Second Offense Misdemeanor DUI Penalties in Arizona

Before you can be charged with a second DUI offense in Arizona, you must have a BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) of .08 to .149 and have a previous DUI conviction on your record. Arizona has a look-back period of seven years after the first DUI conviction. That means your first conviction will remain on your record for seven years. If you are arrested during your look-back period, you will be charged with a second DUI.

Arizona’s DUI laws are strict, and second drunk driving charges are taken very seriously. Compared to the first offense, the second DUI offense carries much stiffer penalties and fines.

What Happens After You are Charged with a Second Offense DUI?

Because each case is different, there is no right answer to what will happen in your situation. The outcome depends on the circumstances of your arrest and your defense strategy. While you will face jail time, you will not necessarily be ordered to go to jail.
