Advice About DUI Penalties

If you are convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) in Colorado, the severity of the penalties will depend on several factors, including evidence of the level of intoxication, previous DUI convictions, injuries or damage caused, the status of your driver’s license and your age. If you or a loved one has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, an experienced DUI defense attorney can help you understand the charges and the potential penalties, which can include:

  • The loss of your driver’s license
  • The loss of your job
  • Increased insurance premiums
  • Fines that can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device, with installations of up to two years in cases involving blood alcohol content (BAC) above .17 percent
  • Jail time, particularly when BAC of .20 percent and multiple offenses are involved, with mandatory minimum sentences imposed in some cases
