The top 3 things you should know about a DUI arrest in CO

As the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaches, many people will take needed breaks from family by grabbing a drink or two with friends the day before. In fact, the day before Thanksgiving has become such a popular time for going out that some have started calling it "Blackout Wednesday," according to Bloomberg.

What should you do at a DUI roadblock?

With the holiday season in full force, police departments throughout the country will be setting up DUI roadblocks. Their goal is simple — to get drunk drivers off the road. While they may have the best intentions, this often leads to a situation in which a person is treated poorly.

Students in hot water following discovery of sexting

A group of students at a Colorado high school is facing serious allegations after the discovery of a sexting trend.

As students are identified, they will likely face very serious criminal charges.

Building a strong DWI defense case

Have you recently been arrested in Colorado for driving while intoxicated or driving while ability impaired? A conviction on either of these charges can have a significant impact on your life. You could lose your driving privileges, pay hefty fines, be required to have an ignition interlock installed, pay higher insurance premiums and more. You could lose your job if you are required to drive for your employer. A DWI or DWAI could even affect child custody proceedings.

What happens when victims do not appear in court?

If you have been charged with domestic assault, a court date is inevitable. In most cases, even if the alleged victim has decided he or she does not want to press charges, the state will still prosecute the case because the charges have already been filed -- and domestic abuse is against the law. Now, it is up to your attorney to provide a defense. If the alleged victim does not appear to testify, can his or her statements made to others be used?

Three ways a felony DUI conviction will impact your rights

If you are a repeat DUI offender, you could face felony charges under Colorado's new law. Specifically, if it is your fourth offense, you could be convicted of a Class 4 felony. This can result in up to six years in prison, up to $500,000 in fines and a felony conviction on your criminal record.
