    22 hrs ago | via Ruidoso News 

    A polygamous family says the landmark Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage shows that laws prohibiting consensual adult relationships are outdated even if the unions are unpopular. Kody Brown and his four wives argue in court documents filed Wednesday that their family life chronicled on the reality TV show "Sister Wives" shows that polygamous marriages can be as healthy as monogamous ones.

Reinstatement of Driver's Liscense Early?
Hello Thank you for your time, anyway I was arested for a Marijuana DUI back in September of 2014. I was 18 at the time and I agreed to all the testing. I was charged with DUI, possesion of Marijuana and failure to turn on headlights I pled Guilty simply because I thought it would be the quickest way to get through this mistake, I know that was dumb of me, I had no legal help at the time, no one represented me at the dmv hearing either, my local dmv says my lisense is supended until I turn 21 is there anything I can do? Please help. I've already paid all my fines and did all my classes, my probation is over in November. I am fully compliant with the courts. I just need my lisense back and need to know what I can do, Thanks again.

Friend got pulled over for suspicion of DUI but was not drinking only had Weed in system.
He was found with a blunt in his posession. They had him blow he blew zero, they took him in for a blood test, and booked him in jail. How strict are laws in Utah for this sort of crime since it's not alcohol related. Are they allowed to do both tests on him? What is the protocol for the police on the scene for this kind of crime. Is it easier to get these charges dropped in court compared to an alcohol DUI? I'm sure they will have him do a drug evaluation to determine probation and classes. How should he prepare for court if he can only afford a public defender? I know prolonging a trial usually helps get a better deal with a prosecutor, just looking for some advice to give him to prepare for his dmv hearing he will request before the 10 days and things that help in trial.
A DUI for having marijuana in your system carries very similar penalties to a DUI for having alcohol in your system. A...

It sounds like you'll do more jail time. A good attorney could help you mitigate your circumstance.
Can you get a Utah license if you have had a DUI in California and don't have SR22 Insurance?
My fiance had a DUI in California several years back. We are trying to clear it up currently. We want to know if SR22 insurance is required to get your license back in Utah. Since he got the DUI in California and he doesn't need a California driver's license, can we get it lifted here without SR22?
Below, I've written a guide on how to get your license back if you live out of state and got a DUI in CA.
