Extreme DUI – Tempe

Arizona DUI laws are some of the strictest in the nation. This is even more so in the case of “extreme DUI” charges, when police allege a BAC (blood alcohol content) level of .15 to .199. Extreme DUI blood alcohol content levels are approximately double those of a “regular DUI.” If you are convicted of extreme DUI in Tempe or anywhere in Arizona, you face stiff fines, penalties and consequences.

When BAC Levels Were Allegedly .15 or Higher, You Need an Experienced Tempe Drunk Driving Lawyer

An experienced, proven-effective defense lawyer can help prevent the worst outcome and enhance your chances at a best-case scenario: reduction of charges, dismissal of charges or acquittal at trial.

Attorney Craig Rosenstein spares no effort in evaluation and investigation of an extreme DUI case. Examination of every detail through aggressive DUI defense strategies is most likely to bring about the best outcome.

Mr. Rosenstein approaches each Tempe area “aggressive DUI” case with the assumption that it will go to trial. Often, the prosecutor reviews the information presented by Mr. Rosenstein and makes an acceptable offer before the case goes to court. The prosecutor also knows that Mr. Rosenstein will go to trial on behalf of an extreme DUI defendant if necessary.

Rosenstein Law Group has a known record of many acquittals and dismissals in drunk driving cases, even when high BAC levels were alleged by police. Our clients were arrested in area communities such as Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe, throughout Maricopa, Pinal and Pima counties. Call 480-248-7666 at any hour to request a free case evaluation.

Is Your DUI Case at the Level of Extreme DUI?

If your BAC was measured at .15 to .199, about twice the .08 regular DUI BAC, and you are convicted, you will be considered an immediate danger to the public. Your penalties for conviction will most likely include the following:

  • Jail time of 30 to 180 days — and you must pay the costs
  • Other fines and fees
  • Up to five years’ probation
  • Impounding of your car, truck or motorcycle for up to 30 days
  • Driver’s license suspension for 90 days to a year, with a work permit sometimes possible after 30 days
  • A requirement to have an ignition interlock device installed on your car for 12 months after your driver’s license has been reinstated

If you are convicted a second time for extreme DUI, you can expect to spend 120-180 days in jail (required minimum: 60 days), and your vehicle may be forfeited permanently.

(Were your charges at the super extreme DUI level of BAC .20 or greater?)

Aggressive Strategies for Tempe Extreme DUI Defense

Tempe DUI attorney Craig Rosenstein employs a full case strategy to attack the prosecution’s evidence. If your BAC was measured at .15 or higher, we specifically evaluate the accuracy of the Breathalyzer machine, lab testing procedures and chain of custody of the sample, how the blood or urine sample was taken, how much time lapsed, and the methodology used when that blood was testing. We also look at the overall arrest and whether police followed proper procedure and observed your constitutional rights.
