What will happen to me in court for a first time consumption charge in Utah
I was caught drinking on Saturday and by drinking I mean I had maybe a beer and blew a .073 I'm 19 and I'm getting ready to celebrate my 1 year anniversary with my husband who does not know about this. I'm worried I am going to get my license taken away. I have two jobs that i won't be able to get to and while I feel incredibly stupid I just need to know if there is anyway I won't get my license taken. I'm very tight on money so if I can't get to my jobs I won't be able to support me and my husband in the apartment that we are moving into.

"Inst it true once the jurisdiction is challenged it has to be proven on record " was ignored now what can i do void judgment?
i challenged jurisdiction and he said it was noted at beginning of trial. Then for sentencing i make special appearance and asked isn't it true it needs to be proven on record he just acted strange and said didn't we already go over this not answering the simple yes or no question. he then went on ignoring it. i know it can be challenged at anytime. what can i do? i read that it is void, or set aside, or vacate and others. What can i do? are all these terms different types of motions if so what is the one i should use or is there a better way then i have not seen yet? thanks
What type of case are you involved in?
First time offense, DUI options to approach the situation.
A couple days ago on my way home after hanging out with a friend I was charged with a DUI. I had just missed the curb as I was distracted, which caused me to swerve away from it. I pulled over to check my car, as I came back to the car, a police officer stopped to check on me. When I explained why I swerved and said I had just drank one beer and offered to take the sobriety test he told me I was okay to go as far as I had someone come to pick me up. When another officer arrived at the scene less than 1 minute from that, he came back and asked if I could take the test. He then proceeded to tell me I was intoxicated and that I needed to go back to the station, after seating in a room for 15-30 minutes while he filled up the information he ran the breathalyzer which ran at .09. During the time I waited he kept his back to me and did not check my mouth before proceeding. I found this shocking with having only having drank one beer. Should I be disputing this or trying to get this to lower charge it all feels strange and poorly done ??
Your mistake was talking to the cop and offering to help yourself get arrested, and possibly convicted. You should have...
If my husband gets a DUI in Utah can they take my house, cars and personal belonging if the title is in my name only?
I have a husband that thinks it ok to smoke marijuana and drive. I am concerned that if he is involved in a wreck heaven forbids that he may kill someone am I responsible or can they sue me for my house and other things if they are only in my name.
Any assets that are in your name are owned by you, not him. So it is highly unlikely anyone could come after them for...
Can an officer make me do a field sobriety test based on my criminal history?
I was pulled over by a motorcycle cop for a cracked windshield. I had all my documents necessary and I gave them to him. Another cop pulls up in a truck. They chit chat for a minute, then the truck cop comes to my door & asks me to step out so he can explain the ticket to me. I get out & we walk to the back of the car. The motorcycle cop tells me hes just giving me a fix it ticket & has me sign it. I was shaking a lil because every time I get pulled over by cottonwood heights cops it never turns out good. So then the motorcycle cop says hes seen that I have a criminal past with drugs and/or something recently with them. I say thats correct. Then he asks me if there's anything illegal in the car, I say no. Then he asks me if he can search the car, I say no, he asks why, I tell him I was on my way to pick my brother up & now im late. Then the truck cop starts saying something about my eyes and then asks me if im on drugs, I tell him no. Then he asks me if ill do a field sobriety test, I repeat everything I said before. Then the motorcycle cop snickers and says thats just his nice way of telling you you're going to do a field sobriety test based on your background. Is that legal?
No, a police officer is not supposed to make you do a field sobriety test. Those are, in theory, voluntary. My question...
