Aggravated Arizona DUI Penalties
An aggravated Arizona DUI sentence includes a minimum of four months in prison followed by a period of probation.
Suspension of sentence or release on any other basis is not available until the person serves at least four months in custody.
The sentence will also include up to ten years of supervised probation and alcohol screening, counseling, education and treatment.
If the person fails to complete the screening, counseling, education or treatment the court may re-sentence the person to an additional term in county jail or prison.
The court may also impose a fine up to $150,000.
In addition to all of the aforementioned sanctions, the court may order the motor vehicle owned and operated by the person at the time of the offense forfeited.
A person convicted of either driving under the influence or driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or more who has three or more prior convictions within the last 84 months is guilty of a Class 4 felony.
The sentence will be similar to the one stated above in that the person must serve a minimum of four months in prison.
