Typical of Utah. I've read studies indicating that texting while driving is actually much more dangerous than driving under the influence of alcohol and reponsible for more accidents, fatal and non-fatal, and this person is spared jail time. Do you really think they would have received the same leniency if alcohol or drugs were involved? Wake up lawmakers.
