What You Can Expect in your DUI Case
In Colorado, a drunk driving (DUI) or drugged driving (DUI-D) allegation is a criminal charge that carries the possibility of incarceration and revocation of your driver’s license. Colorado DUI laws require mandatory incarceration for repeat offenders, and for first offenses in certain aggravated cases. Some judges impose incarceration for first DUI, DUI-D, and DWAI convictions. A guilty verdict or bad plea bargain will stick with you for the rest of your life. If you were recently charged with Driving Under the Influence, you may have as little as seven days to act or else your driver’s license will be revoked.
