Remember - DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY TO YOUR UTAH DUI CHARGE! Your first DUI in Salt Lake City (or anywhere in Utah) could cost you as much as $10,000 in fines, so it's important that you fight it aggressively. There are things the Utah DUI prosecutors and courts don't want you to know. You need a DUI attorney in Salt Lake City who has knowledge, experience, and compassion for your charge and situation.
In Utah, being charged with driving under the influence can result in serious criminal penalties. In certain situations, the penalties for a DUI in Utah can even exceed the penalties for possessing a pound of heroin. You could face thousands of dollars in fines, get your license suspended, lose your job, or worse. If you are facing DUI charges in Salt Lake City or anywhere in the Utah area, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer or DUI attorney in Salt Lake City who will fight to make sure you are treated fairly--a lawyer who will aggressively defend your rights.
When you were charged with a DUI you may not have been told that you have two major deadlines which are rapidly approaching after you are arrested for driving under the influence. If you ignore them, the consequences could be devastating.
If you don't request a driver's license hearing in the first 10 calendar days, you will lose your license, regardless of how good your case might be. And there's nothing an attorney can do about it after the fact.
The second deadline is to contact the court no less than 5, nor more than 14 days. If you miss this deadline, the court WILL issue a warrant for your arrest and officer may be sent to your home or place of employment to arrest you.
There are several different ways to fight a DUI.
