Should you hire a private defense attorney or rely on a public defender?

The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right of every person accused of a crime to have counsel for the purpose of his or her defense. Accordingly, Colorado has established the Office of the Colorado State Public Defender, tasked with defending those who cannot afford to hire private defense attorneys. There is also an Office of the Federal Public Defender for the Districts of Colorado and Wyoming which defends people accused of federal crimes.

How much do insurance rates jump after an underage DUI?

Being convicted of DUI at any age has many negative effects. But for a minor, these effects can be especially severe. In addition to a criminal record, a fine, and a driver's license suspension, the minor will face the prospect of sharply higher insurance premiums. The insurer may cancel insurance coverage entirely, even if the minor is covered under a family policy.
