Should I worry about jail time for my first DUI in CO involving an accident?
Last night, I hit a sign while driving home, and was pulled over. I took the field sobriety test and blew a 0.17, then consented to a blood chemical test. The officer assured me, based on having no criminal record, that the most I would have to do is AA and community service. I understand that isn't legally binding, and the court case could turn out differently. I'm just hoping because I blew under a 0.2, first offense, no injuries, fully complied, no Miranda rights issued, no additional evidence provided... I have no idea how this is going to turn out, I just really want to know what would be the best and worst outcomes, and anything I can do to improve it. I won't survive in jail, please help
There is really no way to answer a question like this with out knowing the blood test result. The test result will...

If I got a DUI in Colorado but am a New Mexico resident, how does the interlock part work?
I got a DUI, plead guilty, with the help of a lawyer got everything squared away, after the sentencing part was having the interlock, but the lawyer said he didn't know if I'd be allowed to get one since I am a NM resident and the DUI was in Colorado. He said I would receive paperwork for it through the DMV, and he was basically stepping down/done with my defense. I have gotten everything else (probation, community service etc) paperwork but recevied nothing from the DMV. I called and the NM DMV is still showing no restriction on my license. What am I supposed to do and who would I contact? Do they normally allow out of state DUIs to get the interlock?
Yes, you can have an interlock device on your vehicle in your home state when you were convicted of DUI in another...
If you have no results of your blood work when you go to court can they provide one at a later time? Can they drop the charge
Do we have to get a lawyer or public defender to fight this, we have little money
You need a lawyer or a public defender. Your case will not be dropped simply because the blood work is not yet complete.

There are two things going on here. One, is whether or not you met the elements of Prohibited Use of a Weapon and the...
