Trial against UHP officer who lied in DUI cases will move forward

On Sept. 10, 2011, a man was driving home when he was pulled over by a trooper with the Utah Highway Patrol. The trooper allegedly stopped the man because he was swerving. She claimed that he failed a field sobriety test, administered a breath test and arrested him for DUI. The problem was that the breath test – and the blood test that was taken at the jail -- both proved that the driver had not been drinking. Thousands of dollars later, his name was cleared. 

What happens if you are charged with DUI a second or third time?

The state of Utah considers driving under the influence a serious concern for its residents. For this reason, the penalties associated with DUIs increase with the number of offenses. Therefore, if you are charged with a DUI for a second or third time, it is imperative that you engage criminal defense counsel as soon as possible to protect your rights.

Making the adjustment easier for the children in a divorce

Going from one household to two is often a challenge for Utah couples who are ending their marriages. However, when there are children involved, the importance of making a smooth transition becomes a significant priority for most parents. How children adjust during and following the divorce often sets the stage for the future. 

U.S. Supreme Court ruling puts light on refusal of DUI blood test

The United States Supreme Court recently made a ruling in a case for which it heard oral arguments in April. The issues before the court were whether those suspected of DUI can be arrested for refusing to submit to a breath test or a blood test. The court decided that drivers could be arrested for refusing a breath test, but not for refusing a blood test. This ruling is a good time to remind Utah residents what their rights are in reference to these impairment tests.
