A conviction for a DUI (driving under the influence) carries serious penalties such as jail time, fines, court costs, community service, probation, home arrest, license suspension or revocation, court ordered alcohol treatment and/or education. A person convicted of a felony DUI may have to serve time in prison. It is important that you hire a competent defense lawyer who will aggressively represent you. The Legal Boys will provide you with that competent attorney!
In Utah, any driver with a blood-alcohol concentration – or BAC – above .08% is considered “per se intoxicated” under the law. This evidence is all that is needed for a driver to be considered driving under the influence. Even if the driver is below the .08%, arrest is still an option. For a person under the age of 21, Utah practices a “Zero Tolerance,” meaning you will be arrested. Penalties involve suspension or revocation of your driver’s license by the Department of Motor Vehicles. After a driver is charged with a DUI, he or she has 10 days to submit a hearing request to the DMV, or this person will indefinitely have a license suspension. In Utah, for the original DUI offense the mandatory suspension is 90 days; for the second offense, one to two years; for the third offense, three years. Being charged with a DUI is no laughing matter.
