West Jordan Law

I was in a car accident about a month ago. I had to be taken to the hospital. When I woke up I was told I was above the legal limit. No one else was hurt but me. I got a letter in the mail stating they were charging me with a DUI and Reckless driving. How will I know if my drivers license is still good? It was never taken away from me and the cops never came to visit me in the hospital.
You will get a notice of suspension. Note however, it will be mailed to whatever address was on the license you had on...
I got one October of last year and they gave me a plea in abeyance it hasn't been a year sense then so I don't know If I failed the plea or not.
I see no one has answered your question. Consider speaking with a local DUI lawyer. Most will give you a free...
The first DUI i got pulled over for i pleaded guilty to an impaired driving charge, while on probation i got pulled over for the second time (stupidity at its finest). my question is that would the first charge be upgraded to a DUI, and the second charge a second DUI, or is it possible for a Defense lawyer to make a deal to allow the first one to be as it is and the second one to be charged as a first DUI conviction, and if it is, would my driver licence suspension be reduced from two years to 120 days ?
The impaired driving conviction could be upgraded as a DUI. It depends on what type of impaired driving you entered a...
My daughter was out with a friend and she is not much of a drinker. She told her friend she would be the Designated Driver and only had 1 drink over a 2 hour period. She was driving her friend's car which had a missing headlight and was pulled over. The officer had been watching the bar and asked if she had been drinking. She told him she only had 1 drink but he proceeded to give her the sobriety test. Her friend in the car said she did very well. The officer gave her a breath test after asking her several questions, one of which, if she wore a retainer. She does wear a retainer and told him twice. He did not have her remove it. "The Baker Law" She blew a .088. After review of tape,in order to show cause, officer had asked twice and we thought it was over. Nope, a jury trial in Sept????
It appears that the judge is allowing the breath test result into evidence. From the facts, as stated, the breath test...
The reason being is I've Gotten married and had a son all within that time so life is a bit crazy and it sadly enough kept slipping my mind. But I've went to court got issued 300$ fine plus 2 days community service but I didn't do either. And now I have a $1500 bail. I was wondering if I just pay that entirely would there still be any consequences or will that wipe me clean of all of this. Like including ticket and all or is the bail a separate payment?
You need to go to the court where you received the fine and community service to clear this matter up. The reason for...
I have a 6 year old warrant in Utah for 2nd dui. I appeared in court and sentencing, but did not fullfill my terms of probation(classes,fines). I would like to take care of it asap, not sure if a lawyer is beneficial or just turn myself in?. All help is appreciated.
I would suggest that a lawyer might keep you out of custody- they will be able to allay some of the court's...
I was represented by a public defender and entered a plea to a DUI. The Court gave me community service instead of jail, but also put me on two years probation to be supervised by the Dept. of Corrections Adult Probation & Parole. Court also ordered no alcohol. I have my first meeting with my probation officer on Thursday, and am wondering if AP&P does ETG urinalysis to test for alcohol consumption. I called my public defender and he said he withdrew after the sentencing and couldn't tell me. Wondering if anyone knows whether AP&P does ETG testing for court-ordered probation. Thanks.
If you have a condition of no alcohol while you are on probation, then you can bet your probation officer will either...
