Most Utah residents would agree that no one likes to see the flashing lights of a police cruiser in their rear view mirror. Being pulled over by police often means an expensive traffic citation and points on your license. In some cases, it can mean much more. You could be facing a first DUI charge if the officer suspects that you are driving under the influence.
A first offense for DUI is often considered a misdemeanor in Utah. If convicted, you would face a maximum of six months in jail and the suspension of your driver's license. This is only the minimum consequences that can result from a DUI charge. Depending on the circumstances, additional criminal charges could be filed, which could potentially lead to harsher penalties.
