Is Colorado DWAI (lesser offense than DUI) recognized by other states? Particularly interested in WA/OR.
DWAI in Colorado does not seem to have counterparts in other states. It is for BAC of 0.05 to 0.08. Most (all?) states have a 0.08 cutoff for DUI. I am particularly interested if Washington and Oregon will recognize this DWAI if I get a license there.
I would have to know exactly what second code you'd plead to, but you're right, for most states the cut off is .08 but...
Will my recent issue violate the terms of my DWAI probation agreement??
On March 15th i had a BAC of 0.09, my licensed was suspended. After 4 months of the courts not being able to find my blood sample, i finally plead guilty to a DWAI on September 5th and had my sentence of 180 days in jail suspended via first time offender and DWAI probation for 9 months. On September 25th in an emergency, i was involved in an non violent accident infront of my house. The police were called the accident reported, so i was charged with driving while license suspended and careless driving. My new court date is set for November 6th. Will this accident clearly violate my DWAI probation?? and regardless, can the sentence be reduced in anyway??
Usually 1 constant in probation conditions is to live a law abiding life. Unless driving was the absolute only way to...
How long have BAC blood draw test results taken in Colorado?
In your experience how long has it taken to receive blood test results in Colorado? I was arrested for a DUI and indications are that I was very near the 0.08 mark (at booking with the inaccurate breath machine it was 0.082). I had a blood sample taken and await the results. The arresting officer told me it generally takes 2 weeks to receive results but I have also heard it takes months. Would having an independent test expedite the process of reaching a plea bargain with the DA? I am hoping to find quick resolution so that I may investigate employment opportunities out of state as I am only in Colorado temporarily. I'll be represented by a public defender so may have to do some of this work on my own.
In response to your question as to how long it takes for the government to have your blood test results back is between...

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...
Court proceeding, ORDR (order) was issued 50days after defendant pleaded guilty(dui) court case closed. what order could be?
I was a DUi accident victim (property damage only). DA office informed me that the defendant pleaded guilty of DWAI (her first offense), was sentenced (probation only), and the case closed in June. I ordered a court report last week and found out that an court order was issued after approx. 50 days from her dui conviction/sentence. court proceeding like this; 5/12/2015 MINC Minute Order (Print) ; 6/15/2015 MINC Minute Order (Print) ; 6/15/2015 CLAD Case Closed ; 8/01/2015 ORDR Order . I wonder what type of order it may be? We finally were back to our normal life. We don't want any surprise Thank you for your time!
Why do you care? This isn't your case?
