What happens if I plead guilty to an Arizona criminal traffic violation? Will I go to jail?

You could go to jail, depending on the type of infraction. While pleading guilty might seem like the easiest option when accused of a criminal traffic violation, it could lead to further problems.

According to the Superior Court of Arizona in Maricopa County, some of the penalties you might face if you plead guilty include:

  • Suspension of your driving privileges
  • Traffic points on your record
  • A fine
  • Community service
  • Jail time

Keep in mind that there could be further consequences of pleading guilty to a criminal traffic offense. For example, a violation could result in higher insurance rates and a criminal record.
