Understanding DWI Charges & Penalties

Motorists caught driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) above .08 percent will be charged with a DWI and face the following penalties if convicted:

  • Incarceration: A first-time DWI conviction may involve jail time between five days and one year. Judges usually hand down more jail time if the offender has a high or aggravated BAC,
    was involved in an accident or after second and subsequent offenses.
  • Large fines: The fine is between $600 and $1,000 for a first-offense DWI. These fines increase to up to $1,500 for subsequent convictions. This does not include the cost of prosecution, as well as, all the out-of-pocket costs associated with probation, monitored sobriety and alcohol classes.
  • License suspension: A first-offense DWI conviction may result in a one-year administrative driver’s license revocation in Colorado, potentially leaving you unable to travel to work or school. If it is your second or third offense, you could lose your license for between one and five years — a substantial amount of time to go without driving privileges.
  • Mandatory IIDs: Even on a first offense, you may have to install an ignition interlock device (IID), which comes at your own expense and requires you to pass a BAC test before you can start the car and periodically while driving. Upon subsequent convictions, IID installation is typically mandatory and for longer periods of time.

With the potential penalties in mind, you can understand why it’s critically important to work with a trustworthy Bell County DWI defense attorney to fight the charges against you. At Tyroch Boyd, lawyers Zach Boyd and Melissa Tyroch have the skills and experience you need to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome given the facts of your case. We use effective defense strategies to minimize jail time, avoid hefty fines and preserve your driving privileges.

Our firm can also help you get an occupational license in the event your driver’s license is suspended. Don’t let that process scare you during this difficult time.
