Charles Barkley pleads Guilty to DUI

According to news reports today, former NBA star and TV personality, Charles Barkley, pled guilty to DUI in Scottsdale, Arizona. He is set to begin a five day jail sentence on March 21st. He must also pay fines totalling approximately $2000, attend an alcohol treatment program and install an ignition interlock device on his vehicles. According to Court records, Barkley had a blood-alcohol level of .149%.

The penalties are not in keeping with what you would expect for a DUI in Los Angeles or Orange County with similar circumstances. Jail time would not normally be imposed and an ignition interlock device is not normally required on a first offense. However, Courts are increasingly looking to impose more than the standard minimum penalties and this makes it more important than ever to consult with an experienced DUI attorney.
