If you are charged with DUI with injury then you could face felony charges. It is a serious matter when an individual is driving while drunk and they cause an accident that results in the injury or death of another individual.
There are many different ways to be charged with felony DUI, also called aggravated DUI in Arizona. One common way for this to occur is to be convicted of a third DUI within a seven-year period.
The penalties for a first DUI conviction may include a 10-day jail sentence, however at the judge’s discretion, all but 24 hours of this jail sentence may be waved in lieu of attendance in alcohol screening, education or treatment program as ordered by the court.
Under 21 DUI
Arizona has a no tolerance law in place, which means that you can be charged with underage DUI if you are under the age of 21 and you are found to be driving with any traceable amount of alcohol in your system, BAC of .01 percent or higher.
Vehicles can be considered deadly weapons in the case of an accident where alcohol is involved, thereby applying manslaughter and assault laws to this situation. The penalties for conviction are often a felony record and extensive prison sentences among others.
