We know from our experience that the sooner you act and game plan for the future, the better off you will be moving forward.
One of your likely concerns is your driver’s license. There are two types of cases in a Colorado DUI case: the court case and the DMV hearing. The Department of Revenue Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has jurisdiction over your driving privilege, while the County or District Court is where the criminal charges that have been filed against you are decided. You need a defense for both cases, but the DMV hearing is only held if you properly and timely request it – usually within 7 days of arrest. For this reason, guidance from an attorney experienced in Colorado DUI cases is invaluable in these first few days.
Another concern you likely have, especially if you have a prior conviction for a similar charge in your past, is incarceration. In Colorado, all DUI or DWAI convictions require mandatory jail time that cannot be suspended, unless it is a first offense with a BAC under 0.200. Depending on the amount of prior offenses a person has, DUI can be charged as a felony in Colorado as well.
