DUI for the first time – BAC ranges from 0.08 to 0.149 percent

Standard DUIs involving alcohol are found in ARS 28-1381 (A)(1) and (A)(2) of the Arizona DUI legislation (2). These two sections detail the various ways you can be charged with a standard DUI.

You can be charged with a DUI under paragraph A1 if you have actual physical control operating a vehicle after ingesting any amount of alcohol or drugs.

This clause authorizes the police to charge you with a DUI even if you have a little amount of alcohol or drugs in your system or do not have the results of a chemical test.

If a chemical test within two hours of your arrest shows a BAC of 0.08 percent to 0.149 percent, the police can arrest you for DUI under subsection (A)(2). This is Arizona’s per se DUI law, which means that if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) falls within this range, there will be a presumption that you are impaired by drinking.

In most DUI instances, police officers will cite both subsections. You will only be punished for a single DUI, even if you are convicted under each part.

All DUIs, including first-time standard DUIs, are handled harshly under Arizona DUI regulations. If you are found guilty, you will be sentenced to at least 10 days in prison. The court can, however, defer the sentence for nine days if an alcohol assessment and any prescribed lessons are completed.

Extreme DUI – Blood Alcohol Concentration 0.15% to 0.199%

If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.15 percent to 0.199 percent within two hours of your arrest, you will be charged with an extreme drunk driving crime under Arizona law, according to ARS 28-1382(A) (1).

If this is your first DUI violation in the last seven years, you could face the following penalties if you are convicted:

  • At the very least, 30 days in prison
  • A total of $2,500 in fines and fees
  • Suspension of your driver’s license for a minimum of 90 days
  • Installation of an IID is required for a period of 12 months.
  • Assessment for substance abuse and any classes that may be recommended
  • A five-year probationary sentence is possible.
  • Your license has been docked eight points.
  • SR-22 insurance for traffic survival school

You will be sentenced to 120 days in prison if you receive a second extreme conviction. You’ll also face fines and fees totalling at least $3,700, your driver’s license will be suspended for one year, and you’ll be required to install an IID in your car for the next 18 months.

In addition to performing 30 hours of community service, you will be required to submit to a substance addiction examination, and any treatment that may be suggested.

Super-Extreme DUI – Blood Alcohol Concentration of 0.20% or Higher

A super-extreme DUI can be charged in Arizona if your BAC is at least 0.20 percent, according to ARS 28-1382(A) (2). If you are guilty of a super-extreme offense for the first time, you will be sentenced to 45 days in prison.

You will also be required to pay at least $3,000 in penalties and costs, and your driver’s license will be suspended for at least 90 days. You will be required to install an IID on your own dime, attend traffic survival school, and maybe complete at least 30 hours of community service.

The court has the authority to impose the following potential punishments for a second super-extreme conviction:

  • A six-month prison sentence
  • A total of $4,700 in fines and penalties
  • IID for 24 months after a 12-month suspension of your driver’s license
  • 30 hours of community service is required.
  • A five-year probationary sentence is possible.
  • Assessment and classes for substance abuse
  • School of Traffic Survival

Driving Under the Influence of Drugs

Under Arizona DUI laws, you can be charged with a drugged DUI per ARS 28-1381(A)(3) if a blood or urine test completed within two hours of your arrest reveals the presence of any of the drugs found in ARS 13-3401, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, controlled substances without a prescription, and many others.

If you are convicted of a first drugged DUI in Arizona, you will face the penalties for a regular DUI. However, you might not be ordered to install an IID in your car since it is not required for drugged driving cases.

Arizona Felony Aggravated DUI Charges

In one of the following five scenarios, the police can charge you with aggravated DUI:

  • Getting a DUI while your driver’s license is limited, revoked, or suspended is a serious offense.
  • Getting a DUI while your vehicle is required to have an IID fitted
  • Getting a DUI while driving with someone under the age of 15
  • After seven years, being charged with a third offense
  • Getting a DUI for driving in the wrong direction

It is a Class 6 felony if you are convicted of a DUI while someone under the age of 15 was in your vehicle. Class 4 felony charges are the other forms of aggravated DUIs.

