Boating Under the Influence
Many individuals do not take into account that when they operate a boat, they have to abide by the law at all times, including DUI laws. When a person operates or drives a boat while intoxicated, they can face severe legal penalties if they are caught. Boating is a favorite leisurely activity for many individuals and families in Colorado and law enforcement officials make it their duty to protect the safety of people on lakes and rivers throughout the state. They are always on the lookout for boat drivers operating their vessels under the influence of alcohol, and if a person is suspected of committing this crime they may be asked to perform field sobriety tests or blood or breath tests. If a boat driver’s BAC is over the legal limit of .08, they can be arrested and charged with boating under the influence (BUI).
If you or someone you love has been charged with BUI, you should speak with Arapahoe County DUI attorney Chris Cessna. Individuals convicted of boating under the influence may be subject to jail, fines, community service, alcohol treatment or rehabilitation, or more. If you want to make sure your rights are protected, you should schedule your free consultation with Attorney Cessna to discuss your case and what options may be available to you.
