Arizona Extreme DUI (0.15 to 0.20 BAC) and Super Extreme DUI (0.20+ BAC)
It’s well known that Arizona has the most severe jail time minimums in the nation for a super extreme and extreme DUI. However, few people realize how far reaching and severe the consequences of an extreme DUI or super extreme DUI can be. Even if the jail time can be reduced by dismissal of charges, the MVD penalties, fines, and fees can follow an individual for years.
If you have been charged with an Extreme DUI (under Arizona DUI law ARS 28-1382) or Super Extreme DUI (under Arizona DUI law ARS 28-1382A2) in the Greater Phoenix Area, there’s actually no reason you have to face conviction at all — the Law Office of Daniel Hutto works diligently in helping people just like you get their extreme and super extreme DUI charges dismissed or dramatically reduced, and we do this by crafting an Arizona DUI defense that is based entirely on your unique circumstances and those of no one else.

There’s a lot for you to learn, examine, and understand about Arizona DUI laws if you have been charged with an extreme or super extreme DUI. Defenses related to being in Actual Physical Control of the vehicle occur often as police agencies are arresting individuals for simply being in a car after drinking, not actually driving:
- Determining whether or not you had Actual Physical Control (APC) of the vehicle at the time of your arrest has many critical factors
- Knowing what kind of effect, the time of day could have had on your charge
- Whether or not the vehicle was stopped and/or whether or not the ignition was running
- Whether or not you voluntarily pulled over at the time of the charge making your car a temporary shelter
These are just a few potential factors that can have an impact on your case and are therefore variables that our criminal DUI attorneys will want to discuss with you before determining how they will fight your case in court.
