Penalties for DUI in Colorado

Individuals facing criminal charges from DUI are typically very curious about the penalties they might face if convicted. Arapahoe DUI lawyer Chris Cessna handles all types of DUI cases in Colorado and can give you a better idea of your possible penalties after carefully examining your case. Every DUI case is different, and the exact penalties will depend on a number of different factors.
