START YOUR FIGHT BY TALKING TO ME

Colorado Springs Underage DUI Attorney

More than 27 Years of Quality Criminal Defense

If you have been arrested for underage DUI, or if you’re a parent whose son or daughter has been arrested, I urge you to contact me at Geoff Heim, Attorney, LLC. As a Colorado Springs underage DUI attorney, former prosecutor and member of the National College for DUI Defense, I have the knowledge, resources, and experience necessary to aggressively defend your DUI case!

Under 42-4-1301 C.R.S., it’s illegal to drink and drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater. Under Colorado’s Zero Tolerance Law, that threshold goes down to just .02% for drivers under the age of 21.

If you were under 20 and your BAC was between .02% and .079%, you face the following penalties:

  • 3 month driver’s license revocation
  • Fine up to $100
  • Up to 24 hours community service (BAC of .02 but less than .05%)
  • Participate in alcohol education and therapy

Penalties For .08% Or Higher

If the underage driver’s BAC was .05% or greater, then he or she will be treated the same as an adult. It is vital to secure representation from a skilled Colorado Springs DUI attorney if you or your child are facing adult charges.

The penalties for having a BAC of .08% or higher are:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Between $600 and $1,000 in fines
  • Between 48 hours and 96 hours of community service
  • Probation
  • Alcohol education classes
  • For a juvenile, there is an additional penalty of license suspension for a minimum 9 months upon a conviction without the ability for a probationary license.

There are additional consequences of an underage DUI which will have a negative impact on your auto insurance premiums, and in some cases on your ability to play on college sports teams, and on your ability to gain admittance into certain colleges.

As an experienced Colorado Springs DUI lawyer, I can help ensure that your future is being protected.
