Penalties for OUI in Arizona

The penalties and charges you may face for operating a watercraft while intoxicated will vary depending on your level of intoxication and your history of prior offenses. If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) registered in excess of 0.08% but less than 0.15%, the penalties you face may include:

First offense:

  • A class 1 misdemeanor charge
  • Up to six months in jail
  • Up to $2,100 in fines

Second offense within five years:

  • A class 1 misdemeanor charge
  • At least 90 days in jail
  • Up to $2,500 in fines

Third offense within five years:

  • A possible felony charge
  • At least 6 months in jail
  • Alcohol screening classes
  • Up to $2,500 in fines

If your BAC registers above 0.15%, you may be charged with extreme OUI and face harsher consequences. Regardless of the specifics, however, any OUI offense is a serious matter and must be handled by a skilled legal professional in order to be successfully defended against. Naegle Law Firm can review the facts of your case and determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
