Meaningful defense may benefit Utah man facing DUI charge

One man in Utah will undoubtedly be exploring his defense options after recently being charged. Reports stated that the man was allegedly behind the wheel of a vehicle that crashed into a home. Emergency crews arrived at the scene, and the man was taken to an area hospital due to suffering injuries in the incident. However, he was also under suspicion for DUI.

The man purportedly told EMTs that he had used heroin and consumed alcohol the night before the accident. Police also allegedly discovered heroin, meth, marijuana and unspecified drug paraphernalia at the scene of the crash. Additionally, the man had apparently been driving on a revoked license, and the vehicle did not have an ignition interlock device, which the man was also reportedly supposed to utilize. 

Tests at the hospital allegedly revealed that the man had drugs in his system. As a result, he is currently facing a charge for DUI, and due to having three prior convictions for DUI in the last 10 years, this current charge will be upgraded to a 3rd-degree felony. Other allegations, including various drug possession charges and driving on a revoked license, have also been brought against him.

In order to address his situation, he will certainly want to gain more information on the felony DUI and other specific charges brought against him and his defense options. Obtaining this information could help him determine what strategies may allow him to take a meaningful approach to his case. This type of situation could befall any Utah resident, and individuals who do find themselves in such a predicament may wish to consider speaking with experienced attorneys for assistance.
