ALCOHOL-RESTRICTED DRIVERS IN UTAH

Helping Clients Deal with the Consequences of DUI

Driving under the influence is a major crime that carries serious penalties. But even after the fines are paid and the sentence is served, the ramifications can continue for years. An alcohol-restricted driver in Utah is subject to supervision and numerous requirements, and violating these requirements can start the criminal process anew. At Intermountain Legal, we help clients deal with the lingering consequences of DUI, including Alcohol Restricted Driver issues.

Alcohol Restriction in Utah

Utah Law prohibits drivers previously convicted of DUI from driving with any alcohol in their body. As with drivers under the age of 21, it is a crime for a Utah alcohol restricted driver to operate a motor vehicle with any measurable level of alcohol in his or her system. For first-time offenders, the restriction remains in effect for two years. For repeat offenders, the restriction remains in effect for six years. This period does not begin to run until after applicable license suspensions have expired. Violating the restrictions of a conditional license is a Class B misdemeanor — the same level of crime as a first-time DUI. Even when your time as an ignition interlock restricted driver is up, you may still be an alcohol restricted driver.

Issues in Restricted Driver Cases

Most of the issues that appear in DUI cases can also be a factor in cases involving an alcohol restricted driver. The reasonableness of the stop, the accuracy of the testing equipment and other evidentiary issues frequently come into play. An experienced DUI and automobile homicide lawyer knows how to use these issues to obtain acquittals, dismissals and favorable plea bargains for clients. The attorneys of Intermountain Legal have worked on both sides of the aisle — as prosecutors and criminal defenders — and fully understand the issues that minor drivers and alcohol-restricted drivers face. We sympathize with what you are going through and fight for your rights every step of the way while keeping you informed about your case.
