- Q. DUI - Impaired to the slightest degree citation (BAL < 0.08). When will my license be suspended?
- A: If you are found guilty of DUI impaired to the slightest degree you will get a 90 day license suspension + a 1 year interlock requirement by MVD. The suspension will happen after you are found guilty of DUI on your court case because MVD will receive an abstract from the Court saying you were found guilty. Because the State does not get a presumption of impairment with an alcohol content below 0.08, it is normally not advisable to take a plea that involves pleading guilty to DUI with an alcohol content below a 0.08 if no drugs are present. You definitely should speak with a lawyer to discuss further. Many firms offer free consultations.
- Q. I'm trying to educated my 17 year old daughter of the legal consequences of driving while high on marijuana.
- A: Great place to look is Chapter 4, Title 28 of the Arizona Revised Statutes. It's available online to the public at https://www.azleg.gov/arsDetail/?title=28
- Q. My husband was just picked up on a warrant for an aggravated DUI that he did not even know about.
- A: There was likely a medical blood draw that was used by police to determine the presence of alcohol and/or drugs. Normally a single vehicle collision on its own will not be sufficient to be allege the DUI as aggravated so more information would be needed. The best advice I can give is to consult a criminal defense attorney immediately as it is not a good idea to include too much information on here which is publicly available. Many firms, including mine, will offer a free consultation.
