Colorado DUI Probation

In Colorado, individuals who have been convicted of a DUI will face mandatory probation. For first-time DUI convictions, the probationary period is 1-2 years. Those who have been convicted of multiple DIUs often have a longer probationary period of 2-4 years. Probation is always circumstantial, and the length of the probationary period is dependent on the case.

If you are convicted of drunk driving (or other crimes) in Colorado Springs, the judge may impose probation instead of jail time. If you are eligible for a diversion program or deferred sentence, your case will eventually be dismissed if you adhere to the court’s terms. Violating your DUI probation or diversion requirements will land you back before the judge – and possibly in jail.

Types of DUI Probation

In Colorado, there are two types of DUI Probations two types of probation:

  1. Supervised probation – requires meeting with a probation officer, and is generally given to repeat DUI offenders.
  2. Unsupervised probation – does not require meeting with a probation officer, and is generally given to first-time offenders

Usually, individuals convicted of a DUI in Colorado will be required to undergo mandatory supervised probation. The period of time that probation will last depends on the circumstances of the case, state law, and judicial discretion. For first-time DUI offenders, the probation period generally lasts for one to two years. For repeat offenders, the probation period can be longer and ranges from between two and four years.

    "I was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only Caryn carries, but the firm as a whole."
    I, unfortunately, was involved with two separate situations within a few years of each other, which left me in quite a bind both times. I was lucky enough to have Caryn assist me in both cases and was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only she carries, but the firm as a whole. One of the best, if not the best lawyers I've ever come across. Extremely nice and very honest. I was able to resolve my situations with minimal impact and continue my life without fear of being held back.

    Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.
