What is the difference between an Aggravated DUI and an Extreme DUI?

In Arizona, an "Aggravated" DUI is a felony. A DUI can be charged as an Aggravated DUI when the following situations apply:

  1. A child under 15 years old was in the car;
  2. A person's driver's license was suspended, revoked, or restricted at the time of the DUI;
  3. A person has two prior DUI convictions within the last 84 months (7 years).

An "Extreme" DUI is related to the blood/breath alcohol test results.  If a person has a test result of a .15 BAC (blood alcohol concentration) or above, then the person can be charged with Extreme DUI.  An Extreme DUI conviction comes with increased penalties but is still a misdemeanor.  If a person has a test result of a .20 BAC or above, then the person can be charged with "Super Extreme DUI" and the penalties are further increased.
