Colorado Community Leader Facing Drunk Driving Charges

A school superintendent in the Woodland Park district of Colorado is currently facing a DUI charge. This criminal charge could affect his career and role in the community, even if he is not convicted of the crime. Drunk driving charges can result in steep penalties, but the mere accusation can also result in loss of reputation, loss of opportunities and more. At this point, he has every right to vigorously defend himself against these charges.

How this will impact his job long-term is not immediately clear, but the district did release a statement saying that it was looking into what happened. He is currently on administrative leave. The superintendent was arrested after the vehicle he was driving left the road and struck a tree. At the scene of the accident, law enforcement administered several sobriety tests, all of which he purportedly failed.

At the time of his arrest, he underwent a test of his blood alcohol content. Tests apparently indicated his BAC was .114, which is well over the legal limit in Colorado. Reports indicate that he submitted to two Breathalyzer tests after he was taken to jail, both voluntarily.

There is a lot at stake when facing drunk driving charges. Even if the evidence seems insurmountable, it is always in the interests of the defendant to fight back, challenge the prosecution’s case and fight for mitigated penalties. Whether it is the superintendent’s first DUI charge, or he has previous convictions on his record, it will be helpful to work with an experienced defense attorney who understands how to effectively navigate DUI cases.
