Colorado DUI Law

May 28, 2010

The Governor just proudly signed the new DUI law requiring mandatory jail.

 

So will this reduce DUI’s?  No.

 

This is a recurrent problem in this field. The legislature passes criminal laws to make the punishment harsher with the expectation that harsher punishment reduces crime.

 

It doesn’t necessarily accomplish that purpose, in fact, you can find supportive studies on DUI sentencing that show that the more jail you give, the more likely the offender will repeat the crime.
