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.
Being somewhat in the public eye could cause a person to be careful of their actions and could cause an individual to make decisions based on public appearance. When a person makes a mistake that can quickly become public knowledge, such as being charged with DUI, they may take certain actions to lessen a possibly prolonged negative impact. While taking actions to cushion reputations and other appearances may be important to some, it could also be beneficial to take time to explore legal options concerning the charges a person faces.
