Charged with a DUI While Under an Ignition Interlock Device Restriction?

Aggravated DUI Attorneys in Phoenix

Arizona laws are strict when it comes to driving while intoxicated or while under the influence. While many DUI charges fall under different misdemeanor levels, aggravated DUIs are different. If a person is charged with a DUI offense while already having an ignition interlock device restriction, they can potentially be convicted of an aggravated DUI.

When a person receives an aggravated DUI charge, he or she faces a felony conviction. A DUI conviction with a prior ignition interlock device restriction is classified as a class 4 felony in Arizona. The person charged can face extensive jail time and heavy fines.

What is an Ignition Interlock Device?

If a judge finds an individual in violation of driving while intoxicated, the driver may be forced to install an ignition interlock device. The person will then have to blow into a breath analyzer in order for the ignition to start.

If you are caught driving under the influence with an ignition interlock device restriction, contact our Arizona DUI defense attorneys immediately.

Penalties for a DUI with Ignition Interlock Device

Arizona classifies aggravated DUIs as class 4 felonies. This can mean jail time. According to Arizona § 28-1383, some of the consequences include:

  • A minimum of 120 days in prison (the maximum can be up to 3.75 years in prison)
  • Fines up to $150,000
  • Up to 10 years of supervised probation
  • 3-year driver’s license suspension
  • Mandatory alcohol abuse screening, education, treatment, or counseling

The penalties can change or be altered based on the exact level of intoxication a driver had while driving.

Solid Criminal Defense Representation You Can Rely On

There are steps you can take to disprove the charges and defend your rights. There are cases where the police wrongfully stop individuals or the field tests fail to offer accurate reports. Our Arizona DUI defense attorneys can carefully analyze your case to best represent you in court. At MayesTelles PLLC, we understand how frightening and stressful aggravated DUI charges can be.
