DUI Breath Testing in Boulder County, Colorado

In many cases, you may be required to submit to a breathalyzer test, per state law. Boulder County law enforcement utilizes an Intoxilizer 9000.

Breathalyzer devices are known for malfunctions that impact performance, including required retesting, problems with uploading data, data loss, and abnormal readings. Conditions as simple as using mouth wash and breath mints can result in false positives.

In addition to technical difficulties, user error can be a point of contention if the test was administered incorrectly or under false pretenses.

Another area that we will focus on is video evidence – by state law, all officers are required to wear an active camera. This video along with the officer’s dashcam, will be used implicate you in a DUI. Our office will get ahold of the video immediately to establish a point of defense for your DUI case.

Restoring ROC – Boulder County offers the Restoring Our Community Program (ROC). ROC is a voluntary substance use disorder treatment program designed for men who have three or more drinking/drugging and driving offenses. The program provides relapse prevention, problems solving, and communications tools.

State upholds warrantless blood draws – In 2017, the state upheld Colorado’s expressed consent laws after lower circuit judges threw out blood tests in a previous case. If it didn’t, Arapahoe District Attorney Jennifer Gilbert was quoted as saying that “it could have invalidated every breath or blood test that a driver in Colorado provides as part of a DUI investigation.” This means that express consent laws are extremely strong in Colorado, and that the chances of a blood or breath test being thrown out in Boulder County as a result of not having a warrant is slim.

Colorado considering new refusal laws – Colorado Lawmakers are considering HB 1135, a bill to establish new regulations on commercial drivers. However, the bill comes with “additional latitude,” according to the article. This latitude includes new restrictions on DUI test refusals, which lawmakers say have risen to nearly 50% in 2022. Under the bill, refusing a test would be charged the same as the actual DUI.

DUI Education Locations – If you conceded a DUI charge, you’ll need to take DUI rehabilitation. These are often completed on-site, at some of the following locations:
