If the at-fault driver is accused of committing a crime – such as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol – normally that person will be prosecuted.
In some cases, a driver who breaks the law will be offered a plea bargain – a reduced sentence in exchange for pleading guilty and avoiding a trial.
The other driver’s lawyer may also be able to get the case thrown out before trial, for a variety of reasons. To learn more about DUI penalties in Arizona, please click here.
