Throughout the four-day campaign, Colorado police made a total of 421 DUI arrests. State police plan to carryout similar DUI campaigns during the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day celebration weekend.
A DUI arrest can be serious and result in fines, jail time and a permanent criminal record. Oftentimes, at the very least, individuals facing DUI charges face thousands of dollars in fines as well as suspension of their driver’s license. A DUI arrest also carries a social stigma that can negatively impact both an individual’s personal and professional life.
Individuals arrested and facing DUI charges would be wise to contact a legal professional for advice. A criminal defense attorney who is experienced in handling DUI matters will often be able to ensure for the best possible legal outcome. In many cases, police-collected evidence such as breathalyzer or blood alcohol tests are deemed inadmissible in court and effectively thrown out.
