Aggravated (Felony) DUI in Arizona ARS 28-1383

by Aaron Black • February 23, 2016
An Aggravated (Felony) DUI in Arizona under ARS 28-1383 is a serious offense. If you are found Guilty there are “mandatory minimum” sentences. If convicted, you must serve a minimum 4 months in the Arizona Department of Corrections. If you are granted probation, that can last up to 10 years. If however this is a first felony conviction and you are not granted probation, you would serve 1 - 3.75 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections.

I have defended hundreds of felony DUI cases in Maricopa County, Arizona and I have taken over thirty of the cases to jury trial. Many times it is worth going to trial because your plea offer is the same as what you would get after trial.

When you are looking to hire an Aggravated DUI Attorney, be sure to ask them how many Aggravated DUI cases they have actually taken to trial as you want a lawyer who is not afraid to fight for you. You want an attorney who is not going to try and get you to plead out to the charge when you can get the same punishment after trial.

You can be charged with Aggravated DUI in Arizona a few different ways

  1. Your license was suspended, revoked or refused;

  4. You have a child under the age of 15 in your vehicle while being under the influence.
