Colorado 42-2-206 Habitual Offender – Driving After Revocation Prohibited Crime – Reduced To A Misdemeanor In 2015.

Colorado 42-2-206 Habitual Offender – Driving After Revocation Prohibited Crime – Reduced To A Misdemeanor In 2015. In a little noticed section of a major new law – Colorado House Bill – 1043 – Colorado’s Felony DUI Bill, the Colorado State legislature reduced in severity what was previously the Felony Aggravated Driving After Judgment Prohibited 42-2-206.

The effective date of the amended law is August 5, 2015 and it applies to crimes allegedly committed after that date. This may have been done for budget reasons but it constitutes a sea change to those previously facing a felony conviction for Habitual Traffic Offenders who drive under certain circumstances.

The law – 42-2-206 essentially defines two crimes – the regular Driving After Judgment Prohibited and Aggravated Driving After Judgment Prohibited. The former is not affected by the change.

The Changes To 42-2-206 – The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The Good: As of August 5, 2015, what is referred to as Aggravated Driving With A Revoked License will no longer be a Class 6 felony. Under the new law – the penalty for a conviction of Aggravated Driving After Judgement Prohibited – is reduced to a Class 1 misdemeanor.

The law also removes DUI, DUI Per Se and DWAI as possible foundational crimes for committing the offense. That means that a person can no longer be charged with Aggravated Driving After Judgment Prohibited if the basis for the aggravated driving charge is a DUI or DWAI.

Put another way, the new law repeals those provisions to the crime of aggravated driving with a revoked license when the offender also commits the crimes of DUI, DUI per se, or DWAI as part of the same criminal episode. (See below)

The Bad: While the new crime is reduced to a Class 1 misdemeanor, it has a new mandatory jail provision requiring the Judge to sentence the convicted person to a minimum of 60 days in the custody of the county jail.

The Ugly: The change in the law did NOT mitigate other sentencing provisions of the law. The unenhanced or non-aggravated version of Driving After Judgement Prohibited still requires a mandatory 30 days in the county jail.

Many unfamiliar with Colorado’s 42-2-206 Habitual Offender – Aggravated Driving After Revocation Prohibited Crime may benefit from reading the newly enacted law.

Here is the new law – effective August 5, 2015 for crimes occurring on or after that date:

§ 42-2-206. [Effective 8/5/2015] Driving after Revocation Prohibited
