If you are severely intoxicated at the time of your drunk driving arrest, a conviction will result in stiff consequences at sentencing. It’s going to cost you thousands of dollars and jail time. Contact the Glendale extreme DUI lawyers at The Law Offices of John Phebus as soon as possible to protect your rights. As experienced DUI defense attorneys, we tackle extreme DUI cases for clients across Maricopa, Yuma, Pinal, and Yavapai counties.
Under Arizona law, a person can be charged with extreme DUI if he or she has a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .15 or greater within two hours of driving a motor vehicle. Arizona recently created a new category of super extreme DUI for persons with a BAC of .20 or greater.
After examining the State’s case against you, our Glendale criminal defense lawyers can advise you about the merits of going to trial versus seeking a plea agreement to a lesser charge. If you are only slightly over the .15 BAC limit, our attorneys may be able to convince prosecutors to reduce the charge to DUI with a BAC of .08, (standard DUI or per se DUI), which carries considerably lighter penalties.
Contesting the extreme DUI in court carries the risk of conviction at higher penalties, but there is much at stake even if you plead to a lower charge. There are many reasons why your BAC might register artificially high, and we will thoroughly examine your case for any grounds for dismissing or reducing the charges.
