Jefferson County DWAI Lawyer
Understanding Charges of DWAI
While most people assume that the only criminal charge that can accompany driving while the influence of alcohol is that of DUI, the truth is that in Colorado, it is more complex than that. If you are, for example, pulled over and found to have a blood alcohol concentration above 0.05, but lower than the legal limit of 0.08, it does not necessarily mean that you are safe. Instead of facing a charge of DUI, you could be slapped with something like DWAI, or driving while ability impaired.
The consequences associated with this type of crime are less severe than those of DUI, however, it is also much less difficult for prosecutors to successfully convict a driver of this charge. Instead of needing the hard evidence that the driver was drunk, to be convicted of this infraction, all that will need to be proved is that you had enough alcohol in your system to impair your judgment from its normal state. This is an extremely gray area of the law and can be difficult to defend against since there are no concrete boundaries, but rather assumptions and guesses.
