Penalties For A Felony Third-Offense Aggravated DUI In Arizona

An Aggravated DUI is defined by A.R.S. 28-1383 and is considered a Felony DUI charge. A First-Offense Aggravated DUI is a Felony and carries a mandatory prison sentence of 4 months. A Second Offense Aggravated DUI charge in Arizona carries even harsher penalties, from 2.25 years to a maximum of 7.5 years in prison.

A DUI will be charged as an Aggravated Felony DUI if it occurs within 7 years of a previous DUI or any DUI in which your driver’s license was suspended. It could be due to an unpaid ticket, and getting charged with a DUI on a suspended license will result in an Aggravated Felony DUI.

What is a Third-Offense Felony DUI?

A Third-Offense Felony DUI means you have two prior felony convictions. They don’t necessarily have to be for Aggravated DUI. They can be for anything. It could be a prior felony for possession of marijuana or it could even be a prior felony for a theft. Even if the offender was never sentenced to any jail sentence as a result of the prior felonies, a third-offense Aggravated felony DUI will carry mandatory prison sentence.

A Third-Offense Aggravated DUI in Arizona carries harsher penalties than a first and second offense Aggravated Felony DUI. Similar to the penalties of a First-Offense Aggravated DUI Charge or a Second-Offense Aggravated DUI Charge, a third offense Aggravated DUI charge also carries harsh penalties. A summary of the penalties for a Third-Offense Aggravated DUI charge in Arizona are listed below:

  • Mandatory prison sentence of a minimum of 6 years
  • A maximum prison sentence of up to 15 years
  • Loss of driver’s license for at least 3 years
  • Supervised probation after release
  • The probation requires monthly visits to the police station, monthly probation fees and consent to submit to random urine analysis
  • The offender is also required to enroll in an alcohol screening program and take alcohol abuse classes

The fines are automatically waived in a third-offense Aggravated DUI. Your mortgage will be gone. In most cases, your family will be gone by the time you finish the jail sentence. If you have young kids, they will all be grown up by the time you’ll finish your jail sentence.

In most counties, the offer made to offenders in these cases is 6 years in prison.

“I am one of only a handful of Phoenix DUI Lawyers that focuses solely on DUI Defense representation.”

I have spent my entire career focused on DUI Defense representation, having defended more than 4,100+ DUI clients in the past 18+ years.

If you’re looking for a divorce attorney, tax attorney, or civil attorney, then I can comfortably say: “I’m not the one for you”.

Coming up with traditional, as well as outside-the-box motions and defenses for my clients, often with good results, is the hallmark of my practice.

Lawyers that say they are “aggressive”, or “will fight for you”, are a dime a dozen. They use these phrases because that is what they think people want to hear. The truth of the matter is, being “aggressive” rarely gets the client anywhere in these court systems. Being “aggressive” isn’t the same as being good.

The same is true for the lawyers that claim to do DUI Defense… and Criminal Cases…, and Accident cases…, and Divorces. A Jack-of-all-Trades is a master of none. By handling all different sorts of cases, they take away from their ability to truly focus on DUIs, and keep up to date on the latest changes in DUI Defense Representation.

What I offer is intelligent, quality DUI defense, at an exceptional price.

I am one of only a handful of Phoenix DUI Lawyers that focuses solely on DUI Defense representation.

I have not only taught other lawyers how to do DUI Defense Representation at statewide seminars, but I produce DUI Legal Guides used by defense lawyers across Arizona.
