A DUI arrest can upend your life. Merely being arrested for the offense, even if you are innocent, can result in bond restrictions that can limit your freedom. If you are convicted, the restrictions on your liberty will only get worse. The simplest DUI is punishable by up to 6 months in jail and/or a fine of up to $500. Aggravating factors and subsequent violations can increase the level of the charge and, therefore, the penalties you face. Colorado attorney Jim Medley has dealt with DUI prosecutors in Brighton, Denver, Golden, and Littleton, Colorado.
A Colorado DUI case is complex. There is a lot of science involved. Before you are arrested, the police officer may have had you submit to roadside sobriety tests or a roadside breath test. Many cases involve laboratory blood alcohol testing or police breath testing. Everything that happened from the initial stop to official charges being filed can affect the outcome of your case. If law enforcement officials did not follow correct procedures and the stop or your arrest was unlawful or the blood or breath testing machine was not properly maintained, any evidence collected could be deemed inadmissible if you have a top Colorado DUI defense attorney.
