Serious defense for serious DUI charges with serious penalties

Thinking of a drunk driving arrest, most people automatically assume they are dealing with a misdemeanor charge. That isn't always the case in Arizona. Some drunk driving charges are classified as a felony charge. If you are facing a DUI or DWI that is considered a felony, you must get started on your defense today.

The penalties for a felony drunk driving conviction are more serious than a misdemeanor conviction. The penalties you face depend on the type of circumstances in your case. We know that finding out the possible penalties is important to most defendants.

If your felony charge is because you had a child who was under the age of 15 years old in the vehicle, you face a Class 6 felony. In this case, you face a mandatory minimum of 10 days in jail with a maximum of six months in jail. You also face a license revocation of up to a year.

If your felony charge is because you were driving on a restricted, revoked or suspended license when you were stopped, because you have two prior drunk driving convictions within the past seven years or because you were ordered to use an ignition interlock device, you face a Class 4 felony charge. This type of charge comes with a mandatory minimum of four months in jail with a maximum of 10 years in prison, revocation of your license for three years, confiscation of your vehicle, fines of up to $150,000, up to 10 years on probation and orders to go through alcohol treatment.

We know that these penalties seem harsh. This information should encourage you to get started on your defense today if you are facing drunk driving charges classified as felony charges. We can stand by your side and work on your behalf throughout the process.
