Aggravated DUI in Arizona

Our Skilled Tempe DUI Lawyer Can Fight for You

In most circumstances, a drunk driving charge is considered a misdemeanor crime. While misdemeanor crimes can still be very serious, it takes particularly questionable circumstances for the state of Arizona to consider a drunk driving charge a felony. When it does, it is known as aggravated DUI charge.

If you have been charged with aggravated DUI, you could be exposed to particularly serious criminal penalties. At Kent Law PLC, our dedicated Tempe DUI attorney has more than 20 years of experience in the criminal defense arena and knows that it takes to thoroughly challenge the state's case against our clients and ensure the best possible outcome is aggressively pursued.

You do not have to face this uncertain time without a proven legal advocate by your side. Contact our firm today to start exploring you defense options.

When Is a DUI "Aggravated?" in Arizona

For a drunk driving charge to be considered a felony, aggravating conditions must be present in addition to the driver having a .08% (or higher) blood alcohol concentration level. When these conditions exist, the state deems the incident a greater threat to the public and levies stronger charges against the accused. Aggravated DUI charges can be found in Arizona Revised Statute §28-1383.

A DUI is considered aggravated when:

  • The driver is found to have suspended/revoked/restricted license.
  • The driver is found to have been issued an ignition interlock device.
  • The driver has already had two prior DUI convictions in the last seven years.
  • The driver is found to have a minor in the vehicle.

Depending on the circumstances listed above, an aggravated DUI can be considered either a Class 4 or a Class 6 felony. For more information on the penalties that can come with these felony convictions and what our firm can do to help you effectively fight your charges, contact us at Kent Law PLC today.

Success Stories
from Our Clients

  • They were always polite and patient, and did their best on behalf of my father.

    “Mr. Kent and his staff were very successful in assisting my father in a lawsuit which ended in a result that was much more successful than what we imagined.”

    Former Client

  • I highly, highly, highly recommend Adam Kent.

    “I highly, highly, highly recommend Adam Kent. I was charged with Dog at Large in Chandler (crazy neighbor….long story). The neighbor was seeking restitution, to get rid of my dog, etc. While Mr. Kent and I agreed it was a ridiculous charge he took on my case and fought hard. I was thoroughly impressed with how much time and effort he put into my case. In the end I paid a small fine, paid no restitution and was able to keep my dog. There is no way that would have been the outcome if it hadn’t been for Mr. Kent. I cannot recommend him enough. Mr. Kent is a fighter and he made me feel like I was his most important case.”

    Lynn

  • You provided us with a lot of information and guidance. I will recommend you to my friends and family.

    “Thank you for meeting with my husband and I about our hit and run accident. You provided us with a lot of information and guidance. Even though we did not meet the requirements to move forward you were honest and provided us with many options. Thank you for offering to continue to help us should we require it. I will recommend you to my friends and family should they require legal assistance with an accident or injury.”

    Roxanne

  • In the end I was very happy with outcome. Mr. Kent and his staff worked hard and did a great job.
