Boulder Attorney for DUI

Understanding Enhanced Penalties for a DUI with a 0.2 BAC

In Colorado, criminal charges pertaining to driving under the influence are taken extremely seriously. According to DUI law within the state, if a driver has been deemed to have a blood alcohol concentration of above 0.08%, they are deemed legally drunk in the eyes of the law; it is also known as "per se intoxicated." There does not need to be any further proof of impairment, as this level of BAC is enough to incriminate them.

If the driver, however, is found to have an even higher BAC, they are facing even higher penalties. If a driver is found to have a blood alcohol concentration of over 0.2, they are facing what is known as enhanced penalties. These include extended jail time, steeper monetary fines and an extended period of time with a driver's license suspension. For example, in many situations, even for a first time DUI, if you have been found to have a BAC at this elevated level, you will be facing mandatory jail time.
