What is Aggravated DUI?

Arizona Aggravated DUI

A person convicted of an aggravated DUI offense is guilty of a Class 4 felony.

Either driving under the influence, being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle or driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or more will be considered an aggravated offense if it is committed while the person’s license is suspended, canceled, revoked, refused or restricted, and the State can prove that the person knew the status of his driving privileges.

Likewise, if a person has been previously convicted of two prior drinking and driving offenses, with all these offenses occurring within 84 months, then the third conviction will result in an aggravated sentence.

The dates of commission of the offenses are the dispositive dates in determining the 84-month period.
