Short of actually being convicted of a crime, criminal charges are the worst consequence you can face for getting into trouble with the law. If you are convicted of a misdemeanor or felony offense in Boulder, you could possibly be required to serve time in prison, community service, pay steep fines, or attend rehabilitation, depending on the terms of your sentence. There are several possibilities for paying back your debt to society that can strip your future away from you in the blink of an eye. The severity of the consequences aligns with the severity of the crime committed.
Violent crimes such as assault, domestic violence, and homicide are treated very seriously by the Colorado justice system. DUI and drug crimes are also prosecuted harshly by the state. A tough criminal defense attorney who has significant experience defending such crimes is your best chance toward a better outcome.
Although a standard DUI offense is a misdemeanor crime, this is one crime that does not come off your criminal record. You can be charged with DUI in Boulder if you submit to a breathalyzer test and your breath alcohol concentration reaches the legal limit of 0.08% of higher. Even if you refuse the breathalyzer test, you run a high risk of being arrested for DUI if you provide reasonable suspicion to the officers who executed the traffic stop. It is important to discuss your DUI charges with a Boulder DUI attorney as soon as possible.
Additionally, if you are suspected of driving under the influence in Colorado, but you were not drinking alcohol, you could face charges for driving under the influence of another substance such as marijuana. You could also face DWAI charges for a breath alcohol concentration of 0.05% up to 0.08%, which is a lesser charge than DUI but a criminal charge nonetheless.
