To make matters worse, Bautista fled the scene with his 8 year old son.

If you are facing an aggravated DUI I highly recommend that you seek out the best DUI attorney in Phoenix as it is considered a class 6 felony.

What is at stake for an aggravated DUI conviction?

If you are found Guilty of an Aggravated DUI under ARS 28-1383, there are “mandatory minimum” sentences. For example, if convicted, you must serve a minimum of 4 months in the Arizona Department of Corrections as a term or probation.

If granted probation, it can last up to 10 years. Furthermore, if this is a first felony conviction and you are not granted probation, you would serve 1 - 3.75 yearsin prison.
