After drunk driving crash, Arizona man faces manslaughter charges

Arizona has a graduated system of penalties for drunk driving offenses. Depending on the number of prior DUI convictions within a certain number of years, a person could face increasingly more serious charges, including felony DUI. While the potential consequences get worse for defendants as they move up this graduated system, even the lowest-level charge is not a trifle. A first-time DUI charge in Arizona carries with it a mandatory minimum jail term.
