Colorado’s drunk driving laws can be tricky and complex. There’s much more to a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) than whether or not your blood alcohol content was above the legal limit. If you’ve been arrested and charged with DUI, or you just want to be prepared in the unfortunate event that you find yourself pulled over for suspicion of driving under the influence, here are some of the most common DUI questions I get as a Colorado Springs DUI attorney:
You need to begin the process of finding and hiring your DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible after you’ve been charged. As you start your search, here are some tips for selecting the attorney who will stand up for you and stand between you and all the harsh consequences of a DUI conviction.
Even the most accurate scientific instruments can produce inaccurate results if they are used incorrectly, are improperly maintained, or are damaged. The breathalyzers and other breath-testing devices used by Colorado law enforcement to determine the blood alcohol content (BAC) of drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol are no different. While the results of breathalyzer tests can be the key to a drunk driving conviction, proving that those results were flawed and unreliable can be the key to an acquittal or dismissal of the charges. If you are charged with a DUI, contact a criminal defense attorney immediately.
The holidays are upon us and that means that holiday parties are upon us as well. Office parties, gatherings of families and friends, New Year’s Eve festivities – these annual events almost always have one thing in common: booze. Statistics show that the number drunk driving accidents, injuries, and deaths spike during the holiday season. Colorado law enforcement knows this; that’s why they are especially aggressive in going after drunk drivers during this most wonderful time of the year.
It will come as no surprise that driving under the influence (DUI), is the most serious criminal charge you can face for your conduct while behind the wheel in Colorado, especially if someone ends up getting hurt or killed. For many criminal charges, it is often the most prudent strategy to try to get prosecutors to reduce the charges to a lesser offense with less harsh penalties upon conviction. But can that be done with DUI charges? Can you reduce your DUI to a charge of reckless driving?
