Were your rights violated?

If your childhood was anything like those of many others in Colorado, you might have been taught to always respect and obey authority. Fast forward to a moment in time when you look in your rear view mirror and see flashing red and blue lights atop a police car. Those childhood lessons likely kick in and you immediately pull off the road and come to a stop as safely as possible. What if it doesn't end there, however? What if a police officer asks you to step out of your car so he or she can take look inside?

Defending against a Colorado DUI charge

Many Colorado drivers do not realize that DUI is a defensible charge. There is a number of good and valid reasons a person who would not otherwise drive while intoxicated may do so, and that may cause the charges to be reduced or even dismissed. While every DUI case is different, it is possible to successfully defend against a DUI and avoid fines, jail time and other potential consequences.

Prosecutor laments strength of Colorado DUI laws

A 57-year-old man was recently indicted by a grand jury in Colorado on nine charges in relation to an alleged DUI accident in Arapahoe County. The 57-year-old man reportedly has 20 previous citations for alcohol-related convictions and has been convicted 16 times. Most of these convictions took place in Colorado.

Authorities to file charges against impaired bus driver

After a Denver bus driver was taken into custody for allegedly ignoring a stop sign on Sept. 1 and driving while impaired, officials announced that they intend to file charges in the case. Although a misdemeanor charge was originally filed, prosecutors withdrew that charge with the intention of filing a felony charge. The driver is no longer working until the investigation is completed.

Colorado driver pleads guilty to DUI

When a driver makes the mistake of driving under the influence, other drivers may take notice of suspicious behavior and report it to the authorities. If this takes place, a driver could be stopped by law enforcement and potentially charged with DUI. After being suspected of such a violation, a driver will likely have to enter into court proceedings, and as a result, the suspect may also wish to determine which legal routes might be right for them.

Colorado DUI law changes could mean harsher punishment

As state legal systems are always evolving, it is important to stay updated on changes in-laws. This is especially important if a person believes they may be affected by the change. As with most legal predicaments, most individuals do not plan to find themselves facing allegations for DUI or other situations, but such circumstances can arise. If an individual does find him- or herself in such a situation, understanding how laws may affect them is important.
