DUI offenses in Colorado are serious. Recall that the legal limit for blood alcohol content (BAC) in the state is 0.08, and those who exceed 0.20 could face even stricter than standard penalties. The sentencing for a DUI charge could range from jail time to fines to license suspension, depending on the severity of the incident and the defendant’s criminal history:
- First offense – $600-$1,000 in fines; 5 days to 1 year in jail; 0-2 years of probation
- Second offense – $600-$1,500 in fines; 10 days to 1 year in jail; 2-4 years of probation
- Third offense – $600-$1,500 in fines; 60 days to 1 year in jail; 2-4 years of probation
The judge can also order community service, license revocation for a specified duration, and a mandatory drug and alcohol evaluation. Our firm can help you request a DMV hearing to challenge a license revocation or argue for mitigated charges. Don’t let a DUI charge take away your right to drive in the future; contact Curtis Law Firm to get started today.
Curtis Law Firm also represents clients dealing with traffic-related violations, such as minor infractions and even felony accidents. Incidents like speeding or seatbelt violations may merely warrant a ticket, but more serious charges like DUI or reckless driving could result in severer penalties and associated criminal charges.
Keep in mind that Colorado penalizes drivers guilty of traffic violations with fines, jail time, and points on their license. Be aware that accumulating 12 points within 12 months or 18 points within 24 months could result in license revocation for at least 1 year.
