In Jefferson County, Denver DUI attorney Jacob E. Martinez achieved a dismissal of all counts against a local doctor in a DUI case. Mr. Martinez identified and utilized the defense of involuntary intoxication to achieve dismissal. Pursuant to Colorado Revised Statutes § 18-1-804(3),(4), “[a] person is not criminally responsible for his conduct if, by reason of intoxication that is not self-induced at the time he acts, he lacks capacity to conform his conduct to the requirements of the law.” Because involuntary intoxication is statutorily defined as a complete defense to all crimes, an involuntarily intoxicated defendant is absolved of responsibility for all criminal acts.
Because Mr. Martinez’s client’s case was completely dismissed, the client was able to successfully seal all records associated with the case
