DMV Sentencing Lawyers in Denver

A Skilled Defense Attorney Can Lessen the Impact of a Charge

When the state charges you with DUI in Colorado, you only have seven days to request a hearing to avoid the standard DMV sentencing penalties on your license.

Depending on your circumstances, the DMV will automatically apply specific penalties to your license:

  • Driving While Ability is Impaired (DWAI) 1st Offense: 8 points toward license suspension, a $200 - $500 fine, up to 48 hours community service, and up to 180 days in jail
  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs (DUI) 1st Offense: Administrative revocation of your license for nine months, a $600 - $1,000 fine, up to one year in jail, up to 96 hours of community service, alcohol education classes
  • DUI or DWAI 1st Offense Under 21 Years Old: 4 points on driving record and three months of driver’s license suspension.

The blood alcohol content (BAC) level for a DWAI is 0.05%. The BAC for a DUI is 0.08%. For those under 21, the BAC limit is 0.02%. These penalties are in addition to any criminal sentencing that may also be handed down. By requesting a DMV hearing, you may be able to minimize or remove these penalties.

Don’t just accept the DMV's sentence. Contact a Denver DUI defense attorney at Fife Luneau, P.C. to help. You can reach us at (720) 408-7130 today.

An Interlock May Shorten Administrative Suspensions

If you are given a suspension of your license as part of a DUI conviction, you may be eligible for early reinstatement if you install an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) in your vehicle. You must have served part of your suspension, be over 21 years old at the time of the violation, and have satisfied all other requirements for reinstatement.

Let Fife Luneau, P.C. mount a strong defense on your behalf. Contact a Denver DUI sentencing attorney for a free consultation at (720) 408-7130 today.
