A first or second offense DUI within the past 10 years will be charged as a Class B Misdemeanor. A Class B Misdemeanor is punishable by 0-180 days in jail and a fine and fee of $1,850. If the offense involved an accident where any person was injured, including a passenger in the offender’s car, or if there was a child in the car under the age of 18 at the time of the offense, you will be charged with a Class A Misdemeanor. A Class A Misdemeanor is punishable by 0-365 days in jail and a fine and fee of $4,625. A first conviction for DUI in 10 years carries a minimum sentence of 2 days in jail (or at the judge’s discretion, 48 hours of community service), 12 months of probation, mandatory DUI treatment, and a minimum fine of $1,295.00. A blood alcohol level of .16 or greater also requires supervised probation and installation of an expensive, restrictive ignition interlock device. A second conviction for DUI in 10 years carries a minimum sentence of 10 days in jail (or at the judge’s discretion, 240 hours of community service), 12 months of supervised probation, increased mandatory DUI treatment, automatic installation of an ignition interlock device, and a minimum fine of $1,480.00. A third or subsequent conviction for DUI within 10 years can be charged as a Third Degree Felony. A Third Degree Felony is punishable by 0-5 years in the Utah State Prison, but a Third DUI carries a minimum mandatory jail sentence of 62 days with no option for community service. In addition, if you are convicted of an offense involving a Felony or Class A Misdemeanor, you will be required to give a DNA sample that will be placed in a law enforcement database for the rest of your life. DUI-related convictions also carry a significant public stigma, result in significantly increased auto insurance rates, and may cause problems when seeking employment.
