Colorado’s New Felony DUI Law: WHAT NOW?
Four Strikes Becoming Devastating For Repeat DUI Offenders
Most know that DUI laws have become tougher over the years, but the change put into effect on August 5, 2015, was an historic step in Colorado. For those charged with their fourth DUI, a felony DUI will be filed if the accused driver has three prior alcohol-related driving convictions, regardless of where in the United States they occurred.
It is critical to work with a proven, knowledgeable criminal defense attorney if you or a loved one is facing any alcohol-related driving charge, including a misdemeanor DUI or DWAI. Should your concern involve a felony DUI near Fort Collins, a lawyer well-prepared to advise and represent you is one call away.
