Arizona Has Tough DUI Laws and Punishment
While there is uniformity among the laws in Arizona with respect to DUI charges, Tempe prosecutors and judges have discretion. Prosecutors have discretion in what charges are asserted against you and what plea bargains they can offer. Judges have discretion in accepting or rejecting plea bargains and increasing penalties or certain terms contained in a plea bargain. As such, Tempe is tough on DUIs and seeks to increase punishment for these crimes. As such, it is important to have proper representation. It is important for you to contact Tait & Hall so that we can provide you with the best defense possible.
Mandatory DUI Penalties
Because Tempe takes DUIs very seriously, judges have mandatory DUI penalties, which include jail, counseling, fines and fees, revocation of your driving privileges, and placement of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle that you are responsible for paying. Tempe judges also have discretion during sentencing where they can have you participate in a MADD program, and community service, and even place you on probation.
Legal Defense Against Arizona Drug DUI
Drug DUIs have two types which are being impaired to the slightest degree by a drug and having a controlled drug or metabolite in your system. As such, DUIs are also associated with illegal drugs like marijuana or even a legal drug with a valid prescription. Tempe police officers frequently charge people with these types of DUIs, and, in those cases, a blood or urine sample is taken from you and tested.
