Arizona Aggravated DUI Penalties

In Arizona, Aggravated DUI is a serious allegation and is considered to be a felony. If you are facing felony charges it is of dire importance that you seek qualified, experienced legal representation.

If you are convicted of an Aggravated DUI you may face the following penalties:

  • Minimum of 4 months in a state prison (and up to 3.75 years)
  • Forfeiture of your vehicle
  • Large Fines (Up to $150,000)
  • Probation for up to 10 years
  • Revocation or your drivers license
  • Ignition Interlock device for up to 10 years

A felony conviction can have traumatic consequences on your employment, finances, family, and freedom.
