DUIs can come with many serious consequences. In some situations, DUIs may have factors that result in enhanced penalties, which can be even more detrimental to your life. I provide legal support in many DUI cases to help prevent these cases from completely derailing your life. When it comes to DUIs with enhanced penalties, it is critical to seek legal representation to protect yourself and ensure the best outcome for the situation. It is important to note that DUI laws and charges will vary depending on the state in which the DUI occurred. If you are being charged with a DUI with enhanced penalties in Utah, you should consider contacting me for further guidance to help you throughout this case.
DUIs often come with larger penalties when you have previously been charged with a DUI. The more previous charges that you have, the larger the consequences are likely to be. If you are charged with a repeat DUI in Utah, it is vital to consult with me, Zachary C. Holbrook, for legal guidance. I strive to ensure the best possible outcome for your situation. Due to the serious consequences that can come with repeat offenses, it is important to understand what happens with DUIs with enhanced penalties.
Extreme Speeding or Reckless Driving
Other DUIs with enhanced penalties can occur when you have obtained the DUI while driving particularly recklessly. Though the exact specifications will fluctuate between states, in many cases, if you were caught driving around 20 to 30 miles over the speed limit, you are likely to be charged with enhanced penalties. Keep in mind that the speed at which you were driving or the severity of the traffic violation that got you pulled over will likely have a substantial impact on the charges associated with your DUI.
Minor in Vehicle
When a minor is present in the vehicle, it is very likely that you will have enhanced penalties. However, keep in mind that in some situations, there will be a completely separate charge for child endangerment. When you have been charged with a DUI, while you had a minor in your vehicle, it is absolutely critical to consult with me regarding your case. Otherwise, there are likely to be substantial problems that come along with your DUI case. This is just one of the ways in which DUIs with enhanced penalties may occur.
Once again, the laws regarding DUI charges will vary between states. Due to this, the specific blood alcohol content that results in DUIs with enhanced penalties will fluctuate. In many cases, if you have a particularly high BAC, it is possible that you will be charged with a DUI with enhanced penalties. Keep this in mind when you learn about the various factors of your specific DUI case. You will also want to learn the various laws in your particular state to get a better sense regarding how your DUI may impact your life.
If you caused damage to another person’s property as a result of your DUI, it is possible that your DUI will come with enhanced penalties. This can occur because you were in a car accident, hit another person’s fence, or in many other situations. DUIs that result in property damage will ultimately come with enhanced penalties that may be avoided in situations without property damage. Contact me for the appropriate legal guidance if your DUI case involves property damage that may result in a DUI with enhanced penalties.
If you have injured another person during your DUI, it is very likely that your DUI will come with enhanced penalties. When you get behind the wheel while intoxicated, you are putting other people at risk. If this causes injury or death to another person, you are extremely likely to face much more severe charges throughout your situation. It is absolutely critical to contact me during these cases to help guide you through the case. The right legal guidance can help to create a much better outcome for your situation.
Possible Charges of a DUI
Understanding the possible charges that come with a DUI can help you to understand what to expect throughout the process. Different charges will apply to different DUI situations and the state in which the offense occurred will impact the charges of a DUI. Contact me for more information about the possible consequences of your specific DUI case. A DUI may result in imprisonment or community service. It is also possible that these charges will include fines, court-mandated alcohol treatment and assessment, and time on probation. Your license may be suspended or revoked when you are charged with a DUI, especially if you experience a DUI with enhanced penalties. There will also likely be insurance consequences associated with a DUI, though this is outside of the court process. An insurance company may raise your premiums or cut off your policy altogether after you have been involved in a DUI.
