Pitkin County DUI-D
Were you arrested for DUI-D in Aspen or Pitkin County? Being charged with DUI-D means you have been accused of driving under the influence of drugs. While this charge is similar to DUI – which is the term used to describe driving under the influence of alcohol – DUI-D can refer to several different types of drugs that may have been in your system at the time of your arrest, such as marijuana or cocaine. If you have been charged with DUI-D in Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, or any other surrounding city or town that is within Pitkin County, you will be required to attend a hearing at the Pitkin County Courthouse.

If you were arrested for DUI-D, you will be ordered to take a blood test. The results of the test will most likely be presented in court as evidence to convict you. However, the presence of drugs in your blood is not always straightforward evidence. For example, it can be argued that certain drugs that are found in your blood are remnants of drugs that were consumed prior to the incident and were not actually impairing your ability to operate a motor vehicle at the time of your arrest. These facts can be argued and disputed in court by a DUI defense attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable about blood tests in regard to a DUI-D charge. The attorneys at Tiftickjian Law Firm, P.C. are trained and experienced at evaluating such tests.
