Fort Collins Repeat DUI/DWAI Offenses Attorney
When a defendant already has one or more prior DUI convictions on his or her record, the penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) in Colorado increase. With a multiple DUI offense, you can expect the length of jail time, driver’s license suspension, fines, and amount of community service required to increase. Having a prior DUI conviction on one’s record may also lead the prosecuting attorney, law enforcement, and the judge to believe that it is necessary to make a point at sentencing. This may result in harsher penalties without proper legal representation.
Any person, no matter their past track record, deserves competent legal counsel. Call me today to schedule a free consultation at 970-829-1221
