If you’ve been arrested and charged with a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), you could be facing some life-altering legal penalties. The final outcome could affect your driving record or result in the loss of driving privileges, significantly large fines, or even the temporary loss of your freedom.
A prior record or previous conviction for a similar offense could weigh very heavily on the process. Any damage to property or physical harm to another person will also play a major factor in how the case is adjudicated. By statute, a third DUI offense within 10 years will be charged as a felony, which carries a possible sentence of up to five years in the Utah State Prison.
