DUI Penalties in Arizona: Phoenix DUI Lawyer

Serious Consequences in DUI Convictions

Are you facing criminal charges for drunk driving? Depending on the type of DUI charge, you may face serious penalties including fines, the loss of your driver's license, probation, jail time and court-ordered community service and alcohol treatment programs. When you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is imperative that you act at once and contact a Phoenix DUI attorney to review your case. Attorney Joshua S. Davidson is a former prosecutor with the Major Crimes Division of the Maricopa County Attorney's Office. His experience in that office has given him a unique view into the mind of the prosecution and he is prepared to provide aggressive legal representation to help you fight to avoid penalties.

DUI Penalties: What are the consequences of drunk driving charges?

In the state of Arizona, DUI penalties depend upon the level of the drunk driving charge, whether a misdemeanor, felony or underage offense. As this is a "zero tolerance" state when it comes to underage drinking, young people charged with under 21 DUI could face penalties ranging from 30 days in jail, a fine of $500 or more, 30 hours of community service and license suspension for one year. An individual charged with extreme DUI could face similar penalties as one convicted for under 21 DUI, plus additional penalties such as higher fines and the requirement to install an ignition interlock device on any vehicle he or she operates.

Those who are charged with a DUI not involving extenuating circumstances such as underage drinking or extreme DUI still face heavy penalties, even in a first time DUI. Depending on the specifics of your case and the amount of alcohol it is alleged that you had in your blood, if you are charged with DUI you could face time in jail, fines, community service, counseling, probation, driver's license suspension, as the basic penalties. If you have been charged with DUI, call now and Joshua S. Davidson can review your situation and advise you about the possible defense strategies that could be effective in your case. It may be possible to have your case dismissed if there were significant errors in police procedure, test administration or in the initial police stop that led to your arrest.
