Colorado Springs DUI Lawyer
Is this your first DUI arrest?
A first time DUI is usually charged as a misdemeanor, but may be charged as a felony if there was as an
accident resulting in injuries. First time DUIs should not be treated lightly. It is important to get immediate help from a
Colorado Springs DUI attorney if you have been charged with this crime.
You are considered to be driving under the influence if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08% or greater. If your BAC is between .05% and .08%, you will most likely be charged with driving while ability impaired (DWAI). After your arrest, your license will be temporarily suspended. You have 7 days from the time of your arrest to request a civil hearing from the DMV. The purpose of this hearing is to determine whether or not your
license will remain suspended, or be restricted or revoked.
