Out of State Drivers & DUI Charges

If you are from another state but were arrested and charged with DUI while visiting or driving through Colorado, you will want to hire a lawyer who can handle out of state DUI charges. Arapahoe DUI attorney Chris Cessna has handled many cases involving DUI and out of state drivers, and he will know exactly how best to handle your situation. When facing charges of DUI from another state, the situation can become very confusing because you have to take into consideration the laws of the other state, as well as the laws from your home state and figure out how these will affect the overall outcome of your charges.

It is a common misconception that if you are charged with DUI in state other than your home state, you will only lose your driving privileges in the state in which you received the DUI. This is not always the case, and because of the Interstate Driver’s License Compact, information may be shared between your home state and the state where you were charged for DUI. This agreement is between 45 of the 50 states in the U.S., and according to this compact, if a driver is arrested for DUI in another state, their home state will be notified. This typically means that the person will face consequences in their home state as well as the other state, the most common consequence being license suspension.

If you have been charged with drunk driving in Colorado but are from a different state, Arapahoe DUI lawyer Chris Cessna can help you. With him as your legal representative, you can rest assured knowing your out of state DUI charges are being properly handled and you may not even need to re-visit Colorado to take care of this matter.

If you are an out of state driver needing help with drunk driving charges in Colorado, contact The Law Offices of Christopher H. Cessna today!
