A person arrested for DUI in Arizona will be processed through both the MVD and the Court, which are mainly separate and distinct processes.  In Arizona, a charge of DUI, extreme DUI or super extreme DUI, is considered a misdemeanor charge and will result in a court proceeding to determine whether the accused is innocent or guilty.

If you are arrested for DUI in Arizona, the law requires you to comply with a breath, blood or urine test to determine your blood alcohol content.  A person who refuses this test will face an automatic one-year driver’s license suspension. After processing is complete, most people will be released and sent home with paperwork informing them of the charges and date of first court appearance.

The first appearance in court, referred to as arraignment, generally occurs within 30 days of a person’s arrest and provides the accused the opportunity to enter a plea of “guilty” or “not guilty.”  Within 45 days of arraignment, a pre-trial conference will take place during which your attorney will attempt to negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecutor on your behalf.  As advised by your attorney, you can either accept the deal or decline it and choose to take your case to trial.

Should you choose to go to trial, you will appear before a judge and a jury who will determine whether you are guilty or not guilty. A finding of guilty will result in penalties that may include jail time, fines, driver’s license suspension, community service, ignition interlock device, probation and drug or alcohol treatment.
