3 things to consider regarding DUI Conviction in Arizona
- Driving or Physical Control of Vehicle – The defendant doesn’t necessarily have to be “driving” the vehicle/the vehicle does not have to be in motion in order for them to be considered “in control” of the vehicle.
- Impairment – Many people think that their BAC determines their level of impairment, but that is not true. The state must only prove that the driver was impaired to any degree by the influence of alcohol, another drug or metabolite of the drug.
- Mental State – The State does Not have to prove that the driver had intent to drive under the influence. Proof of intent or mental state is not required to convict somebody of DUI.
