Colorado Felony DUI Defense
Multiple offense DUI charges can lead to a felony conviction in Colorado. Because of what is at stake, it is important to seek the aid of a defense attorney that knows the intricacies of both Colorado DUI law and the procedures in felony court.
If proposed legislation is passed this summer, a third DUI conviction will be a felony if it comes within seven years of the first two convictions. In addition, a fourth offense in a lifetime would be a felony. These changes to Colorado DUI law are expected due to the legislative pressure from the public to get tougher on multiple offenders.
The new Colorado felony DUI law expands and increases the possible sentences for a DUI conviction. The maximum sentence for a class 4 felony is up to six years in the Department of Corrections, and up to 12 years in prison with aggravated circumstances. The penalties are the same for a felony vehicular assault involving a DUI or a vehicular homicide involving reckless driving.
