Felony DUI | Utah Criminal Defense Attorney
In Utah DUI charges can be in the form of misdemeanors or felonies. For a DUI to be charged as a felony a number of factors need to be in play. Probably the most common felony DUI scenario is if a person has been charged with three or more DUIs in the past 10 years. Other possible circumstances that could create a felony DUI charge are inflicting serious bodily injury in conjunction with a DUI or the person has previously been convicted of automobile homicide. For most people that are facing a felony DUI charge this is not their first run in with the court and they understand the uphill battle that faces them and the importance of having an attorney.
