Jefferson County Colorado DUI Sentencing for Multiple Offenders
As a Jefferson County DUI Defense Attorney I am frequently asked about what sentence a person may face in their DUI case? What will happen if you have prior DUIs? No two cases are alike and we certainly do not have a "crystal ball." However, based upon experience your case is not without hope.
Mandatory Jail SentencesIn 2010 the Colorado Legislature took a stand against people who have multiple DUI convictions by imposing harsh mandatory minimum sentences. These mandatory minimum sentences are dependent upon your number of prior offenses in your lifetime and the age of those prior DUIs. In plain English, if you have prior DUIs and you get a new DUI then you are in incredible danger of serving an actual lengthy jail sentence in Colorado if you are convicted. The more prior DUI offenses you have the longer your jail sentence may be. Talk to your Colorado DUI Defense Attorney in order to get a specific idea of what penalty you may be facing.

Jefferson County Alternative DUI SentencesOne option that your Jefferson County DUI Defense Attorney may choose to fight for is the Inmate/Outmate Program. This Inmate/Outmate Program may be able to keep you out of jail for a LARGE amount of time. The Inmate/Outmate Program is a 1 year sentence County Jail that provides a community-based sentencing option created to: (1) offer clients convicted of multiple DUI/DWAI offenses an alternative to jail and (2) allow the clients to remain at home in the community by providing a program of INTENSE supervision and intensive substance abuse treatment. You (the client) typically begin your sentence in jail on Inmate status. You then LEAVE the jail on Outmate status and begin supervision with a Case Manager back home in the community. If there are any violations of the Terms of the program, you may be RETURNED to jail on Inmate status.
