    I believe you lost your express consent hearing at the DMV, did not appeal and then the criminal case was dismissed. If that is the case you need to speak with an experienced DUI defense attorney immediately. The administrative law hearing (DMV) and the criminal court are separate proceedings with different burdens of proof. That being said if the hearing officer relied on information that has been shown to not be true you may have good cause to file a late appeal and or ask the hearing...

    The answer to your question is maybe. You definitely need to speak with an experienced DUI defense attorney right away. You need to request a hearing at the department of motor vehicles within 7 days. There are a number of potential issues to discuss and this area of the law is complicated enough that you will need an attorney to make sure your rights are protected.

    There are two different ways to lose your license on a first DUI. If you have an express consent hearing at the DMV and then department is able to determine in fact a revocation is appropriate you would lose your license for a 9 month period, but would be eligible to reinstate after 30 days with an interlock device. If you do not have an express consent issue with the DMV or you prevail at your express consent hearing you could still lose your license depending on what happens in criminal...

    If the charges in new Mexico was in fact a deferred and it was successfully completed the case should show that it was dismissed. If it was dismissed it will not count as a prior conviction in Colorado for sentencing purposes. Since you believe it was a deferred and the records are showing it as a conviction it is very important that you speak with a DUI defense attorney soon. If the prosecution and or the court believe there are prior convictions when in fact there are not all sorts of...

    I agree a defense attorney will not know what the sentence will be unless it is a stipulated sentence. The defense attorney will know what the possible sentence or sentencing range is when the hearing is scheduled. Depending on the charge and how frequently the defense attorney is in front of a particular judge they may have a very good idea as to what the sentence may be but will not know for sure until the judge actually imposes the sentence.

    If a person does not go back to the jail they can also be charged with escape. the level of crime and possible penalty depends on what the person is serving their sentence for in the first place. As my colleagues have stated it is best to go back before any number of bad things happen.

    You most definitely should request a hearing, you have nothing to lose by asking for and attending a hearing. You also should consult with a DUI defense attorney as soon as possible. One of the decisions to be made when requesting the hearing is if you would like the police officer present or not and you will want to have the advice of an experienced attorney to help make that decision. The reason for the delay is your blood test took a while to complete then the result is sent to the...

    Yes you can go to jail on either the new case or on a probation revocation for the first case. One of the standard terms and conditions of probation is no new law violations. You need to consult with a criminal defense attorney for both of these issues.

    You should definitely meet with an attorney or two to determine if in fact you need to hire someone to help you. Even if you want to plead guilty an attorney may be able to help get a reduction in the charge and or sentence.

    We need much more information to help you. We know you were charged, but we do not know the outcome of the case. We also need to know what jurisdiction your charge was in and when.
