Will I Go To Jail For A DUI In Fort Collins?

To many people, the prospect of spending time in jail is one of the scariest things about a DUI charge. At Bradley D. Martin Law, LLC, our clients facing allegations of DUI want to stay out of jail, and we are dedicated to helping them protect their rights and their freedom.

Will I Go To Jail For A DUI In Fort Collins?

The answer to this question depends on many factors, from your criminal history to the success of your defense lawyer. We help people defend against charges of DUI. There are several ways to avoid jail time:

  • For a first-time DUI conviction, the court may suspend your jail sentence if you complete alcohol education classes and comply with the terms of your probation.
  • If you are convicted of DUI with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .20 or higher, there is a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 days in jail that cannot be suspended. However, the judge may allow you alternative sentencing options like work release or home detention rather than jail time.
  • Colorado law requires mandatory jail time for a second, third or subsequent DUI conviction.

If you have a DUI on your record and are facing a repeat charge, it is absolutely essential to work with an attorney who can aggressively defend you and help you minimize the penalties. At Bradley D. Martin Law, LLC, we prepare your case aggressively, evaluating all of the evidence to build a strong defense.
