What Will Happen To Me If I Am Convicted of a DUI For The First Time?
The Amount of Alcohol in Your Blood Determines Your Penalty
If this is your first DUI in 84 months (seven years), the court will look at how the State charged you as well as your blood alcohol content (BAC) or the presence of any illegal or prescription drugs in your system at the time of the arrest.
Read your charges, which can be found on your traffic citation or in your Information (an Information is a type of legal document used to press charges against you) or indictment. To determine your penalty, use our penalties chart found in our book DUI: The Next Day to determine possible penalties, which are based on how you have been charged by the State.
How Do I Read the Ticket to make sure that I am doing everything correctly?
If you have been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor DUI and you are an Arizona resident, you will most likely receive a traffic citation and be released to a taxi cab or friends.
