After being charged with a DUI, your lawyer will immediately look for a way to avoid a conviction for DUI. Colorado, along with every other state, considers DUI to be a criminal offense. Defendants in criminal cases have the right to take the case to a jury trial and seek an acquittal. These cases can lead to acquittal once they go to trial, but they also can lead to conviction. Your attorney will seek out any shortcomings in the prosecutor’s evidence and even get some pieces of evidence excluded. If your rights were violated or the evidence is faulty, an experienced criminal attorney can get the charges lessened or even dropped. The right attorney will advise you as to whether or not the evidence can be defeated or if a plea bargain is a better option for you.
