Suppressing Evidence in Utah DUI Cases

In Utah DUI cases are prosecuted very heavily, in fact Utah is one of the worst states to be charged with a DUI because there is such little leeway for defendants. Two scenarios where DUIs are especially difficult to fight are when the charged individual has a high BAC or when its a second DUI. In Utah a second DUI means a mandatory 10 days in jail or 240 hours of community service. However, some prosecutors will not allow for the 240 hours of community service option so the defendants in those cases will have to serve the 10 days of jail. Furthermore, some prosecutors will refuse to make a deal with defense attorneys even on a first DUI if the BAC is over a certain level, that level is different depending which prosecuting officer your case is with.
