Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.
Where were you arrested?
Misdemeanor DUI- Fountain Hills
In the state of Arizona, any DUI, Extreme DUI or Super Extreme DUI will be charged as a misdemeanor offense, each of which will be punished under a separate set of penalties. For example, a first-offense DUI could result in up to 10 days of jail time, thousands of dollars in fines and surcharges, driver’s license suspension, mandatory alcohol screening and education, community service hours, and even up to five years on probation. On the other hand, an Extreme DUI, while still a class 1 misdemeanor offense, will be penalized quite differently.
A first offense for Extreme DUI, which is categorized by a blood alcohol content between .15 and .199, could result in 30 days of jail time, thousands of dollars in fines and surcharges, driver’s license suspension for up to 90 days, alcohol screening and education, community service hours, and up to five years on probation. As the seriousness of the offense rises, i.e. second offense Extreme DUI or Super Extreme DUI (BAC over .20), so too will the severity of the consequences that are applied to any conviction that is made.

- It’s your third DUI arrest in 7 years
- The defendant was arrested for a DUI after he or she had been ordered by an Arizona judge to use an ignition interlock device
- The defendant was carrying a passenger under the age of 15 at the time of his or her arrest
- The defendant’s driver’s license was suspended or revoked at the time of his or her DUI arrest
