Woman Nervously Watching Man Get ArrestedThe consequences of driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (commonly abbreviated as “DUI” and “DUID”) or while the person’s ability to drive is impaired by alcohol or drugs (commonly abbreviated as “DWAI”) are serious and far reaching.  These consequences include both criminal and administrative penalties that will have an effect on almost every aspect of your life including your freedom, your ability to drive to work and your ability take your kids to school.

Criminal Consequences of DUI/DUID/DWAI

The criminal consequences of being found guilty are extensive and far reaching.  These penalties include but are not limited to imprisonment, fines, community service and substance abuse treatment.  The extent of the these penalties depends upon a number of factors including, but not limited to, whether or not you have been previously convicted of one of these charges and your blood alcohol content.  Generally, persons facing driving under the influence charges can face:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to a $1500 fine
  • Up to 120 hours of community service
  • Court costs

Additionally, in 2015, Colorado made it a class 4 felony for someone to be found guilty of DUI or DWAI if they have 3 or more prior offenses.  If you are in this situation, you could possibly be sentenced to 6 years in prison.

Administrative Consequences of DUI/DUID/DWAI

In addition to the criminal consequences associated with DUI/DUID/DWAI, you are also facing further administrative consequences for a conviction.  These penalties include, but are not limited to:

  • License Suspension for up to 2 years
  • 12 points assessed against your driver’s license

Furthermore, if you don’t act within 7 days of receiving the notice of revocation of your driver’s license you will lose the right to a hearing of this issue forever.
