Have You Gotten Your 2nd DUI In Arizona?

Stop and think for a minute. 2nd DUIs and extreme DUIs are prosecuted more severely, so make sure you protect yourself. There are a few different scenarios for a 2nd DUI in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the state of Arizona:

Second Offense (Non-Extreme DUI)

It happens more than once; the effects can further tarnish a person’s future. Multiple DUI’s carry penalties that worsen with each subsequent charge within seven years of the previous. While a first offense can result in severe penalties, multiple offenses significantly raise the DUI penalties you face.

Along with the very severe criminal penalties you may experience, there are a number of other collateral consequences you may face. A Second Offense Non-Extreme DUI on your driving record will result in a revocation of your driving privilege and will most likely affect your ability to gain employment in certain industries.

A Second Offense Non-Extreme DUI can impact a person’s professional license through certain licensing boards. It can affect a person’s ability to obtain or keep a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). (A second conviction for DUI will result in a lifetime disqualification of a person’s CDL.) Penalties for a first conviction are tough, but the criminal penalties for a Second Offense Extreme DUI become exponentially worse, so you want us fighting for you.

Penalties

  1. Minimum 90 days jail with 60 suspended upon completion of alcohol screening and treatment.
  2. Minimum $500 fine plus 84% surcharge.
  3. At least 30 hours of community service.
  4. Assessments: $1250 to PCF and $1250 to PSEF
  5. The Ignition Interlock Device for 12 months pursuant to ARS § 28-3319.
  6. Any jail fees.
  7. Revocation of Driving Privilege.
  8. 8 points on your MVD record.

Second Offense Extreme DUI

The State of Arizona vigorously prosecutes all DUI’s, including Second Offense Extreme DUI’s. If convicted of a second Extreme DUI within seven years of another DUI, the penalties can be very severe:

Penalties

  1. Minimum 120 days jail.
  2. Minimum $500 fine plus surcharges.
  3. Assessments: $1250 to PCF and $1250 to PSEF
  4. An additional $250 assessment.

Penalties

  1. Minimum 180 days jail (The Max).
  2. Minimum $1000 fine plus 84% surcharge.
  3. Assessments: $1250 to PCF and $1250 to PSEF.
