What Will Happen To Me If I Am Convicted of a DUI For The Fourth Time?
THIS IS MY FORTH DUI OFFENSE, WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE PENALTIES?
Before we can determine what the penalties will be for your fourth offense DUI in Arizona, we must know the date of the fourth violation, the dates of the three prior DUI violations, the status of your driver license, whether you had any restriction(s) on your driver license, your blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of driving and if you had any passengers under the age of 15 in your vehicle.
Depending on the facts of your case, your fourth DUI may be a misdemeanor or a felony.
IS THIS OFFENSE A MISDEMEANOR OR A FELONY?
A misdemeanor: This may be a misdemeanor depending on the timing and disposition of your prior DUIs. If this is your fourth DUI but not your third DUI in 84 months (seven years) and your license is in good standing, there was no one under the age of 15 in the car and you were not required to have an interlock on your vehicle, these facts will make your fourth DUI a misdemeanor.
A felony: This may be a felony if this is your third DUI within 84 months (seven years); you were driving on a suspended, restricted, revoked or canceled driver license; there was someone under the age of 15 in the car; or you were driving DUI in violation of a court restriction (i.e., without an interlock). These facts will make your fourth DUI a felony.
