Don't make a bad situation worse

Persons arrested for DUI are often charged with other criminal offenses such as vehicular eluding and leaving the scene of the accident.  Where an accident results in death or serious bodily injury, leaving the scene of the accident is aggravated from a misdemeanor to a felony level offense, carrying with it more serious penalties like prison time.  Don't make a bad situation worse.  Know your rights, and call Boal Law Firm, P.C. at 719-602-2262 immediately if you find yourself in such a situation. 

No one is immune...

DUI/DWAI can happen to anyone, even judges as this article explains.  In Colorado the criminal offense of "hit/skip" is called hit-and-run: a misdemeanor, unless the driver causes serious bodily injury or death in the accident, in which case it is either a Class 4 or Class 3 felony carrying prison time between 2 and 12 years as possible penalties.  This is a very serious offense.
