Colorado Springs Multiple DUI Attorney

What Are the Penalties for Multiple DUIs in Colorado?

The state of Colorado has very tough laws concerning DUI charges, and particularly for those with prior DUI offenses on one's record. A person convicted of DUI faces substantial penalties. Convicted a second time, they would be looking at jail time of up to one full year, fines of up to $1,500 dollars, license suspension of up to a year, and as much as 120 hours of public service. Needless to say, a repeated DUI conviction can have drastic effects on one's freedom, family and job. Faced with a third or fourth conviction, the penalties get even more severe. It is imperative, therefore, that a person facing a 2nd, 3rd or 4th DUI charge immediately gets the help they will need from an experienced Colorado Springs DUI attorney.

Regardless of your history, you deserve competent legal representation. You need an attorney that not only knows the Colorado DUI court system, but that will also take an aggressive, comprehensive stance to explore all avenues of defense possible, so that a conviction can be avoided. Retain a Colorado Springs DUI defense lawyer from The Samuelson Law Firm. With extensive experience in DUI crimes across the state, I can advocate for you.

Does Colorado Have a Lookback Period?

Consequences for multiple DUIs cannot be taken lightly. Unlike other states, Colorado does not have a lookback period for DUI convictions, meaning that a DUI you may have gotten 35 years ago will still account against you if you happen to face an additional arrest. Don't let these mistakes ruin your life! You may be able to explore some options that allow you to continue living your life, such as wearing a SCRAM bracelet or being asked to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle.
