DWAI Charges – What Are They?

In Colorado, the case may be such that you’ve actually been charged with a DWAI, rather than a full-on DUI. Compared to a DUI, DWAI (driving while ability impaired) is a lesser charge to some degree. DWAI is charged in situations where people are impaired but not legally intoxicated.

In Colorado, you may be charged with DWAI if your blood alcohol content is .05 or higher, meaning you can be arrested and charged even if you are just slightly impaired. This offense can still carry severe punishments, including the possibility of affecting your driving privileges.

Possible penalties for DWAI in Colorado include:

  • 1st offense: Up to 180 days in jail, $500 in fines, community service, and 8 points on your driving record
  • 2nd and 3rd offense: Up to one year in jail, $1,500 in fines, community service, and 8 points on your driving record

A DWAI becomes a felony in Colorado after three or more convictions for DUI or DUI per se, DWAI, vehicular homicide, or vehicular assault. This can carry penalties up to six years in prison, $500,000 in fines, and three years of mandatory parole.

If you have been arrested for DWAI, contact a DWI attorney at the Law Office of Jill M. Jackson in Denver today and get us working on your behalf.

Colorado DUI Penalties by The Numbers

Colorado’s DUI penalties are among the toughest in the country. In fact, Denver’s own Westword Magazine ranked Colorado as the 18th strictest state when it comes to DUI penalties.

What exactly will happen with your Colorado DUI charges? The possibilities are endless and extremely complicated. That is why it is important to enlist the aid of a DUI attorney in order to simplify the process and help you understand your rights, the potential consequences, and the different options available to you.

Typically in Colorado, a DUI first offense results in a 12-point charge on your license, which can lead to suspension of your driver’s license, fines upwards of $500, and in some cases up to 180 days in jail.

You Don’t Have Long to Request a Hearing – Act Fast!

The reason we recommend hiring a DUI attorney ASAP is that you have only seven days after receiving your license revocation or suspension notice to request a hearing. We have the experience to get things in motion for you, call (303) 963-9399 now to keep in front of the ticking clock.

From start to finish, we work alongside our clients and help them understand their rights. We understand that people make mistakes and that while those mistakes are sometimes life-altering, they don’t have to be life-ruining.
