What Is Aggravated DUI?

Have you been charged with aggravated DUI in Arizona? There are a variety of factors that can raise a typical drunk driving charge to an aggravated DUI, but an attorney experienced with felony DUI can help you fight the charges in court.

At the East Valley and Phoenix Law Office of Karl A. Mueller, we represent individuals throughout Arizona who have been charged with aggravated DUI or other drunk driving charges after an arrest.

This Is A Serious Felony Charge

In Arizona, an aggravated DUI is a felony, and if you are convicted, you face an automatic minimum of four months in prison. The threat of prison is far more serious than a jail sentence, and it is important to try to lower the charges you face, in an effort to minimize the potential consequences. Aggravated DUI is a charge of driving while under the influence plus an additional factor, such as:

  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Driving with child under the age of 15 years
  • A third DUI in seven years

Attorney Karl A. Mueller worked on aggravated DUI cases for over five years as an Arizona state prosecutor. He knows the strengths and weaknesses of prosecutors' cases, and he can respond accordingly.

Creating A Strong Defense

The majority of aggravated DUI cases involve a suspended driver's license. In all driver's license suspension cases, the state must prove proper notification of the suspension. The MVD notification process has weaknesses and mistakes are made. Having handled hundreds upon hundreds of these cases, Mr. Mueller is a felony DUI lawyer who understands the MVD processes.

With every aggravated DUI case we handle, we attempt to overcome the charges entirely based on the facts and the law. If we are not able to do so, we try to remove the aggravating factor and reduce the charges to a simple DUI. This could be the difference between one day in jail and four months in prison for driving under the influence.
