The cost of DUI can be expensive. If you are convicted of DUI in Colorado Springs you could also face loss of insurance coverage, higher insurance premiums, the loss of a job or career, and a harder time getting a job in the future.

A DUI in Colorado Springs can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony. There are also “aggravating circumstances” — elements of the crime that require stiffer penalties or longer jail time — if found guilty. If you are facing a felony DUI or additional charges, the penalties will likely be greater.

Some examples of aggravating circumstances include:

  • Did you refuse the breath test?
  • Was your blood alcohol level (BAC) over .15%?
  • Did you injure another person?
  • Was a child under the age of 14 years old in the vehicle?

If any of these aggravating circumstances existed at the time of arrest, Colorado Springs state law requires that an interlock ignition device be installed in any vehicle being operated by the offender — even if this is your first DUI!

If your job requires you to drive or you hold a commercial license, a DUI conviction can severely affect your source of income and your family. Your DUI record can also harm your job and future earning prospects. Ignoring the situation will not make it better. It will often make it worse. You only have a limited amount of time to request a DMV hearing to stop the automatic suspension of your driver’s license.

Frequently Asked Questions

The punishment for a DUI in Colorado will depend on a few factors. The main two factors being the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of the driver, and whether this was their first DUI conviction or if they had any previous ones. For a first-time DUI, depending on their BAC, a driver can face jail time up to one year, the revocation of their license for 9 months, community service, and alcohol classes. These penalties will be even steeper with consecutive DUIs.
Colorado’s legal limit is a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08. Anyone operating a vehicle with a BAC of .08 or higher will be charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI).
In Colorado, a DUI is most often considered a misdemeanor. However, if the DUI in question causes the severe injury or death of anyone, or if it is the driver’s 4th or more DUI (in any amount of time), the charges will most likely be elevated to a felony.
The period of license revocation for a DUI in Colorado depends on the particular circumstances. For first a first DUI in Colorado, the minimum license revocation period is 9 months (which could be increased for extenuating circumstances). This period will also be longer for any subsequent DUI convictions the driver faces.
Yes, Colorado is considered a zero-tolerance state. This means that for drivers under the age of 21, it is unlawful for them to drive with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .02 – .05. A first-time offense within this range is considered an infraction rather than a misdemeanor. Any BAC over a .05 would be charged as usual.
There is no mandatory jail time for a first DUI unless the driver’s BAC was above .200. However, depending on the BAC, and other factors (such as serious injury or death) there is the possibility of jail time from 5 days all the way up to 2 years.
A DUI conviction in Colorado will stay on someone’s criminal record (and thus show up on any background checks performed) for 10 years after the conviction.
In the state of Colorado, a DUI will result in 12 points to your license.
