In Arizona, a person can be prosecuted for operating a watercraft while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. There have been relatively recent changes to Arizona’s OUI laws to bring them more in line with Arizona’s DUI laws. What that means to someone who has been accused of an OUI is that the punishments have become much harsher than they once were.
While there should be no effect on an individual’s driver’s license regardless of the outcome of the OUI charges, there are now mandatory minimum penalties, including jail, that come with an OUI conviction.
Our Arizona OUI attorneys have extensive experience defending clients facing these and other serious alcohol-related offenses.
