A 2nd or 3rd DUI Or DWAI Could Mean Mandatory Jail Time
If you have been arrested for DUI for a second or subsequent time, you may have a serious problem. Colorado cracks down hard on repeat DUI offenders. If you are convicted, you will end up in jail and have a conviction on your record, which can affect your ability to get a job, apply for school or a loan, or find a place to live. You cannot risk your future on an extra beer. You need a Boulder DUI lawyer with significant experience in DUI defense.
The attorneys of The Moorhead Law Group have more than 25 years of experience in the Colorado criminal justice system. Both of them have experience as prosecutors and have defended the rights of individuals across Colorado. They have defended hundreds of DUI cases and know what is at stake if you are convicted of a DUI.
Penalties For Repeat DUI And DWAI Offenders
If you are arrested for a second or third DUI or DWAI, and you are convicted, there are mandatory penalties, including mandatory jail time. You also risk a driver’s license suspension of up to two years, fines of up to $1,500 and being required to perform up to 120 hours of community service. If you have been arrested three times within seven years, you risk mandatory suspension of your driver’s license for five years.
Our attorneys will review the evidence against you and look for ways to challenge the arrest and the breath or blood test, as well as other possible defenses in your case. Your circumstances may allow us to pursue alternative sentencing, such as alcohol treatment programs and the possibility of serving your jail time at home with an ankle monitor.
We will sit down with you during a free initial consultation to discuss your situation, the potential consequences and whether you need an experienced attorney to defend your rights. We know that your future is on the line, and we will do everything in our power to protect it.
