Colorado DUI Charges And Consequences
You will be charged with a DUI if you are driving a motor vehicle or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle and your blood alcohol concentration is at or above .08 percent. A BAC of .15 or higher will result in being labeled a persistent drunk driver, even if this is your first offense. You will be treated like a repeat offender when it comes to sentencing.
A DUI conviction for your first offense is a misdemeanor and will stay on your record for the rest of your life.
You may also face the following consequences:
- Jail sentence for five days up to one year
- License suspension or revocation
- Attend court-ordered alcohol education classes and treatment
- Serve community service
- Serve probation
