About James E. Novak
Aggravated driving under the influence (DUI or DWI) in Phoenix is usually more serious than driving under the influence and can involve a number of offenses. A conviction for this offense can result in very severe penalties, including installation of an ignition interlock device, mandatory prison sentences, steep fines and assessments, a criminal record and/or an inability to own or possess a firearm.
Criminal charges for an aggravated DUI offense do not have to result in a conviction. The prosecutor must prove you committed every element of the DUI offense beyond a reasonable doubt before you can be convicted. If the judge or jury has even the slightest doubt, the charges against you may be reduced or even dismissed. Therefore, it is essential to hire an experienced DUI defense attorney in Phoenix to help you create your best defense.
