Single-vehicle crash leads to DUI charge in Utah

Often, when accused in any type of scenario, individuals have an instinctual reaction to defend themselves. This instinct can especially come in handy when a person has been accused of DUI. While it may not be the best course of action to start talking at the time of the arrest, reviewing criminal defense options may prove wise for court hearings.

One woman in Utah will undoubtedly want to defend against allegations for drunk driving that were recently brought against her. The charges stem from a single-vehicle accident that led to the injury of a 4-year-old child. It was unclear what exactly may have led to the accident, but the woman reportedly lost control of the vehicle and it left the road, which caused the vehicle to turn onto its side.

The child was ejected from the vehicle and taken from the scene for treatment of injuries. The harm she suffered was not considered life-threatening. It was not mentioned whether the driver was injured in the accident. Nonetheless, she was taken into custody on charges of DUI. Details were not given as to whether any tests were administered to determine her blood-alcohol concentration level.

A charge for DUI can come with serious and impactful consequences if a conviction takes place. Fortunately, this Utah woman has the opportunity to fight against such an outcome if she wishes. Exploring her criminal defense options may help her determine what courses of action she may feel most comfortable utilizing as her case moves through the criminal justice system.

  • Brian attended mediation with us today and he was a rockstar. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. I don't know what we would have done without his well-informed counsel and the way he stood up for us. He maintained a calm and authoritative demeanor, even in the presence of the 4 other attorneys on the other "sides". We will be recommending him to anyone who needs a family law attorney, and we'll be choosing him if we ever need one again! Read more...
