Is your conviction within 28 days? 28 days is the statutory limit on the time to appeal your conviction? I have limited information, but it sounds like your only option is to file an appeal. You probably need a lawyer. A lawyer could have helped you avoid this in the first place.See question
Already did all my classes, paid all fines.. license suspension until I'm 21 for weed dui. Plead Guilty because I was consfused. Please help anything I can do to get my license back sooner? I'm 19.
More information is needed to answer the question. The rules regarding suspension are very complicated and will depend on exactly what you were arrested, charged and convicted of. Your precise age at the time of certain events related to the charge, as well as the administrative hearing outcome if any. If you had an attorney in court for your plea, contact that attorney, or find a new attorney to meet with to discuss your options.

My 19-year old daughter was pulled over for drinking and blew under the legal limit, but she was attested by the officer because she was underage. This is her first time she has even been in trouble. The officer gave her an alcohol restricted dr...
She needs a Utah DUI defense lawyer. The penalty for the Alcohol Restricted Driver conviction is brutal. The standard fine is even higher than the DUI fine. Further, the "collateral consequences" of the conviction are also very harsh. Upon conviction, the Drivers License Division will suspend your daughter's driving privilege for an additional year, and require that she install an ignition interlock device in any vehicle she owns or operates for 3 years. I highly recommend that you contact a lawyer for advice specific to your daughter's case.
I went to court today for my Misdemeanor B charge and talked to my lawyer, and he asked the Judge for the Case Review to be set and told me to come back on Feb 9th 15 I am very confused what is Case Review? and what happens during Case Review Hear...
You have a lawyer. If you have a question about your case, you should ask your lawyer, not the AVVO community. Your lawyer will have the best answer, based on the most complete and current information. A web site is never an adequate substitute for competent legal counsel. Call your attorney. It's that simple.
I live in Utah and was convicted of a DUI in 2010, i completed a Prime For Life course and the court copied my certificate for proof. I am wanting to get my drivers license back and the DLD needs proof. I have since lost my certificate and the lo...
Were you under 21 when you were convicted of DUI? If not, then you shouldn't need to show proof of Prime for Life to reinstate your license. If you had a lawyer, I would try your lawyer first- he may have a copy of your certificate in your file. If not, then the court may be able to provide you with the proof either by getting a copy out of your physical file or just getting you a copy of the minute entry that indicates they got the proof of completion.
I currently have a case for improper backing and never having obtained a license, I went into court and asked for a plea in abeyance and I have a set pre-trial hearing. I was driving again and received another citation for never having obtained a ...
I agree with attorney Neeley. Seek the advice of an attorney in southern Utah who can help you on a more personal level. Your case sounds complicated enough that you likely wont get adequate advice from Avvo.
I was stopped after a 6 hr drive from St.George to Roy, in Layton. The cop charged me with a DUI. When they took me to the station for the piss test the THC line was faint. I didn't even know what it was then he asked me if I smoked spice.. I d...
DUIs are brutal in Utah. Talk to a lawyer ASAP. Most lawyers will do a free consultation and help you get a hearing scheduled for your driver's license. Don't wait- you only have 10 days to request a hearing and if you miss the deadline your license will be toast. After your driver's license is safe, you can move on to the criminal case in the court.
I am currently enrolled in a theraputic Boarding school in Utah and i am 18 years old . Will me being in the program effect my sentence?
Retail theft in Utah is typically a Class B Misdemeanor and the penalties are $0 - $1900 in fines and 0 - 180 days in jail. Retail Theft can be enhanced to a Third Degree Felony if there are prior convictions. A 3rd Degree Felony is punishable by up to 5 years in prison.
Your participation in programs that are meant to attend to whatever underlying issues you might have that put you in the criminal justice system will typically show the judge that you are taking the offense seriously and may lead to some benefit to you at sentencing.
What is going to happen on the probation charge?
It ultimately depends on whether the court he is currently on probation with discovers the new offense before the end of the 18 months and files an "Order to Show Cause" for an alleged probation violation. If they don't file the OSC before the expiration of probation then the court will lose jurisdiction over your son and he will likely see no consequence from the court he is currently on probation with.
However, he may be subjected to increased penalties and stricter probation terms on the new offense if the new court is aware of the prior conviction and also aware that the new offense occurred while your son was on probation to another court.
If the court your son is currently on probation with does discover the new offense and files the OSC, then what will happen is completely dependent on the specific circumstances of your son's case. Some factors would include: the specific terms of his probation, the judge, his age, his criminal history, other probation violations, etc.
There is no way for a lawyer to accurately assess the potential consequences with out more information, including all of the items I listed above.
