This is largely due to the extreme public pressure that has been placed on Arizona legislators, prosecutors, and the courts to impose stiffer penalties for driving under the influence.
As a result, the days of simply paying a fine and giving up your right to drive for a short period of time are over.
Every state deals with DUI’s differently, but Arizona has some of the most severe punishments for convictions such as mandatory jail time, heavy fines, driver’s license suspension and an ignition interlock device for every alcohol-related conviction, even a first offense!
As a result, you need to take immediate action to secure the help of an experienced Phoenix criminal defense attorney.
