Penalties for a Third or Subsequent DUI

Colorado Governor Bill Ritter and the state legislature are recommending tougher penalties for repeat DUI offenders, as well as mandatory treatment for those convicted of a first-time DUI.

One of the main changes the governor and the legislature are recommending is requiring all people convicted of three or more DUIs to spend at least 60 days in jail and remove the possibility of a work release sentence, at least until they've served 60 days.

How does this penalty compare to the penalties for a 3 rd DUI in California?

In California, if a person is convicted of a third DUI, he or she could face:

  • Anywhere from 4 months to 1 year in county jail
  • Driver's license suspension for up to three years
  • 1 to 5 years probation
  • Mandatory 18 months alcohol education classes
  • Up to $1,500 in fines
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device in the vehicle
