What Makes a DUI an "Aggravated DUI"?


A person who is convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs will face severe DUI penalties in the state of Arizona. When certain circumstances occur in conjunction with this DUI offense, a person may be charged with an “Aggravated DUI”, which has far more severe consequences than a 1st time DUI. The DUI lawyer Mesa and Gilbert residents rely on when they are in a legal bind is Charlie Naegle, criminal defense attorney at Naegle & Crider Criminal Defense Attorneys.

An Aggravated DUI can be charged when:

  • A passenger under the age of 15 is in the car with the intoxicated driver,
  • An intoxicated driver is illegally driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, or
  • This offense is a driver’s third DUI within the last 7 years.

It is important to understand that an Aggravated DUI is a serious felony. The consequences may vary depending on the case and how effective your legal representation is. Possible penalties for such crimes include:

  • A minimum of 4 months in state prison
  • Up to $150,000 in fines
  • Revocation of driving privileges for up to 3 years
  • Probation for up to 5 years
