Defending Against Charges of Extreme DUI in Phoenix, AZ
If you are facing an Extreme DUI charge in Phoenix, you can expect higher fines and more severe penalties. An Extreme DUI is charged when the defendant is found to have been operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.15 percent or above. This BAC level usually indicates a much more severe inhibition of the driver's driving dexterity, and the driver's ability to safely operate the vehicle he or she is driving is greatly reduced.
Some of the charges you might face with a first-time Extreme DUI charge include driver's license suspension for 90 days, up to 5 years probation, 30 consecutive days in jail, drug and alcohol treatment program and even the required installation of an ignition interlock device. On the other hand, if this is your second Extreme DUI charge, the possible penalties are much more severe:
- More than $2000 in fines;
- Driver's license revoked for one year;
- Up to five years probation;
- 60 consecutive days in jail, 120 days total;
- Drug / alcohol treatment program; and
- Required installation of an ignition interlock device
