Drivers repeatedly busted for drinking and driving in Colorado could soon face tougher penalties including a felony conviction.
Colorado has some of the most lenient laws in the nation when it comes to DUI charges. It’s one of six states where no matter how many times drivers are caught driving drunk the charge is a misdemeanor.
That charge is punishable by, at the most, one year in the county jail. Only after that driver kills someone or serious bodily injury is involved, does the charge become a felony.
