Extreme DUI

First and Second Offense Extreme DUI in Arizona

What is Extreme DUI?

Under ARS 28-1382(A)(1) it is unlawful for a person to drive or be in actual physical control of a vehicle in Arizona if the person has an alcohol concentration above .15, but below .20, within 2 hours of driving or being in actual physical control of a vehicle.   This is commonly referred to as an Extreme DUI.  A first and second offense Extreme DUI is a Class 1 Misdemeanor, punishable with up to 5 years probation, $5,000.00 in fines, court fees, 6 months in jail, court ordered substance abuse counseling, and any other term as ordered by the judge.  In addition, Arizona law requires the judge to impose the following minimum sentence for a person convicted under this statute:

 

First Offense

  • Mandatory minimum 30 days in jail;
  • Mandatory minimum $2,700 in fines;
  • Jail fees and other court fees;
  • Mandatory court ordered substance abuse counseling.

 

Second Offense

  • Mandatory minimum 120 days in jail;
  • Mandatory minimum $3,500 in fines;
  • Jail fees and other court fees;
  • Mandatory court ordered substance abuse counseling.

 

In addition to the above mandatory court penalties, MVD will suspend your license and require that you complete traffic survival school prior to getting your driving privileges back.  Once you are allowed to drive again you will also be required to equip your vehicle with the ignition interlock device.
