What Makes a DUI Charge “Aggravated?”

An aggravated DUI charge is like a typical DUI. Still, the driver will be facing much harsher penalties than the usual misdemeanor DUI, as the prosecutor will charge the offense(s) as a felony. If an arresting police officer finds that any of the following aggravating factors are present when a driver is being apprehended. Then they may be charged with an aggravated DUI:

Multiple DUI’s in 7 years

You have two or more DUI convictions within the last seven years. Suppose the driver has previously been convicted of two (or more) other DUIs within seven years of their new arrest date. In that case, they will likely face Aggravated DUI, Class 4 Felony charges.

Driving with Child Passenger

You were driving with a passenger under 15 years of age. A DUI charge on a driver who had a passenger under 15 years of age in the car with them will likely result in the driver being charged with Aggravated DUI, a Class 6 Felony charge.

Driving Without a Full License

Following a stop for a DUI with a drivers license that is suspended, revoked, or restricted, a DUI charge will likely result in Aggravated DUI. An Aggravated DUI is a class 4 felony charge.

Driving Without an Interlock

You were driving without a required ignition interlock device. Suppose you were arrested for a DUI in a car without an ignition interlock device. But you have previously been required to only drive a vehicle with an ignition interlock device installed in it. Therefore, will likely result in Aggravated DUI, Class 4 Felony charges.

Wrong-Way DUI

You were driving the wrong way. A driver going the wrong way (direction) on a street or highway can result in Aggravated DUI, Class 4 Felony charges.

Aggravated DUI Penalties

Aggravated DUI Defenses

If you have been arrested for or charged with aggravated DUI in Scottsdale, Arizona, there is still hope. At Rosenstein Law Group, we will work with you and can help you understand your various options for the possible defense to your charges. Depending on your exact case and surrounding circumstances, possible defenses may include the following.

Incorrect Blood Alcohol Reading

We can often find issues through our attorneys’ many years of experience reviewing the State’s blood alcohol content results and testing methods. These include oversights, inconsistencies, and outright errors and mistakes in the State’s results that can lead to your charges being reduced or outright dismissed.

Actual Physical Control

The State must prove that the accused was in actual physical control of the automobile to get a conviction. Depending on the circumstances, our attorneys can use the prosecutor’s insufficient ability to prove this element to achieve favorable results.

No Reasonable Suspicion

Suppose the officer who pulled over the driver’s car did not have a legal reason to do so (like the driver committed a traffic violation). In that case, our attorneys can have filed the appropriate motions and have the case completely dismissed.

No Probable Cause

Suppose after the driver is stopped, the police have no evidence that the driver was impaired by alcohol or drugs. In that case, our attorneys can argue for the dismissal of the charges.

If You Were Denied, Counsel

If you requested to speak to an attorney and were denied that right. Then our attorneys can use that fact to have blood alcohol content results precluded and possibly have all your charges dismissed.
