How can I be proactive for a DUI trial in Colorado?
Male 209 lbs 2 beers at 10:40, 2 beers at 11:00, 1 beer at 12, 1 shot of tequila around 1am. Traffic stop at 3:06 am., with a .12 BAC at arrest. Chose a blood test and blew a .087 around 2 hours later at detox. Not imagining there will be anything to really contest about the situation in court, but I'll leave that to the attorney I hire. Planning on the following already: -Alcohol Education and Treatment Placement -Weekly AA meetings -Writing a thank you letter to the officer for his professionalism, he said that he would forward it to the court if I did so (planning on running this by the attorney before sending) -Volunteering trying to reach a minimum of 48 hours pre court date What else?
Stop posting on open forums. Stop making admissions. Hire an attorney.
Should I proactively enroll in Level I or Level II Education and Treatment placement for a Colorado DUI investigation?
Background info: Male: 209 lbs 2 beers at 10:40, 2 beers at 11:00, 1 beer at 12, 1 shot of tequila around 1am. Traffic stop at 3:06 am. I was pulled over for apparently crossing solid double yellows 3 times (weaving) and suspicion of a DUI. I consented to the roadside sobriety tests and completed the horizontal eye test, the walk and turn, and the one leg stand successfully and then provided a breathalyzer test that turned back a .12 BAC. I was arrested and chose a blood test which was taken around an hour to an hour and twenty after the arrest. I was then taken to detox forty minutes later and blew a breathalyzer test that turned back a .087 BAC. I have waited the past week to formally receive the preliminary driver license suspension and blood results in the mail but have not yet. Level I education is required with less than a .10 and Level II is required with a .10-.149. Is it foreseeable that my BAC may have fallen in the .09 range during the blood test? I want to show the judge I am being proactive with my situation before trail in January and I would prefer not to wait any longer with enrolling in these classes, however, should I wait with the criteria above?
Start the classes. You can use it as mitigation when negotiating a favorable plea deal with the DA. Please hire a lawyer.
Will a first offense MIP in Colorado cause license suspension?
I recently got an MIP in Littleton, Colorado. It's my first offense. Will anything happen to my drivers license since this is my first offense or will I just have to do alcohol classes and/or community service?

Will Jefferson county terminate probation early?
I was sentenced to two years probation for a dui involving an accident. I have completed 18 months with no issues during probation except i failed my first three ua's because of marijuana use before I was sentenced. I filed a motion for early termination 90 days ago and it was denied due to 1) the failed ua's for marijuana 2) because the dui involved an accident. What are the chances the judge will allow the early termination (or unsupervised probation) now?
A lot depends upon the judge and when you filed your motion for early termination. If it was the other day then any new...
