Got Arrested for DUI in Utah? One call can put things in your favor.
Once charged with a DUI in Utah, you should consider hiring a lawyer fast.
Utah law is stringent on when DUI cases go to trial and how long you can apply for a plea bargain.
You can lose your driver’s license in a DUI case if you don’t act quickly.
You have ten days after your arrest to file for an administrative license hearing. If you fail to file for the DMV hearing on time, you automatically lose your driving privileges from between 4 months to 2 years.
This is a huge penalty, not to mention the inconvenience it will cause!
At Godfrey Law, we will aggressively come up with a defense strategy that will work favorably in your situation.
If your arresting officers obtained evidence illegally or made a mistake in procedures, a motion to suppress is one of the best defense strategies we can file to get charges dismissed.
Our team of expert DUI lawyers can determine if there are factual and legal reasons for your charges to be dropped.
Utah DUI Penalties
DUI or Driving under the influence is considered a serious offense all over America.
Utah has some of the harshest laws in the country concerning DUI. Officers rely on measuring BAC or blood alcohol content as a basis to prove DUI in court.
In Utah, persons operating a vehicle with a BAC of .05% or higher is guilty of DUI.
The ramifications of a DUI conviction can be severe. They can range from up to 6 months of jail time and a minimum fine of $1,000, and go up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
In addition to these penalties, your license will also be revoked for 120 days.
