If you have been charged with a DUI or DWI, it can have devastating effects on your life. It can not only cause issues with your driver’s license but also tarnish your reputation, your profession, and other aspects of your life. A DUI charge or conviction can also serve as a grim reminder of how much worse off the situation could have been – resulting in your life or another’s life being lost. The penalties for a DUI have always been strict in Colorado, however, the law has made more of an effort to intensify these penalties, further punishing those who receive a DUI conviction.
This is why it is more important now than ever for you to hire a DUI lawyer in Denver to assist you with your case. The law office of C. Robert Biondino Jr. will aggressively fight for your rights and defend you in court so that the likelihood of getting the full force of the law is reduced. Don’t try to handle this alone as the DUI process can be a difficult road to navigate.
What To Expect From A DUI Charge
If you have been stopped by law enforcement for driving under the influence, there are a few things that you need to consider in order to protect your rights and to help your case. The first thing that you should do, and this goes for all interactions with law enforcement, is to record everything that occurs during the traffic stop. If you have a device that is capable of recording video or audio, begin using it as soon as you are stopped. There is no need to request permission from the officer first; record the incident so that you have evidence of everything that is said and done. Next, you need to know that you are not obligated to perform any roadside sobriety tests.
Participating in these tests are strictly voluntary and most of the time, they are unreliable. Refusing to use them won’t cause harm to your case and the jury won’t know unless you refuse to take a chemical test. Lastly, having a basic understanding of the Colorado DUI express consent laws will aid you in your case as well. These statutes state that there are penalties to refusing a chemical test and that you must take a breathalyzer or blood test if you are stopped under the suspicion of driving under the influence. However, you can still refuse especially if you know you will test positive for a high blood count that surpasses the legal limit which will decrease the penalties should you be charged. If you do make the decision to test, take a blood test and take it at hospital so that you can have witnesses to ensure that they know what is going on.
