Reducing Your DUI Charge To Lesser Offense

Reducing Your DUI Charge in Arizona

If you have been charged with a DUI, it is not doubt that you want your charges to be dismissed, an experienced DUI attorney can help do just that for you, if possible.

Dismissal is less likely to happen in most cases, but what is more possible is that your charge can be reduced. In a misdemeanor case, reducing your DUI to a reckless driving charge is more likely than it would be if there were felony charges.

However, according to Arizona law, a DUI charge is not supposed to be dismissed unless the facts presented in the case are not sufficient.

At Thrush Law Group, we will work hard at reducing your DUI charge, but there are many factors that must be considered, including:

  • Factual issues in the case that could benefit the defendant
  • The blood alcohol level at the time of the charge
  • The police officer’s account of the traffic stop
  • Medical issues that may prevent the defendant from serving time in jail

Every case is unique, and there are different rules that apply to each client, from police reports to personal issues.

In the city of Phoenix, the courts follow the law very strictly and will refuse to reduce a DUI to reckless driving unless there are absolutely extraordinary and rare circumstances.

Other city courts in Arizona may be more open to it, but due to the very strict DUI laws, your chances of this happening will increase as long as you have a DUI attorney that will fight hard for your rights in your DUI case.
