A DUI in Arizona carries stiff penalties but an experienced attorney can help lessen the sentence. DUI fines are expensive and a convictions carries mandatory jail time. In addition, your license may be suspended. Punishments become more serious for second and third offenses.
A first-time offender should expect a minimum 10-day jail sentence and $750 fine. A second offense jumps to 90-day jail sentence and $1,750 in fines. Each conviction also requires alcohol assessments and you should expect driver’s license restrictions. Working with a DUI lawyer, however, can help reduce your fines and jail time.
