Is Drunk Driving a Felony in Colorado?
Repeat DUI Offenders Be Aware
Most know that DUI laws have become tougher over the years, but the change put into effect on August 5, 2015, was an historic step in Colorado. A felony DUI will be filed if the accused driver has three prior alcohol-related driving convictions, regardless of which state they occurred. Though the same laws apply to prove a DUI Offense, now the consequences have become much harsher. A felony conviction can have life-time consequences.
