HB14-1036: Felony For Repeat DUI Offenders

Criminal Legal Reform
Bill Number: HB14-1036
Year: 2014
ACLU Position: Active Oppose
Sponsors: Waller/Saine


Under current law, a DUI, DUI per se, or DWAI is a misdemeanor offense. The bill makes such an offense a class 4 felony if:
• The violation occurred not more than 7 years after the first of 2 prior convictions for DWAI, DUI, or DUI per se; vehicular homicide; or vehicular assault; or
• The violation occurred after 3 prior convictions for DWAI, DUI, or DUI per se; vehicular homicide; or vehicular assault.

The bill repeals provisions relating to the crime of aggravated driving with a revoked license when the offender also commits DUI, DUI per se, or DWAI as part of the same criminal episode.

The bill makes conforming amendments.
