DUI Attorney Representing University of Denver Students

A person under 21 can be arrested for drunk driving if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.02% or greater. Adults will face driving while ability impaired (DWAI) or DUI charges if their BAC is 0.05% or greater. The consequences of a guilty verdict in a DUI case can include jail time, fines, public service, licenses suspension and points accrued on your driving record. If you accumulate 12 or more DMV points within a year, your license will automatically be suspended for twelve months. A student that has been found guilty of DUI may also be suspended or dismissed for school. You will also have a permanent criminal record that can limit future job, housing and educational opportunities.

There are many ways to challenge the testing evidence in a DUI case, such as the use of expired test kits, improper procedures, administration of the tests by an unqualified person and contamination of samples. A University of Denver DUI attorney from Law Office of Christopher H. Cessna can evaluate your tests to determine if any mistakes were made that could invalidate the findings.
