Salt Lake City DUI Lawyer

In recent years, DUI’s have become more common on our court system. Police have squads dedicated to DUI prosecutions and the legislature has made dealing with these cases more limited and difficult. DUI’s consist of 2 aspects, criminal (court) and administrative (driver license per se hearing).

400-04330963A DUI conviction exposes the defendant to minimum mandatory sentencing with only limited discretion on the part of the judge. Also, once convicted, a defendant will be subject to increased (surcharges) insurance premiums for several years. A DUI is an enhanceable offense with a third charge in 10 years with 2 prior convictions being a charged as a THIRD DEGREE FELONY which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison.

Often the reasons given by police for arrests are not legally sufficient and are subject to challenge in court.

A per se hearing before the Driver License Division can result in the suspension of one’s driving privilege for a minimum of 120 days up to several years. The per se hearing must be demanded in writing within 10 days of the date the notice is served by police.

Hence, it is imperative that counsel be retained immediately to protect a defendant’s rights to protect their driving privilege and prevent a criminal conviction.
