DUID (Driving Under the Influence of Drugs)
DUID, or Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, is a very serious charge in Colorado. Although there is no alcohol necessary to be charged with this offense by statute, its consequences can be identical to a DUI conviction.
Insurance companies, employers, and the government all treat DUID as synonymous with DUI. These cases carry unique legal challenges that demand the attention of a knowledgeable Denver DUI attorney who has experience handling these types of cases. At Hebets & McCallin, our Denver criminal attorneys know the special challenges that these cases present and we fight to obtain the result that our clients deserve.
How we can Help
Since the legalization of recreational marijuana, Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, or DUID cases, are being prosecuted more and more aggressively in Colorado and involve unique legal challenges. It is essential that your Denver criminal defense attorney have specific experience defending DUID tickets. These charges often involve the use of police DRE (Drug Recognition Expert) certified officers who opine upon a defendant’s level of impairment as well as urine or blood tests to determine amounts of drugs in a person’s system. These assessments and results require review by an aggressive Denver defense attorney specifically schooled in DRE and Forensic Toxicology procedures. The attorneys at Hebets and McCallin are continually attending training's geared toward exposing deficiencies in these examinations and tests.
