Many motorists in the Denver area and across Colorado who have never been stopped by a police officer and been investigated for or arrested on a drinking-related offense might reasonably think that there is just a single charge associated with over-imbibing on the road.
Too many parents in Colorado have gotten the call that they dread: their child has been arrested for breaking the law. In these situations, parents can go through a whirlwind of emotions right away. They can experience feelings of fear, anger, anxiety, confusion and disappointment all within a short period of time.
Kids make mistakes. As much as many parents would like to ignore or deny this fact, it is true. As teens, people may be more likely to succumb to peer pressure and engage in reckless behaviors, which is why many young people experiment with drinking alcohol before the age of 21.
