Aggravated DUI is a felony and much more serious type of DUI charge. There are three different ways DUI can become Aggravated DUI:
- Getting charged with DUI while having two prior DUI convictions within seven years
- Getting charged with DUI while having a suspended, restricted or revoked driver’s license
- Getting charged with DUI while having an underage passenger in the vehicle
This page will discuss Aggravated DUI charges that occur as the result of having two other DUI convictions on your record within a seven year period. If you receive a third DUI charge during this period, it will become an Aggravated DUI charge. Aggravated DUI is considered to be a class 4 felony, and as with other felony charges, the consequences are more severe.
If convicted of Aggravated DUI in Phoenix, you face the following penalties:
- Minimum of 4 months in the Arizona state prison
- Fines reaching up to $ 150,000
- Probation for a maximum of 10 years
- 3 year License Revocation
- Ignition Interlock on your vehicle
- Forfeiture of your vehicle
