DUI – Second Offense in Utah

There are some questions you should ask yourself if you have been charged with a second DUI within 10 years in Utah;

  1. Were you represented by an Attorney with your first DUI?
  2. If not, did you knowingly waive your right to an Attorney?
  3. Did you plead guilty without a Trial?

All of these questions are important. The reason is that if these questions are answered correctly then there may be a possibility that the Prosecutor cannot use your first DUI to enhance your second one. This is again another reason you need an attorney that understands DUI law and procedure. Give us a call today for a free consultation at (801) 475-0123.

Case Law:

State v. Ferguson, 2007 UT 1, 169 P.3d 423.
