Drunk Driving Penalties in Arizona: Impaired to the Slightest Degree Conviction (Part 2 of 6)

As discussed in our last blog post, there are many different types of penalties that one would receive if convicted of a misdemeanor DUI charge in Arizona. Starting in this post, we will begin to break down the minimum penalties for the 5 types of misdemeanor DUI convictions in Arizona.

Drunk Driving Penalties in Arizona: The Basics (Part 1 of 6)

While many people may either know someone who got a DUI in Arizona, or may have even gotten a DUI themselves in the past, many people don't fully understand the consequences of getting a DUI conviction in Arizona these days.

Jail Time "Costs" in Arizona: You Pay for Your Time

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.

Will the New AZ DUI Law Allow Me to Remove My Ignition Interlock Device Early?

Earlier this year, the Arizona State Legislature passed SB 1200. SB 1200 deals with Arizona DUI enforcement and consequences. One of the most talked about provisions of SB 1200 is the limiting of the mandatory ignition interlock device usage from one year (the current law) to six (6) months on 1st offense non-extreme DUIs in Arizona. This is good news because of the cost and stress often associated with the mandated use of ignition interlock devices, and the questionable science regarding their efficacy.Unfortunately, that provision of the bill will not go into effect until January 1, 2012, and the new rule regarding the ignition interlock device will only be applicable to people arrested for DUI in Arizona in the year 2012 and later.
