Aggravated DUI AZ explanation video
Hi. I’m Scott Maasen with the Maasen Law Firm. Today, I want to talk about aggravated DUI or felony DUI in Arizona.
An aggravated DUI is a class four felony charge. It’s not a misdemeanor. It’s a felony which is a more serious offense. In Arizona, there are three ways you get an aggravated DUI charge.
- The first is you have … it’s your third DUI offense within seven years. It’s two prior DUIs and this is the third.
- The second way is you get a DUI as a first offense but you have a bad license. Either your license is suspended, restricted, refused, immediate … somehow restricted your license when you get a DUI.
- The third and final way is you get a DUI as a first offense but you have children or more than one children in the car under the age of 15 years old.
Those are three ways to get an aggravated DUI charge in Arizona. They are very serious. Like I said, it’s a felony charge. You really need to understand what your options are and what could be done with that.
I’m going to talk in more detail in some other videos about each specific charge.
If something like that applies to you and you have questions about that, feel free to call me anytime even afterhours is fine. I’d be happy to talk with you. We offer free consultation to go over what your rights and what your options are if you got an aggravated DUI charge.
