First Time DUID methamphetamine
I got arrested for the first time in my life somewhere in CO (only have had a couple speeding tickets and nothing else prior) and I am twenty-five. I was spooked as I passed a Sheriff going the opposite way when I saw him turn around on the road a hundred yards behind me and I turned into a driveway which gave him suspicion to follow me. The Sheriff arrested me on DUID for being high on Meth and false plates on my car. I had insurance. I went to jail for the weekend until I could post bail. He said he could smell it and I agreed to take a UA at the station. He had me do a test where I stood with my feet together outside, head tilted way back and tell him when 30 seconds was up. They searched my car without consent, but I had nothing on me or in my car. This is first time arrested.
I'm not sure I see a question here. You might want to rephrase.
I was ignorant of the law and refused a breath test. Is there anyway I can save my license.
I am a middle aged woman, do not drink very much or very often and was pulled over. My husband was intoxicated, argued with the officer and I was deemed drunk. I felt antagonized by the officer and confused as to why he was arresting me as I was not intoxicated. I thought if I took the breath test I would only make things worse. When the office told me to sign the paper saying I was refusing the test, I did not read the paper as I did not have my glasses and thought the officer was telling me the complete content of what I was signing. Is there any way to keep my license. I have never been arrested, have no recent traffic violations and need to drive to make a living.
Probably not. Ignorance of the law is not a defense or excuse to prohibited conduct. The fact that you signed the...

Are there DUI lawyers who will just do sentencing?
I've already pled guilty to a DUI, but haven't been sentenced yet. My lawyer hasn't answered my calls or emails in the weeks since pleading. I have my sentencing hearing coming up and I'm not sure what to do. Are there lawyers who will help me at just the sentencing hearing? Or can I do it myself? I'd like someone to be able to share with the judge the classes I've already taken and other things to take into consideration. What should I do?
Yes, but it's concerning that there has been such a lack of communication from the lawyer you retained. You can...
Is there a Colorado State equivalent to California's DUI First Time Offenders class?
I was charged with a DUI in CA about 4 years ago at age 20. I moved to Colorado before beginning the first time offenders class. I completed every court requirement except the class, which I believe is actually a DMV stipulation. I am not certain. Is there a way to complete the requirements from CO?
