In order to be charged with a DUI, typically in Arizona, there are various levels. Under the age of 21 your BAC cannot be higher than 0.00. It is zero tolerance. Over the age of 21, 0.08 is the minimum in order to be charged with a DUI. Similar to that, if you refuse to take a breathalyzer or a blood test, refusal is, on a first offense, an immediate one-year license suspension. On a second refusal, it is an immediate two-year license suspension and it is the same on your third refusal if you would do so.
The minimum jail time on a first offense is 24 hours; on a second offense, it is 30 days and there is no statutory minimum o n a third offense. There is a statute prohibiting pleading to anything less than a DUI offense or a wet traffic offense in Arizona. To move on into fines the first offense, the base DUI fine, is approximately $250. There’s a DUI surcharge typically applied of $200. There’s a probation surcharge of $10, a prison construction assessment of $500, Arizona extra DUI assessment of $500 and, as previously stated, a minimum of 24 hours in prison up to 10 days in prison, and your license suspension is typically suspended for 90 to up to one year. The court may also require an interlock system to be placed in your vehicle.
For a second offense, obviously, the fines increase. All of the initial previously stated surcharges double. Similar to that, your jail time increases to a minimum of 30 days in jail, maximum of 90 days in jail. There may be community restitution involved. Your license will be suspended for one year. Interlock may be required and you may be required to complete alcohol or other drug screening tests. Thereafter, on your third offense, fines are again doubled and the minimum jail time is approximately four months. The license suspension remains one year. Again, interlock may be required on your vehicle and you may also be required to complete alcohol or drug screenings.
