DUI's happen everyday, and attorneys in Utah are all too aware of the often tragic results for the driver and the victims. In a recent incident, a man with a history of driving under the influence crashed through a carport into a duplex.
It is suspected that alcohol was a cause of the accident. Luckily the owner of the duplex and his two sleeping children were not harmed. However, the driver will not escape unscathed. With his extensive history of DUIs and other violations, he better hire a good Utah DUI lawyer to defend him.
Attorneys in Utah remind that driving under the influence is against the law and has more consequences than just the initial accident may cause. If you get a DUI you will need to pay court fines, pay the DMV to release your impounded car, and pay for a driver license reinstatement.
Additionally, if convicted, you’ll have to check on job applications that you have been convicted of a crime, and it will appear on your driving record. When you get your driver’s license back, you will be on alcohol restricted driver status.
Because of his previous DUI convictions, the driver was an alcohol-restricted driver and was required to have an interlock device any vehicle he operated, and the car he crashed into the duplex did not have one. This means he will likely face even more charges.
If charged with a DIU, it is best to consult with and hire a good Utah DUI lawyer to help with your case.
