Colorado man accused of drunk driving following collision

Facing accusations for driving under the influence of alcohol is stressful and even intimidating. When a car accident is involved, the situation can quickly become more challenging to overcome. A conviction of this nature can be detrimental to one's future, often including time behind bars. A man was recently arrested and accused of drunk driving after allegedly rear-ending a police cruiser in Colorado.

Hit-and-run, DUI charges for man who crashed, ran from police

Driving under the influence in Colorado is a serious criminal charge that can take away a person's rights and result in a prison sentence in some cases. One who is convicted of DUI charges may have a relatively easy experience in the punishment phase if it is a first offense and if no personal injury or property damage has occurred. Sometimes, however, the accused increases the crisis by engaging in actions after being stopped or apprehended that bring additional charges and may exacerbate the seriousness of the incident.

Robbery suspects accused of targeting numerous businesses

When a string of armed robberies is committed in Colorado by a group of masked suspects, defense counsel will investigate the facts of each incident in detail. Counsel will probe the circumstances of each alleged robbery and the surrounding facts thoroughly to determine the existence of potential defenses. At the same time, as the investigation proceeds, counsel will evaluate and discuss with the accused whether plea negotiations would be more appropriate.

DUI felony offense not yet fully evaluated for success

Colorado did not have a felony penalty for driving drunk until the legislature passed a law in 2015. Under the law, anyone who is arrested for DUI who already has three or more convictions for that offense on their record will face a felony DUI charge and the possibility of a significant prison sentence. The severity of those prior offenses are generally evaluated at sentencing to determine the severity of the punishment.
