If you are arrested for super extreme DUI in Phoenix, you should assume prosecutors are going to seek the maximum penalty. That’s because Arizona is not only a zero tolerance state, it’s also home to the harshest DUI laws in the country.
Arizona is also one of the only states in the U.S. with a super extreme DUI charge on the books. Anyone suspected of driving with a blood alcohol content of .200% or higher will be charged with super extreme DUI.
Make no mistake. A conviction will make life hard for you and the people you care about. Your reputation, job, freedom and driving privileges are at risk. Never take a super extreme DUI charge lightly and always talk to a defense attorney before speaking with anyone else.
With a basic DUI conviction, the minimum jail term is just one day. However, a super extreme DUI conviction comes with a 45-day minimum jail term and maximum of six months. In some cases, someone could be eligible for work release or home detention.
A conviction of super extreme DUI also means your license will be suspended for at least 90 days. If you depend on your vehicle to get to and from work, this could have a severe impact on your professional life.
Even when driving privileges are restored, those convicted of super extreme DUI are required to have an ignition interlock device installed on their personal vehicle for a minimum of 18 months. If you are convicted, you’ll also be responsible for the cost of installation and maintenance fees.
While super extreme DUI is classified as a misdemeanor in Arizona, the penalties can be more severe than some felony convictions. That’s why it is absolutely critical to speak with an experienced attorney at the earliest possible opportunity.
It’s important to remember that being charged with super extreme DUI doesn’t mean you are going to be convicted. If police didn’t follow proper procedure, gather evidence correctly or if the equipment used to test your BAC was unreliable your case could be dismissed.
