Penalties for DWAI Convictions

According to CO Rev Stat Sec. 42-4-1301, your ability to drive becomes impaired once your BAC is .05%. If you are unfamiliar with this law, you may think you are in the clear and be surprised to face charges. Having an attorney who can fight for your rights, your driving privileges, and your future is essential. Do not mistake DWAI charges as being anything but serious, even if it is a lesser offense than DUI.

The penalties for a DWAI conviction may include:

  • 1st offense: Fines from $200 to $500, 2 days to 180 days in jail, 24-48 hours of community service, and 8 points on your record.
  • 2nd offense: Fines from $600 to $1,500, 10 days to 1 year in jail, 48-120 hours of community service, and 8 points on your record.
  • 3rd offense: Fines from $600 to $1,500, 10 days to 1 year in jail, 48-120 hours of community service, and 8 points on your record.

Depending on the circumstances, a person could face additional penalties such as an ignition interlock device in your vehicle, as well as alcohol counseling. Although most of these offenses are charged as misdemeanors, a subsequent (4th or more) offense could be charged as a felony.
