Tiftickjian Law Firm, P.C.
Denver, Colorado Felony DUI. As of June 1, 2015, Colorado became the 47th state to enact a felony DUI law. Under the new law, individuals who receive a fourth-strike DUI conviction face the possibility of spending multiple years in prison and paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. The latest changes to the law, signed on June 6th, 2017 and in effect on August 9th, 2017, set minimum sentences for felony DUI convictions. Judges have broad discretion in imposing penalties under Colorado’s felony DUI law, and individuals who have an aggressive, impassioned advocate on their side will have the best chance of minimizing the repercussions from their arrest. Attorney Jay Tiftickjian has been a vocal opponent of Colorado’s DUI law. Prior to enactment of Colorado’s felony DUI law, a fourth conviction was treated similarly to a third. Under Colorado’s felony DUI law, a fourth-strike DUI offense can be charged as a Class IV felony, carrying up to a six-year prison sentence and $500,000 in fines. For purposes of counting convictions, the law considers not only Colorado DUIs., but drunk driving or impaired driving convictions from any state in the country.

Thanks to Colorado’s felony DUI law, drivers can now face truly life-changing consequences even for routine DUI arrests.

Protect the innocent. Focus on education over punishment.
A friend of Fair DUI sent us this juicy document from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Devallis Rutledge, a refugee from the Orange County DA’s office, writes his opinion about various issues and in this case he took on our California Fair DUI flyer. People v. McKay was not about the encounter between a police officer and a driver at the window. If you’re stopped by a police officer, you haven’t been arrested yet, so 40302 doesn’t apply. There’s certainly an argument that if you’ve been stopped for a traffic violation you might have to hand over your license at some point – particularly when the officer has decided to write you a citation. BOTTOM LINE: Upon demand of a peace officer at a lawful traffic stop or CDL/sobriety checkpoint, the driver must give required documents to the officer, and may not merely exhibit them through rolled-up glass. The bottom line is that you do not have to give the documents to police at a traffic stop until the officer has decided to give you a citation. You should only give it to the officer if you are ordered to do so. Police officers should be very careful with this, as they could be held liable for excessive force under Deville v. Marcantel. We do want police to follow the law, but we also want to protect police from dumb advice from the lawyers who are supposed to be on their side.
