Is DUI a Crime?
Yes, DUI is classified as a criminal offense in the state of Arizona. Many people do not realize that DUI qualifies as a crime and results in a criminal record. If you are convicted of DUI, you may be penalized with probation, fines, and possibly even jail time. You will be required to report a conviction when you apply for a job, a home mortgage, other loans, or to a college or university. Having a DUI on your record can hurt your ability to advance in your career and could limit your future options.
