If you were charged with driving under restraint, you face a minimum of 30 days in jail or in home detention. In Larimer county, in-home is very rare, so expect jail. You also face a potential revocation of your probation and up to a year of jail on the revo for your DUI. It is also a habitual traffic offense. 3 such offenses in 7 years suspends your license for 5 years.
You should contact a DUI/traffic attorney to help minimize your exposure.
Most of us offer free consultations. Contact one or more and find someone you like or can afford. If you can't afford anyone, apply for a public defender. You shouldn't do this alone.
Best of luck.
