Will I be in more trouble for being arrested with a higher BAC in Colorado? 2 Answers as of December 03, 2010Last week, I got my first DUI ever, and my BAC was a 0.22. I know I messed up, but I want to know if the fact that I had a higher BAC will get me in more trouble than someone who gets a lower BAC, like a 0.09. I had a clean record up to this point, and I am 33.

First make sure you request a DMV Hearing. Since you are over .17 you face maintaining an ignition interlock for two years in you lose your license. Moreover, for BAC's .207 you are looking at 10 days jail mandatory. You should consult an attorney who specializes in DUI's. I would be glad to discuss your options.
