What Happens If Convicted of a DUI?
Colorado takes DUI convictions seriously. Being convicted of just one DUI with an otherwise spotless record can still slam you with penalties that will affect all facets of your day-to-day life.
If convicted, you could be facing serious penalties such as:
- Time spent behind bars
- License suspension
- Expensive fines
- Community service
- Ignition interlock device installation
- Alcohol education courses
To make matters worse, the Colorado DMV will automatically suspend your license if you do not request a DMV hearing within 7 days after your DUI arrest! You read that correctly: You only have one week to request a DMV hearing, or your license will be suspended for up to 9 months by default. You can be found entirely innocent of drunk driving by a court of law later and your license will still remain suspended since the DMV is an administration entirely separate from the criminal justice system.
Do not lose your chance to stop your license from being suspended. Call us at (720) 809-8310 as soon as you possibly can after being arrested.
