DUI in the state of Utah?
I was in Utah for the weekend and I had gotten pulled over for speeding in the process I told the police that i did have some marijuana with me . I do have a medical card for my condition from California state. And it is illegal to carry the marijuana with me in the state of Utah. I did get tested to see if I was sober and I did not pass even though i was not under the influence the police did not make there decision until they took my blood test, and I had told them that I was not smoking in this state of Utah. I was charged with a possession and a DUI but that was after they took my blood test that they found thc ofcourse they were because I am a regular smoker. But when they took the breathalizer it was a 0.0 nothing. What can I do?
It is always difficult to answer the question "what can I do" in a criminal case since your recollection of the events...
How should we plea at arraignment for alcohol ticket?
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 driver ticket (under age drinking ticket) and she had her driver's licence taken away immediately. The State of Utah is hold her license for 6 months. How should she plea at her arraignment? I read that she may lose her license for one full year if she pleas in abeyance.
Don't treat this as a DIY project like building a birdhouse at Home Depot. There's a lot on the line. At a minimum,...

So I got a ticket 3 years ago for underage drinking. I haven't paid it yet because of personal life reasons.
The reason being is I've Gotten married and had a son all within that time so life is a bit crazy and it sadly enough kept slipping my mind. But I've went to court got issued 300$ fine plus 2 days community service but I didn't do either. And now I have a $1500 bail. I was wondering if I just pay that entirely would there still be any consequences or will that wipe me clean of all of this. Like including ticket and all or is the bail a separate payment?
You need to go to the court where you received the fine and community service to clear this matter up. The reason for...
