When facing prosecution for DUI, you want a good defense attorney on your side. Attorneys defending DUI cases need to understand more than just the standard courtroom rules and processes. Defending against a charge of DUI can require specific knowledge relating to the testing procedures used by police, and the ability to spot weaknesses or problems in the way police administer those tests.
Most DUI cases in Utah are based on the level of the driver’s blood alcohol content, or BAC. Utah’s “per se” limit of 0.05 can make defending a DUI case more difficult. There may still be several options to consider.
Drug-related DUI charges are also common in Utah courts, and can be based on a test detecting an active controlled substance or just a controlled substance metabolite. Either way, the consequences can be the same.
If you are accused of driving under the influence, whether in district court or in a justice court, it is important to have an experienced DUI defense attorney represent you. The consequences of a conviction can be serious.
