Can I be charged for a DUI even if I was not cited?

Many times clients come to us asking if they can still be charged for a DUI even if they were not cited at the scene or mobile DUI processing van when a blood sample was taken. The short answer is yes. David explains it in more detail in this video. Depending on the city or jurisdiction there may also be a delay in filing charges.

If you weren’t charged at the scene, in Arizona for a misdemeanor DUI you likely will be charged 4 to 6 months later. The State of Arizona has up to a year for which they can charge you with a misdemeanor DUI.

If you weren’t charged at the scene and qualify for a Felony or Aggravated DUI in Arizona, it could be 6 to 9 months later before you are charged. The State of Arizona has up to 7 years to decide whether or not to bring charges on a Felony DUI.

Many times this can be handled as a Pre-Charge case which can prevent it from ever showing on your record at all. Click here to learn more about Pre-Charge DUI cases on our main website at DMCantor.com.

If any of these situations apply to you, please give us a call 24 hours a day at (602) 560-4004. The chances are really good that we will be able to help you with your DUI case. You may also send us an email through our secure form.
