Super Extreme DUI, Super Extreme Penalties
Those convicted of a Super Extreme DUI under Arizona law, may face greater ramifications than expected. If you have been charged with a criminal offense, contact an experienced criminal lawyer from The Baker Law Firm at 888-309-7736.
When people consider the ramifications of felonies and misdemeanors, most think that the greatest impact and penalties will result from felonies. However, this is not necessarily true. In Arizona, a conviction for Super Extreme DUI, while still a misdemeanor, will carry penalties that are more severe than some felonies.
Super Extreme DUI
If a driver is arrested for a BAC of 0.20 or greater, the driver can be charged with Super Extreme DUI. Arizona is one of only a handful of states to have this highest level of DUI charge. The penalties for super extreme DUI, at the minimum level, are the most severe penalties that someone charged with DUI can possibly face.
Penalties for super extreme DUI may include:
• Up to six months in jail
• Fines of $8,300
• 90 days suspended license
• Interlock installed on vehicle for 18 months
Note that these are the MINIMUM penalties and do not include such costs as increased insurance premiums, attorneys’ fees and any social costs such as a job loss, declined admittance into college or increased difficulty in finding employment.
Because of the enhanced penalties of super extreme DUI, it is vitally important to contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible after being arrested for suspicion of DUI. An experienced DUI attorney can help you fight the allegations and protect your rights.
