What is Aggravated DUI?
An aggravated DUI conviction requires a mandatory 4 months in prison. A felony conviction will remain on your record forever, and a felony aggravated DUI conviction can always be alleged and used against you in the future.
A person can be charged with aggravated DUI if any of the followings apply:
1. The person is arrested for DUI while their driver license or privilege to drive is suspended, canceled, revoked or refused or while a restriction is placed on the person's driver license.
2. The person has two previous DUI convictions within 84 months of the current DUI charge.
3. There was a person under fifteen years of age is in the vehicle.
4. The person is ordered to equip any motor vehicle the person operates with a certified ignition interlock device.
What Are the Consequences
of Aggravated DUI?
First time offenders face a prison sentence between one and 3.75 years, with a presumptive sentence of 2.5 years. Being convicted of aggravated DUI requires first time offenders to serve a mandatory prison sentence of at least four months without the option for work release or work furlough.
For repeat offenders, or those with one prior felony conviction, a prison sentence between 2.25 and 7.5 years can be imposed, and there is a presumptive sentence of 4.5 years. If a person was on probation at the time of the offense, the court cannot impose less than 4.5 years in prison.
As part of any aggravated DUI conviction, the court will impose probation as part of the sentence and can require supervised probation for up to ten years.
An aggravated DUI is a felony conviction and it will remain on your criminal record. The State of Arizona has designated aggravated DUI’s as “forever allegeable” so the conviction can be used to enhance any sentence on any felony crime a person is charged with for the rest of their life.
That means it will always be considered a “prior felony conviction” that the state can use to impose enhanced penalties if a person is charged with a felony in the future.
