Out of State DUI Lawyer in Colorado Springs
Legal Guidance and Defense, Just a Phone Call Away: (719) 722-3254
DUI charges are already extremely complex to navigate. For out of state DUI's, the stakes are raised even higher. Not only are there consequences that you may have to face in state you were arrested, but you will also have to deal with the added penalties of your home state's DUI laws.
While this may seem unfair, it is legal under the statewide agreement called the Non-Resident Violator Compact (NRVC). Colorado is a member of the NRVC, so if you were pulled over in another state that is also part of the compact, Colorado will be notified and can opt to penalize you for the DUI as well. This does not mean that you will penalized twice, only that your state can add on any penalties that the other state may not enforce, which is why you should take measures now.
If you were arrested for a DUI out of state, call a Colorado Springs DUI lawyer!
Aggressively Fighting Your DUI Charges
I have more than 15 years of experience representing clients, and can utilize this to your advantage. My knowledge of the law can help form the right defense strategy to withstand your charges. For out of state DUI's, you must take all the necessary precautions to prevent additional penalties and consequences, which can have long-lasting effects.
You could face these penalties for an out of state DUI charge:
- Jail sentencing
- License suspension
- Driving record points
- Community service
- Alcohol monitoring
- Offense reported to your home state
If your home state has NRVC membership, you should know that Colorado penalizes an out-of-state driver under the same laws as a resident, which means a 9-month revocation of your driver's license for a first offense. Non-residents are not allowed to apply to reinstate their license early. This is all the more reason why fighting your charge is more beneficial to you in the long run.
