College DUI in Arizona what you need to know
Hi, I’m Scott Maasen, with the Maasen Law Firm, and today I want to talk to you about DUIs, and specifically people that get DUIs in college, or underage DUIs.
Lots of Colleges, Lots of College DUI’s in Arizona
You know, Arizona obviously has a lot of universities: ASU, U of A, a lot of the community colleges, and the other schools here. I mean, we’ve got hundreds of thousands of students in our state. And it’s quite common, when school starts in the fall and in the spring, with a lot of the DUI enforcement patrols and the task force to arrest a number of underage and college students getting DUI charges. Now, when you’re underage, or if you’re in college, the DUI charges are a little different than if you were older. Their penalties are different. There’s different jail, there’s different fines, there’s different license suspension. There are a number of things that you have to understand and you need to deal with very quickly because there’s some time deadlines, and things you need to do fairly soon when you get this type of a ticket.
