By James Novak

Arizona has many different levels of DUI charges including “Extreme DUI” and “Super Extreme DUI.” Both of these Arizona DUI offenses are higher charges in relation to the range penalties associated with an Arizona Misdemeanor DUI offense. These or any DUI, for that matter in Arizona are very serious offenses.

First a word of caution…you should think twice before you decide to defend your DUI charges on your own. Arizona has the toughest DUI laws in the country and they are constantly changing. You should consult a well versed, experienced Arizona DUI Defense Attorney to defend your DUI charges. Currently the following explains differences between penalties including fines, fees, incarceration and other punishments associated with the two:

Arizona Extreme DUI

Getting charged with an extreme DUI in Phoenix or anywhere in Arizona you will face charges if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.15% or greater. At this point, the driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle is severely compromised.

A first time Arizona Extreme is punishable by:

  •  A 90-day driver’s license suspension
  • Up to 5 years probation
  •  30 to 180 days in jail
  •  Fines and fees
  •  Mandatory participation in an alcohol treatment program
  •  Installation of an ignition interlock device in any car that you drive

A second Arizona Extreme conviction will result in even greater penalties, including:

  •  A 1-year driver’s license revocation
  •  Up to 5 years probation
  •  60 days jail, 280 days total
  •  Fines and fees
  •  Mandatory participation in an alcohol treatment program
  •  Installation of an ignition interlock device in any car that you drive

Arizona Super Extreme DUI

In Arizona you will get a Super Extreme charge if you are found operating a vehicle with a BAC level of 0.20% or greater. This is the most serious misdemeanor Arizona DUI. A conviction results in much higher penalties, including:

  •  Driver’s license suspension/revocation
  •  Up to 5 years probation
  • 45 days to 180 days in jail
  •  Fines and fees
  •  Mandatory participation in an alcohol treatment program
  •  Installation of an ignition interlock device for 18 months

If you have received a second Super Extreme, the penalties will be even greater including a mandatory 180 days in jail.
