Out-of-State vs. In-State DUI

Colorado law treats non-resident DUI defendants differently than it does in-state defendants. Without a legal representative, you could face serious penalties in both Colorado and your home state. Keep in mind, if you do not contact an attorney within seven days of your arrest, you could forfeit numerous advantages and rights, especially in regards to your ability to drive. Your home state will be alerted of your case and will likely enforce the same penalties.

After receiving an out of state DUI, you can expect:

  • Summons notifying you of the charges being brought against you
  • Confiscation of your driver's license and issuance of an "Affidavit and Notice of Revocation"
  • License suspension in Colorado and your home state
  • Having your license placed on hold with the National Drivers Registry if you do not act
  • Potential arrest warrant if you do not show up to trial dates

The best way to avoid these penalties is by contacting an experienced DUI lawyer in Denver who knows how to properly defend out-of-state drivers. Not only will you be facing these initial repercussions, but you will also need to defend your case so you do not incur even harsher criminal penalties.
