First DUI Offense in Scottsdale

Arizona DUI Defense Lawyer

Under Arizona law, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher. If you are an underage driver, any BAC above .00 can result in DUI charges thanks to the state's zero-tolerance laws. Whether you're underage or not, you will be facing some serious consequences for a first DUI offense.

Call the Law Offices of Randall J. Craig 24/7 to enlist the experienced DUI attorney you need if you've been charged with drunk driving in Arizona.

Penalties for a First DUI Offense

According to the law, if you are found to be in control of a vehicle with a BAC of .08 or higher or are found to be impaired by any amount of alcohol or drugs, you could be arrested and charged with driving under the influence. This is considered a Class 1 misdemeanor, so long as there are no aggravating factors.

For a first offense, you will be facing the following penalties:

  • Between 24 hours and six months in jail
  • Fines from $250 to $2,500
  • Potential community service
  • Up to a year-long driver's license suspension
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device

If you have a BAC of .15 or higher, you will face charges for extreme DUI, which can carry more severe penalties and consequences. Additionally, if there was any accident that led to property damage or injury, you will face further repercussions.
