Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

Can your car be confiscated after a DUI?

In Arizona, many people enjoy a drink once in a while. However, if you choose to drive after you have been drinking it is important to be aware of the amount of alcohol you might have in your system. This is because, no matter how coherent and in control you might be, if you are found to be over the legal limit, you could be charged with drunk driving.

Every year in Arizona, accidents on the roads result in lengthy investigations and even criminal charges for those involved. If the consumption of alcohol is thought to have contributed to the incident, there may be accusations of drunk driving and the potential for heavy penalties if convicted. In order to cut down on such incidents, many states have DUI checkpoints at which drivers are expected to stop to be checked out. Ignoring such checkpoints can often have serious consequences.

Can prior convictions affect your sentence?

It is no secret that being charged with a drunk driving offense in Arizona can have serious or even life-changing consequences. If convicted, the penalties could range from fines and license suspension to a prison sentence. Whatever the case, it can severely impact your future, particularly as you will be left with a mark on your criminal record. This can diminish your chances of getting a job and may even impact matters such as college options or where you can live.

Was your drunk driving arrest legal?

Many motorists in Arizona will have been pulled over at some point. It may have been because a headlight was out, because their driving looked erratic or even because there had been a report made about their vehicle. However, if you are stopped by officers in this way, there is a chance that you might be investigated for drunk driving. If found to be intoxicated, you could then face criminal charges.

Being investigated for drunk driving is never a pleasant experience, regardless of whether you are guilty of the alleged offense or not. You may need to undergo several tests to determine your sobriety and blood alcohol concentration. However, even if you are sober, these tests can be daunting and your nervousness can throw you off, making you appear less competent than you are at the time.
