What Is the Legal Limit for Alcohol in Colorado?

Colorado has been cracking down hard on drunk and drugged drivers. You could be arrested for DUI if you were “substantially incapable” of operating a vehicle after you consumed alcohol, drugs or prescription medications, or your blood alcohol concentration was at or above .08%.

What Are the Consequences of DUI in Colorado Springs?

The total costs of a first DUI conviction can reach $10,270.

These penalties can include:

  • Class I misdemeanor traffic offense on your record
  • Loss of license or suspended driving privileges
  • Mandatory ignition interlock device for up to 24 months
  • Imprisonment ranging between 5 days to 1 year
  • Probation regarding your driving privileges
  • First conviction fine ranging between $600 and $1,000
  • Alcohol education classes for up to 12 months ($150 to $1,000)
  • Between 48 and 96 hours of community service

First-Time DUI Offense

If you are convicted of your first DUI offense, you face a long road ahead. Your auto insurance premium may increase by around $3,000 and you could be forced to pay a host of other fees.

Not only that, but you could potentially lose your job and your freedom. Penalties increase when facing multiple DUI offenses, underage offenses, or if there is a child in the car while driving under the influence.

DUI Defense Strategies For Your Case

If you’ve been arrested for DUI, you should learn about all of the defenses that may be available to you. By mounting a strong defense, we may be able to persuade the prosecution to reduce the charges, if not drop them altogether, thereby preventing the negative consequences of a DUI conviction. As a Colorado Springs DUI attorney, I understand the scientific and legal processes of a DUI case.

Some of the most common ways to challenge a DUI case, include:

  • Was there probable cause for the traffic stop?
  • Were the field sobriety tests conducting according to federal guidelines?
  • Were your search and seizure rights violated?
  • Does the evidence on the dash cam align with the officer’s testimony?
  • Were your Miranda warnings read?
  • Was the breath testing equipment properly maintained or calibrated correctly?
  • Was chemical evidence collected, analyzed and stored correctly?
  • Did you have a medical condition that caused an invalid blood alcohol reading?

In many DUI cases, cross-examination of the arresting officer plays a big role, especially when I am able to demonstrate that the police officer’s testimony conflicts with the evidence on the officer’s own dash cam.

 

If the officer describes you as slurring your speech and falling over drunk, but the video footage shows that you were acting completely normal and polite, this can poke some serious holes in the prosecution’s case.
