What Are the Consequences of a DUI Conviction?

That is why it is important to obtain an experienced and aggressive Denver DUI defense attorney.

If convicted of DUI, you can expect to face the following penalties:

  • 1st DUI Conviction
    • Up to 1 year in jail
    • $300-$1,000 in fines
    • 48 to 96 hours of community service
