  7. Arizona DUI Penalties

If you’re arrested and face an Arizona DUI charge, representation by a strong DUI defense lawyer is crucial. Arizona DUI Prosecutors push hard for convictions and for the heaviest DUI penalties they can get.

Drunk driving isn’t just one charge, but a series of charges based on the circumstances in your case. Without an aggressive drunk driving defense lawyer like William L. Morris, you may be facing harsher penalties than you deserve simply because prosecutors have asked for more severe charges than are warranted.

In addition to criminal court, you’ll also face DUI penalties with the Motor Vehicle Department. Representing you at the MVD hearing is another way that DUI defense lawyer William L. Morris can help to keep your DUI penalties from overwhelming your life.

Common DUI Penalties include:

  • Aggravated DUI – Felony DUI

If someone dies in an accident caused by a drunk driver, several murder related charges could also be filed:

  • Manslaughter
  • Second Degree Murder

Which DUI charge you face is determined by your blood alcohol concentration, your age (if you’re under 21), and if there was an accident involving injury to someone else. Contrary to popular belief, in Arizona, you can be charged with DUI even if your blood alcohol concentration is below the legal limit of .08%!

A strong DUI defense lawyer will keep prosecutors from being overly aggressive in your case, and can even get DUI penalties dropped or lessened considerably. Click here to find out the steps that William L. Morris takes in your FREE initial telephone consultation.
