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...
About dui
Husband got arrested in '09 for DUI in Denver. Went to court he got a year probation for the DUI and $1000 in fines, sent to classes and had to check in everyday for random UA. After a couple of months we moved because he lost his job. What I want to know is how do we go about getting everything transferred to where we live now? I'm pretty sure he has a warrant in Denver ...what can we do for him not to go to jail and to get this all set to he can pay a fine and probation so he can get his drivers license back.
Yes he's probably got a warrant and violation of probation case waiting for him. He will absolutely need to hire an...
Have a DUI in Colorado, moved out of state. What to do at court date?
I lived in Colorado Springs and a week before I moved out of the state, I got a DUI (going away party, go figure). So my questions are: Prior to court should I get a state ID from my new state to show I know longer live in Colorado? Is there a way to do the DMV hearing by phone since the dmv and court dates are different? Will I have a chance to meet with the DA on my court date to talk about the fact I no longer reside in Colorado, or is that something I should try to do prior to the date? Is there any sort of statute that limits type of punishment given to people who are no longer residents? I held off on getting a license in my new state because of this, should I try beforehand or wait until my inevitable license suspension is over?
The first thing you need to do is call an experienced DUI attorney. As an example I have a client who lives in Texas...
I was found guilty of DUI in Colo by a jury. If I appeal after sentence is handed down, will my d/l revocation be stayed?
I won the EC hearing so I have not lost my license yet at all in this case. I believe that I have a good chance at getting a new trial on appeal so I want to not lose my license while the appeal is pending. will I be able to keep my license pending the appeal? thank you.
Depends if it's entered into the record or not. This is a question to ask your attorney, not a general online forum.

I am 20 years old I got a DUI I want to know what's going to happen when I go to court?
So I was drinking at a party I ended up staying at a friends house and I woke up like 4 hours later with my stomach hurting. So I decided to drive home (which I felt completely sober) and ended up getting pulled over for running a red light and they smelled the alcohol on me so I ended up getting a DUI my BAC was 0.141. I have a clean record other then a speeding ticket for driving 5-10 over speed limit last year. I just am really curious to know what's going to happen in court? What am I looking at in fines? Am I facing jail time? How long will I be without a license? And is there anyway to get a deferred sentence? If not, is there anyway I will be able to get this DUI off my record? Please help!
If you can possibly afford it, you need to hire an attorney to defend you. DUIs are complex cases, and you may have a...
