Third DUI conviction, the previous one was less than a year ago and the first was about 3 years ago. What are the penalties?
The reasons for being pulled over each time were for minor traffic violations.
JAIL. Lots and lots of jail. 3 offenses within 3 years in El Paso County and you will be extremely lucky to only get 6...
How can the state convict someone of a crime with absolutely no evidence other than an officer's testimony?
I was charged with DUI/DUI per se for drinking a beer inside of my parked car. We had our doors open for airflow with our legs sticking out and my keys were in my pocket. The officer, who rode up to the side of my car on a bicycle, wrote in his police report that I had the keys in the ignition. He flat out LIED! This officer was a complete jerk from the beginning of the ordeal. They cuffed me, didn't read Miranda rights to me, and took back to the police station where I blew a 0.105 BAC. My friend (and witness) who was in the car with me when this happened wrote a statement re-emphasizing that the keys were NOT in the ignition. How can they convict me of a DUI if it's mine and my friend's word against a cop's word?
Simply put, because the jury gets to assess the credibility of any witness and they believed the officer over you and...
Facing DUI Charges, don't think I have received a notice of revocation or anything.Heard a BAC from bloodwork could take months.
I have paperwork but nothing has implied revocation yet in the paperwork. From what I understood from the conversation before I decided on the method of testing, because I took a blood test I was able to hold on to my driver's license for now.I got my driver's license back before being dismissed from the hospital and have been checking the mail daily because of my friend's advice but have yet to receive any other news. It's only been roughly two weeks but I'm feeling increasingly nervous because I am told I have to request a DMV hearing using the notice within a week or face not having a chance to try and get it back. I am also concerned about what may happen if it gets lost in the mail or sent to the wrong address because I moved recently and gave them a different address from my license.
First and foremost, seek the advice and consultation of an experienced DUI attorney, not a friend. You need to make...

I was stopped on jan. 20, 2014 for a dui. i was underage and drove with only a drivers permit. i was taken in to the hospital to do blood tests. It is now march 15 2014 and i still have not received any letter from the court, dmv, or lab test. I was assured by a lawyer that i would have that in about a month? i am wondering what i should do? will my case be dropped if they lose the blood tests? is there any way i can keep my license?
You simply have to wait. Because of numerous problems, the CO Dept of Health had to close their labs. So, law...
I recently got a third DUI. My previous two were 15 years a go in CA. I understand I'll have a min. of 60 days jail time, but I qualify for work release. I'm hoping I can start my work release when my company is in its slow season.
It will depend on the Judge and the County. Sometimes a judge will allow some leeway in choosing a date to begin a...
