  • Your license will be suspended from 90 to 360 days.
  • You will pay a minimum of $250 in fines.
  • An ignition interlock device will be installed in your vehicle.

Is Jail Time Mandatory for DUI in Arizona?

Yes, jail time is mandatory for DUI convictions in Arizona. However, Arizona law allows the court to pardon or reduce compulsory jail time in certain situations. 

What Happens if You Refuse a Breathalyzer in Arizona?

In Arizona, refusing a breathalyzer test can result in a one-year driving license suspension for a first offense. A second refusal within eight years can result in a two-year suspension. 

Multiple Offense DUI/DWI

If you are convicted of two DUIs within five years, the consequences increase dramatically. You face incarceration, large fines, license suspension and the installation of an ignition interlock device, among other penalties. When the stakes are this high, it is imperative to enlist the services of an experienced and aggressive DUI/DWI defense lawyer.

Felony DWI

If you are convicted of three DUIs within five years, you will be charged with felony DWI. This is a very serious offense that comes with hefty fines, years in prison and a significant license revocation period. Our Phoenix DUI lawyers will prepare a compelling criminal defense designed to expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, including any violations of your constitutional rights.

We will use every legal resource available to create the most compelling argument on your behalf.

Law enforcement officials have specific rules they have to follow in the process of charging you with a DUI and any deviation from those rules could constitute a violation of your rights. We will get your account of the case and closely examine the police reports and other parts of the case to ensure that your rights were respected at all times. If they were not, we will seek to have the charges against you dismissed.
