If you are charged with DUI with injury then you could face felony penalties for conviction. While we think of aggravated assault as a crime that is committed against another person with a deadly weapon, in the state of Arizona a vehicle can be considered a deadly weapon in this case. If an accident causes severe injury to another individual due to negligence, then the negligent individual may be charged with vehicular aggravated assault. When the negligent individual is drinking and driving, the penalties can become more severe.

Penalties for DUI Aggravated Assault
If you are convicted of DUI aggravated assault then you will face a class 3 felony conviction that can carry up to 15 years in state prison. In addition to the prison sentence, you will face other penalties such as extensive fines, probation and others. The felony conviction will go on your permanent record and possibly impair your future to a great degree. You can be denied employment, housing and other benefits due to a criminal record, and for this reason it is vitally important that you have skillful assistance on your side.
