A: If he is found guilty, DUI in Arizona carried mandatory minimum jail time. A first offense extreme DUI with a BAC above 0.15 carries mandatory minimum jail time of 30 days with the judge having discretion to suspend all but 9 days with an interlock. A super extreme DUI with a BAC above 0.20 carried a mandatory minimum of 45 days with all but 14 days suspended with an interlock. Many jurisdictions will allow home detention for most but not all of the jail time. DUI also carries mandatory alcohol counseling and fines.
