What is a "Super" Extreme DUI?

The "Super" Extreme DUI is a relatively new creation by the Arizona State Legislature.  The language of the statute does not actully refer to the word "super."  Most attorneys have simply adopted this name because of the harsh "super" jail sentence that can result from a conviction of this law.

To be convicted of this law a person must be proven to have been driving and have a blood alcohol concentration of .200 or above.  The resulting jail term, which is only one of several penalties, is a minimum of 45 days.  The good news regarding this statute is there are several cases currently challanging the legality of the statute.
