Colorado readers may be aware of a recent appellate case involving a serious drunk driving accusation. A 45-year-old woman who was convicted for a number of traffic related charges, including vehicular homicide, has been granted a new trial. She was involved in a serious car accident that took place in 2009 during which two women lost their lives. After that crash, the woman was arrested under suspicion of DUI.
Last year in Colorado, a man was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated and causing a fatal accident. However, the driver who was blamed for the death entered a guilty plea for DUI in exchange for other charges being dropped. The man has been sentenced to one year in jail and a two-year probation period.
