Acquittal of DUI/DWAI Charges in People v. C.W.
Our Denver DUI lawyers at Fife Luneau, P.C. have once again helped protect the rights of another individual in the case of People v. C.W, which was tried in the Arapahoe County Court. We got our client acquitted of driving under the influence (DWAI) and driving while ability impaired (DWAI) charges.
The arresting officer pulled our client over, alleging that he failed to drive in a single lane. The officer administered a field sobriety test and reported that our client exhibited behavior that suggested he was driving under the influence, including slurred speech, unsteady balance, and bloodshot and watery eyes. The report also stated that our client smelled of alcohol.
With our skilled attorneys at his side, our client was cleared of the DUI and DWAI charges.
DUI Charges in Colorado
In Colorado, you can be charged with a DUI if you were driving while your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was 0.08% or higher. If you had a BAC between 0.05% and 0.08%, you could also be charged with DWAI. Conviction of either charge results in a misdemeanor, which goes on your criminal record.
Fortunately for our client, we know that a number of potential defenses can be used to argue against DUI and DWAI charges, such as challenging the officer’s testimony, calling into question that the driving pattern was caused by alcohol in the system, and questioning the arrest procedure. We conducted a thorough investigation of the case to identify possible defenses and built a solid strategy for our client.
