My client was charge with his second DUI in 7 years. A Second Time Extreme DUI is the consequence of new DUI charge within 84 months of date of 1st DUI conviction. A result of driving under the influence with a BAC (Blood alcohol content) above .15 however, less than .20, and extreme DUI carries a mandatory 120 days in jail.

In some but not all circumstances you may be able to serve out your sentence at home. While on Home Detention you would be required to wear a GPS monitor and have a machine installed in your house that will require you to submit to 3 random alcohol tests per day. Since this was a county case the Judges in Maricopa County are prohibited from handing down sentences for home detention so jail time was inevitable.

Sentance reduction

I was able to get the charges against my client reduced to a regular DUI and their jail sentence was lowered to 90 days. My client served every day in jail however, he was able to get work release for 6 days a week and 2 hours per day.
