Individuals throughout the Colorado Springs area are charged with DUI every day. If you are in this situation, finding a way to avoid jail time may be your main focus. The reality however, is there are multiple potential penalties you could face if convicted of the crime. Some experience a financial impact as well, in the form of fines or court costs.
You don't even need be convicted of a DUI to face life altering consequences. Following an arrest, and before a trial, you could lose your driver's license. This could make it difficult to get places you need to be, such as work.
To keep the impact of a DUI to a minimum, it is a good idea to contact a criminal defense lawyer sooner rather than later. That individual can help get your life back to the way it was prior to the arrest.
