DUI Vs. Aggravated DUI

Generally, you are considered driving while under the influence if your BAC levels are at .08 percent or above. You could be charged with an aggravated DUI if the following were factors surrounding your arrest.

  • Speeding - If during your arrest, you driving a certain amount over the speed limit, you could be charged with an aggravated DUI.
  • High BAC - In Nebraska, if you blow over a .15 percent BAC at the time of your arrest, you would be eligible for aggravated DUI.
  • Driving with Minors - Driving while under the influence with minors in the vehicle is another aggravating factor for DUI.
  • Previous DUI Convictions - If you have been convicted of DUI in the last 10 years since your most recent arrest, police can use this as an aggravating factor to increase penalties you face.
  • Driving on a Suspended License - If you are caught driving under the influence with a suspended or revoked license, you could be charged with an aggravated DUI. Driving on a suspended license shows a blatant disregard for the law.
