With Arizona’s strict DUI laws, it seems inconceivable that an individual would rack up so many DUIs over a certain period of time. However, as is the case with Brandon Moore, an individual with such a record won’t get away with it for long. Read along as we explore what happened and how you can defend yourself from repeat offense convictions.
Brandon Moore, 41, was recently arrested on suspicion of drunk driving for the 5th time in as little as five years, near Kingman, AZ. Moore was arrested on DUI charges a total of four times before, in 2010, 2011, and 2014 (two DUIs in 2014).
Deputies flagged Moore when he started to drift into oncoming traffic on the road, and when pulled over they noticed the smell of alcohol in his car. After a series of field sobriety test, he was taken to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office with a .115% blood alcohol concentration.
Moore was charged with aggravated DUI with suspended license and aggravated DUI for three or more DUIs.
In Arizona, being a repeat offender for DUI is taken very seriously. It can result in extremely high fines, some jail time, and the installation of an ignition interlock device. This device monitors your blood alcohol and can track your movements via GPS, but it allows you to continue driving even after a repeat DUI.
However, just like Brandon Moore, if you are charged with aggravated DUI for a third time, this charge becomes a felony with the possibility of even more restrictions and punishments. That’s where we step in.
