Felony DUI

What is a felony DUI in Arizona?

It goes without saying that the punishments for a felony DUI conviction in Arizona are substantially harsher than for a misdemeanor DUI conviction. A “felony” DUI in Arizona is almost always referred to as an “Aggravated DUI.” Note that this should not be confused with an “Extreme” or “Super Extreme” DUI. A person can face felony DUI charges for a variety of reasons, but the specific blood or breath alcohol concentration does not change a misdemeanor into a felony. “Felony” or “Aggravated” DUI charges depend on the specific circumstances of the situation, but all are a result of one of (or a combination of) the following:

  • Charged with a DUI while your privilege to drive was suspended, revoked or cancelled (for any reason);
  • Charged with a DUI while you had a child under the age of 15 in the car;
  • Charged with a DUI with two (2) (or more) allegeable prior DUI convictions;
  • Charged with a DUI while operating a vehicle without a court-ordered Ignition Interlock Device.

The punishment and penalties for an Aggravated DUI can vary widely, depending on how the case is charged. It is important to contact one of our attorneys immediately if you find yourself facing a felony DUI charge.
