What Is Considered a DUI in Colorado?

Underage DUIs are treated the same as an adult DUI under Colorado law. The state has a "zero tolerance" policy when it comes to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you are under 21 and are suspected of driving while impaired, you could be arrested and charged with a DUI.

The state's definition of a DUI encompasses:

  • Driving a vehicle while impaired by alcohol, drugs, or a combination of both.
  • Driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .05 percent or higher.
  • Driving a vehicle with the presence of a Schedule I or Schedule II drug in your system.
  • Driving a vehicle with the presence of a Schedule III, Schedule IV, or Schedule V drug in your system.

The minimum penalties for an underage DUI in Colorado include a license suspension of at least six months and a fine of at least $600. You could also be required to attend DUI school, perform community service, and participate in substance abuse treatment.

In addition to the above penalties, you could be required to pay restitution to any individuals or organizations harmed by your actions. You could also be required to install an interlock device in your vehicle as a condition of your probation.


How Does Colorado Decide Whether to Try an Underage DUI as a Misdemeanor or Felony?

In Colorado, an underage DUI is typically charged as a misdemeanor. However, the severity of the offense can increase depending on the specific circumstances.

Circumstances that could increase the severity of an underage DUI include:

  • Refusing to take a blood, breath, or urine test after being pulled over for suspicion of a DUI.
  • Being previously convicted of a DUI.
  • Being pulled over for suspicion of a DUI while under the age of 18.
  • Reckless driving or driving under the influence of drugs while under the age of 18.

If you are convicted of an underage DUI, the court may choose to classify the offense as a misdemeanor or a felony. The court will base its decision on the severity of the offense and your criminal history. If you are facing a felony DUI charge, you could be looking at fines of $5,000 or more, a prison sentence of up to six years, and a license suspension of up to three years.


Underage DUI Penalties

In addition to the penalties listed above, you could be required to perform community service, attend alcohol education classes, and/or participate in substance abuse treatment. You could also be required to pay restitution to any individuals or organizations harmed by your actions.

You should not face the serious consequences associated with an underage DUI on your own. Our Denver underage DUI attorney can provide you with the legal representation you need to help you avoid the consequences of a DUI conviction.

    "The most amazing counsel I could have ever hired for my cases! THANK YOU FOR MY FREEDOM!"
    After 11 years of addiction and a life long drug related life style I am now 19 months clean and can thank Charlie and everything he has done for that. He fought so hard to get me the treatment I needed on my felony distribution case and a very serious indictment. I would NOT be sitting here typing this if it wasn't for this man! You are a hero and the most amazing counsel I could have ever hired for my cases! THANK YOU FOR MY FREEDOM AND SOBRIETY!
