DUI crash ends with prison time for Utah driver

During that time, both officials and the accused will scrutinize the evidence to determine charges, whether rights were violated and whether a plea bargain would be the best course of action for everyone involved. For instance, a woman accused of causing the death of a 4-month-old infant back in Aug. 2016 ("Driver faces charges of vehicular homicide and DUI after crash," Aug. 9, 2016) recently received consecutive prison sentences between zero and five years for crimes to which she pleaded guilty.
