As the suspect was preparing to make his escape he drove his vehicle in reverse and struck the officer who initiated the stop. He was stopped again and apprehend just a few minutes later and will not only face the original charge of DUI along with a battery of new and equally severe charges related to the hit and run.
Being stopped for a suspected DUI after you’ve had a few drinks can be a very frightening experience. It is much better, however, to reach out to an experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney following the stop instead of running the risk of compiling a multitude of additional charges by attempting to flee.
An experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney can examine the evidence of the investigation and work to develop a very effective method of defense. By enlisting the most effective strategies for your DUI defense your Colorado criminal defense attorney may be able to negotiate a very favorable plea bargain that will have your charges reduced or possibly even present a strong enough plan of defense to convince the prosecutor to drop the charges against you.
