In Colorado, a driver who is stopped by a law enforcement officer while driving under suspension or driving under revocation will be charged with driving under restraint. A conviction for driving under restraint results in mandatory jail time. If the arrest is non-alcohol related, the driver receives a minimum five-day sentence. If the arrest was alcohol-related, the driver faces a minimum of 30 days in jail. Conviction will also result in the extension of your license suspension for at least one year.
The good news for drivers who are arrested for driving under restraint (DUR) is that there are some possible defenses available.
At my law firm, Timothy A. Meinert, P.C., I represent people accused of driving under restraint, DUI, and other misdemeanors. In defending my clients, I examine every possible defense strategy and work to obtain the best outcome possible.

Obtaining a Successful Outcome
The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles must notify you of the revocation or suspension of your driver's license. Many driving under restraint prosecutions fail when the state cannot demonstrate that fact, or when you can show that you never received notice from the DMV.
I will use every possible means to overcome the charge, seeking a dismissal or victory at trial if possible. Often, I have found that prosecutors are willing to work with me to resolve the matter without need for jail time for my clients.
Protecting your freedom and your rights will be my top priority.
