DUI in the state of Utah?
I was in Utah for the weekend and I had gotten pulled over for speeding in the process I told the police that i did have some marijuana with me . I do have a medical card for my condition from California state. And it is illegal to carry the marijuana with me in the state of Utah. I did get tested to see if I was sober and I did not pass even though i was not under the influence the police did not make there decision until they took my blood test, and I had told them that I was not smoking in this state of Utah. I was charged with a possession and a DUI but that was after they took my blood test that they found thc ofcourse they were because I am a regular smoker. But when they took the breathalizer it was a 0.0 nothing. What can I do?

Why did I get charged with a DUI? On Feb 28th 2013. My roommate and I were heading to a wrecking yard. He was driving.
We hit the edge of a cement barrier. It flattened the right front tire. We stopped. We got out and he started walking to the wrecking yard to get a rim and tire. We had no spare. I stayed with the truck. I was standing about 20 feet away from the truck. About 5 minutes later a police officer pulled up. I was drinking heavily the night before and I was drinking that afternoon also. I explained to the officer what happened. I told him my roommate was driving. We had a flat and that my roommate was walking to the yard to get a tire. We were not pulled over. And I was not in the truck. He did not believe me. I told him to head to the wrecking yard and find my roommate. he arrested me for a DUI. Did not check to find roommate. Also the truck is his and the truck is in his name. court 6-2-15.

My daughter's dad, has a drinking problem. I do not want him driving with her, especially if he has had a DUI, or suspended DL
I turned him in, when he picked her up, and looked and smelled intoxicated.
It is good you are concerned for your daughter's safety. Do you have a question to ask?
I just received a withheld judgement for DUI in Idaho. I have a Utah driver license.
Once the DUI is dismissed in Idaho after successful 1 yr probation, will Utah still require the installation of an interlock device for 18 months?
Good question. I think it will, but take my answer with a grain of salt because I am not licensed to practice law in...
