Felony DUI Salt Lake, Utah

Felony DUI Defense Lawyer and Felonies Law Firm Salt Lake

Any drunk driving arrest can represent serious trouble for the defendant, but repeat charges or felony charges can result in years of license suspension and even extended jail or prison terms. For experienced, resourceful, and aggressive defense of your interests in a repeat offense or felony DUI case, contact the Jardine Law Offices in Salt Lake City.

Felony charges, or offenses that can be punished by a year or more in prison, can be brought against a person arrested for DUI under the following circumstances:

  • A third offense DUI conviction in a ten-year period.
  • Alcohol-related motor vehicle accident involving injury to another.
  • Automobile homicide or involuntary manslaughter while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Increased penalties short of felony sanctions can also be imposed for any repeat or multiple DUI conviction, for drunk driving with a child in the car, or for drunk driving while on "alcohol-restricted driver" (ARD) status. If you are covered under the ARD laws, you can be arrested and punished for driving with any measurable amount of alcohol in your system.

Aside from the jail or prison terms that a felony or repeat DUI conviction can carry, any person convicted of drunk driving is likely to be covered under Utah's recently enacted Interlock Restricted Driver (IRD) Law. Anyone who is convicted of a drug or alcohol related driving offense would need to use an ignition interlock device for a period of three to ten years, depending on the specific underlying offense. Persons covered under the IRD law will have their ignition interlock period extended for another three years for any additional drunk driving offense, and if they drive a car without the ignition interlock device installed, the vehicle can be impounded.

Against this backdrop of increasingly severe drunk driving penalties, Salt Lake City criminal defense attorney Joseph Jardine offers his clients a winning combination: a comprehensive understanding of Utah DUI law and the courtroom skill necessary to make the most of your defense.

Criminal trial defense is the heart of Joseph Jardine's practice. With the support of a highly accomplished team of investigators and forensic experts, he is not afraid to present your defense to a jury whenever it is in your best interests. If you are facing charges of felony or repeat DUI, you owe it to yourself to retain a defense lawyer who knows how to win.
