Know the Charges and What You Could be Facing
Arizona Law Treats DUI as a Serious Offense
Here are the alcohol blood levels and the penalties that can be filed:
1. Blood alcohol of .08 to .149: This is classified as Driving Under the Influence (DUI). It can also be called Driving While Impaired (DWI). It is the first level of DUI charges if you are 21 years old or older.
2. Blood alcohol of .15 or greater: This is classified as Extreme DUI.
3. Blood alcohol of .2 or greater: You can be charged with Super Extreme DUI.
4. Blood alcohol in a minor. Drivers under the age of 21 can be charged with a DUI/DWI if there is any alcohol in their system. Blood alcohol between .01 to .08 is enough for a minor to be charged and convicted. They can also be charged with minor in consumption or minor in possession. These charges can impact their ability to have a driver’s license for up to two years if they are under the age of 18 – even if they were not the driver. If your minor child is charged, make sure he or she has the support of a DUI attorney like Adam Rieth.
5. Fines are as much as $1,250 for a first offense. They can be substantially higher if you have a previous DUI or are charge with Extreme or Super Extreme DUI.
6. Jail time can be given for a first offense. Jail time is a real possibility. It can extend to a full year – or more – for repeated offenses or Extreme or Super Extreme charges.
7. Additional penalties can include the cost of installing a Certified Ignition Interlock. You may also be required to participate in alcohol or drug screenings, treatment or education.
