Felony DUI in Arizona

In Arizona a DUI arrest is commonly filed as a misdemeanor DUI. However there are three main factors that will escalate a DUI charge to an Arizona Felony DUI, a more serious crime with harsh punishments and life long consequences:.

Three Aggravated DUI Factors that result in Felony DUI

1) Arizona aggravated felony DUI will be charged if you have two or more prior DUI convictions within the past seven years. These include getting any of the prior DUI convictions in Arizona or any other state.

2) Arizona aggravated felony DUI will be charged if you were drunk driving, driving under the influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or “impaired to the slightest degree” and a child or children under the age of 15 years old were in the vehicle. Even if it is your first DUI, it will be charged as a felony DUI due to the fact that a child or children were in the vehicle while you were driving or in physical control of the vehicle at the time of the DUI stop.

3) Arizona felony DUI is charged if you were drunk driving, or charged with any DUI DWI while your drivers’ license was revoked, suspended or restricted for any reason.

Felony DUI Penalties

An Arizona aggravated felony DUI conviction exposes you to mandatory sentencing guidelines including lengthy supervised probation, felony conviction on your record; jail form 1 day to 1 year; prison form 4 months to 2 ½ years; revocation of your drivers’ license for 3 years and other harsh punishments at the discretion of the Judge.
