Arrested for a subsequent DUI? Seek help as soon as possible

One conviction for being impaired behind the wheel here in Utah comes with both short-term and long-term penalties. One of the long-term consequences of a DUI conviction is that, if you are arrested on a subsequent drunk driving charge, the offense is considered more serious. This often means more penalties and other repercussions if you are convicted.

Utah woman arrested for DUI while sitting in parking lot

The Utah woman behind the wheel of a car told an officer that she was waiting for someone when he approached her vehicle. According to the officer, the vehicle was sitting in a convenience store parking lot when he drove by the first time. Since it was still there the second time he drove by, he decided to see if he could help the occupants. By the time his discussion with the woman was over, she was under arrest and facing a DUI charge, two counts of child endangerment and other offenses.

Could Utah expand child custody laws to include the family pet?

At present, the state of Utah provides no protections for the family pet when it comes to domestic violence or divorce. When it comes to divorce, family pets are considered property, which means that judges make decisions regarding their fate in accordance with asset division laws. However, a new law in the northernmost state of the country that now requires judges to apply rules similar to those for child custody to pets might begin persuading other states to follow suit.

Getting the most out of asset division in a Utah divorce

Your marriage is ending, and now you and your spouse begin the task of dividing your property. Most Utah residents believe that asset division is supposed to be an equal split, but that is not always the case. The key is for the division to be equitable and fair, which does not always equate to equal, though it often comes close.