A first aggravated DUI in Arizona is a Class 4 felony that carries a minimum four-month prison term and up to ten years of probation.

The court will also compel you to pay at least $4,700 in penalties and assessments, as well as suspend your license for a year. For the next 24 months, you must install an IID in your vehicles and complete an alcohol assessment and any prescribed treatment.

Well, we aren’t finished yet, but already Mr. Gurion has displayed tolerance, patience, and truly gifted knowledge in his advice and guidance for me in regard to a criminal case that is already complicated but made more frustrating, at best, by my conduct (FTA x 2) thus far.

I’m am truly grateful to have had this gentleman appointed to represent me. Thank You Omer, you have already blessed me more than you could ever know.

He was able to adjust his schedule to accommodate me as well as personally represent me at each court hearing that was requested. He communicated quickly and effectively to me and made sure I had a complete understanding before asking what I wanted to do next.

Omer Ramiro is top notch criminal defense and is very good at what he does. Omer approached my case weighing out every scenario and fully explaining to me what may or may not happen along the way. He really put me at ease during a trying time in my life and applied the right finesse to get me a very acceptable pla that would have been impossible to get on my own. Truly a great outcome for me and I’m very relieved. Bottom line hes very good and would ask for him by name.

I was assigned Omer and I’m very glad for this and would recommend him to anyone needing help. Aside from being good at his job hes actually quite a nice guy also. A+++


Thank you Omer for helping my family and I through the one of the hardest times that we have ever gone through. I had a trial coming up in two weeks in 2 weeks when I made the decision to hire Omer Gurion and that was the best decision I have ever made. Omer prepared himself for my case in only 2 weeks and destroyed the state’s poor case against me. After working with him I can say without a doubt he is undoubtedly one of the best criminal defense attorney’s there is because he is extremely articulate, intelligent and absolutely knows the law inside and out. The jury came back almost immediately with a “not guilty” verdict. I can’t even truly express how relieved I felt at that moment and it is all thanks to Omer and the defense team he works with. I say emphatically that you can count on Omer Gurion.


I was in contact and worked with a couple of attorneys from the Rosenstein Law Group and was provided solid legal services but it wasn’t until I had the privilege of having Mr. Gurion on myside that I felt some bit of peace of mind or a little bit at ease. I’m sure Mr. Gurion had several clients while he was working with me, yet I never felt like just a number to him; I always felt like I was his number one priority. Mr. Gurion was never too busy to reply to an email or answer a call from me. Mr. Gurion was always calm, cool and collected and reassured me that everything was going to be OK for me and my family. Not only did Mr. Gurion reassure me, more importantly he delivered. I am a free man because of Mr. Gurion. If anybody is in need of legal assistance I would without a second thought I would highly recommend Mr. Gurion.


My son had a DUI arrest hanging over his head. We hired Omer to guide us through the process. He carefully outlined and explained all options available. He advised my son on a course of action based on his knowledge of the law and his experience. His advice was spot on. His guidance and responsiveness helped relieve the stress of the situation. We highly recommend Omer. You can put your confidence in him.

I was really in trouble and I wentto Rosenstain Law firm because of it was close by my home. Then I met with Omar and he checked my case and told me all of the things gonna happen . However, he trusts himself a lot which is very important for me. First when I received my warrant he directed me very well and took me out of the jail in 2 hours and reduced the bail from 25 k to $500. And at the end case was dismissed. He always believed me and did his best. I am so sad that I did not meet him before. I would highly recommend to work with him because you can just trust him and don’t keep your mind busy with court. He will do anything for you, and he knows what he is doing very well. I appreciate for all of his afford and making my case so easier.


Omer was not only extremely knowledgeable and efficient as an attorney but was very caring and supportive during a very difficult time for our family. Omer even followed up after the resolution to make sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend Omer Gurion highly. Thank you Omer!
