Escalating penalties for second-time DUI

In Arizona, a second non-extreme DUI conviction carries increased penalties compared to your first offense. The "lookback period" - that is, the length of time in which prior convictions are considered for sentencing purposes - is seven years.

If you have one prior DUI conviction in the last seven years, you could face the following penalties:

  • 90 days in jail. The first 30 are mandatory, but the last 60 may be suspended if you complete the mandatory alcohol screening classes.
  • A minimum fine of $2,500.00.
  • Revocation of your driving privileges for at least one year.
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device, at your expense, for at least one year.
  • Community service.
  • Probation.

The stakes are high, and your crisis could have consequences outside the criminal justice system. You could lose your job, especially if you need to drive for work purposes. Your family and future career prospects could be affected.
