Colorado Is Known As One of the Harshest States For Felony DUI
In Colorado if you have three or more prior alcohol-related driving convictions (DUI, DWAI, etc.), you may be charged with a felony DUI. You also now face prison time if convicted again. Colorado’s felony DUI law is one of the harshest in the nation. You must fight for your freedom and keep yourself out of the jaws of prison.
You must choose to fight for your freedom as you have too much to lose in Colorado. The felony DUI is a Class 4 felony, and if you are convicted you face between two to four years in the Colorado Department of Corrections (prison). This prison sentence would be followed by a mandatory three-year parole once you are released from prison. What makes the felony DUI especially scary is that under certain circumstances you may face up to 12 years in prison if the court finds extraordinarily aggravating circumstances in your case. These harsh penalties demand that you choose a lawyer who will fight for you.

Whether Your Field Sobriety Tests Were Done Correctly May Determine Your Case
Colorado’s felony DUI law does not care if you have a high or a low BAC. When it comes to fighting your felony DUI the difference between prison and freedom may rest upon whether or not your tests were done correctly.
Ask yourself these questions:
- “Did the police officer do my eye test according to national standards?”
- “Why didn’t the DUI officer ask me about my health problems?”
- “The breath test machine (Intoxilyzer) gave me an error message right before it said I was drunk. Is that normal?”
- “If breath tests are so accurate why did I do a breath test on the street and later again at the station?”
- “I passed the roadsides perfectly. So why was I arrested?”
