Unforgiving DUI Penalties in Colorado
The penalties you can receive if convicted of a DUI are harsh, to say the least. This is due partly to the state legislature's determination to crack down on drunk driving in recent years. The severity is also intended to prevent repeat offenses by punishing the driver so that they are not likely to drive drunk again. The problem is that there is little evidence to say that higher penalties create lower crime rates.
If you are convicted of a DUI in Colorado, you may be facing the following sentences, and similar penalties for a DWAI:
- Up to one year in jail
- $1000 in fines – not including other fees
- Nine months license suspension
- Installation of an ignition interlock device (IID)
