In Arizona, Super Extreme DUI is a charge that applies when a person is caught driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.20% or higher. This is a more serious charge than both standard and Extreme DUI, and the penalties are correspondingly more severe. Here are some important things to know about Super Extreme DUI in Arizona:
- Criminal Penalties: If a person is convicted of Super Extreme DUI in Arizona, they can face criminal penalties such as jail time, fines, probation, and community service. For a first-time offense, the minimum jail sentence is 45 days, with a maximum of six months and the driver’s license will be suspended for 90 days.
- Ignition Interlock Device: In Arizona, an ignition interlock device (IID) is mandatory for Super Extreme DUI convictions. The IID is a breathalyzer device that is installed in the person’s vehicle and requires them to blow into it before the car will start. The device must remain on the vehicle for a minimum of 18 months.
- DUI Education and Treatment: A person who is convicted of Super Extreme DUI in Arizona will be required to attend DUI education and treatment programs as a condition of their sentence. These programs are designed to help the person address issues related to alcohol use and prevent future DUI incidents.
- Enhanced Penalties for Repeat Offenders: If a person is convicted of Super Extreme DUI more than once, the penalties become more severe. For example, a second conviction within seven years carries a mandatory jail sentence of 180 days, and a third conviction within seven years is a felony offense with a mandatory minimum prison sentence of four months.
