People are often confused by the difference between city jails, county jails and prison. While these facilities are similar there are several important differences.
A conviction for a DUI in Arizona doesn't just come with a criminal conviction on your record, MVD punishments (such as driver's license suspension, points on your license, ignition interlock use requirements, etc.), fines and fees, and mandated alcohol screening and classes-- it also comes with jail time. Now, although most people are aware that persons convicted of a DUI charge in Arizona will typically serve jail time, most people are unaware that the person also has to pay for his or her jail time.
