hands are often tied by the law when it comes to Super Extreme DUIs. Fighting back hard is the only smart choice when you are facing a minimum of 45 days in jail. The Rosenstein Law Group will examine every single detail of the prosecutor’s evidence to find reasons to get your charges reduced, dismissed, or to present an aggressive defense at trial.
If a BAC reads .20 or higher following a breath or blood test, Arizona’s new “super extreme” DUI laws mandate harsh penalties. Being convicted means:
A second offense super extreme DUI conviction calls for a 180 day minimum jail sentence, license revocation for 1 year with no possibility of a work permit, and 24 months of an ignition interlock device after reinstatement.
You cannot fight these charges alone, so it’s important to contact Attorney Craig Rosenstein immediately following your arrest . He employs a full case strategy, including a review of the BAC evidence by expert independent criminologists, and even looking at the legality of the traffic stop to ensure your rights weren’t infringed upon arrest.
Time is a valuable factor, and to avoid the worst outcomes you’ll need to act quickly. Contact the Rosenstein Law Group for a free case evaluation. Call any time, day or night, seven days a week at 480-248-7666.
