Driving Under the Influence in Douglas County
If you were arrested for Driving Under the Influence in Douglas County, Colorado, you are scared and know that you must appear at the Douglas County Justice Center at 4000 Justice Way, Castle Rock CO 80109.
But what does Driving Under the Influence mean? For the prosecutor to prevail at trial, he or she must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were substantially incapable of safely operating a vehicle due to alcohol or drug consumption. Colorado law, specifically C.R.S. 42-4-1301(1)(a) defines driving under the influence or alcohol and drugs as a crime in Colorado.
Conflicting with everyday belief is the notion that your BAC, or blood alcohol content, does not mean that you are guilty. If you did take a blood or breath test, a second allegation of DUI-per se exists under Colorado law that is related to whether your BAC was at or above 0.08 at the time or within a reasonable time after driving.
If you are convicted in your Douglas County DUI case, you face several penalties, including a stay in the Douglas County Detention Facility, probation, monitored sobriety, alcohol or substance abuse classes ad therapy, steep fines and court costs, and a driver’s license revocation with ignition interlock requirements.
