Is DUI a Felony in Colorado?

A DUI conviction can result in jail time, license suspension, hefty fines and court costs, court-ordered alcohol treatment, community service and other restrictions. Being convicted of drunk driving can also result in job loss or difficultly in obtaining employment and will remain on your record as a criminal conviction for life. A DUI case can be charged as a felony in certain circumstances, including motorists who are charged as habitual offenders, drivers who have a felony DUI conviction within the previous10 years, or drunk driving charges that result in a serious or fatal accident.
