Denver DUI Attorney
Third DUI Offense
Being convicted of DUI is serious. Law enforcement is very aggressive regarding keeping drunk drivers off the road. Penalties are harsh, and when you are convicted for a third time, you can expect even more devastating repercussions. Our firm, M. Trent Trani & Associates, P.C. is experienced in defending individuals in Denver who are facing this charge for the third time. There are possible defenses, and we stand to support you, your rights, and your freedom.
A third conviction of DUI will mean 12 points against your driver's license along with a license suspension up to 2 years. You can also expect a jail sentence of 60 days up to 1 year, a requirement to fulfill 49 to 120 hours of community service, and fines up to $1500. You will also have a criminal record. All of these penalties will negatively impact your future. Aside from the inconvenience, jail time, and the financial hit, employers are much less likely to hire you, or keep you employed, if you have criminal background.
Quality Representation in Denver for DUI Charges
There are different defenses possible, depending upon the facts in the case. We carefully review the police report, which can reveal weaknesses in the prosecutor's case. There may be questions regarding the legality of the police stopping you in the first place, or if you underwent a breath test, it's possible the equipment was faulty or the officer administering the test was not qualified. These are but a few examples of what we would look for, which could result in case dismissal, a reduced charge or an acquittal. We provide aggressive representation to all of our clients.
