How Is Aggravated DUI Different from a Regular DUI?
An Aggravated DUI is similar to a regular DUI but with one key difference - a prior DUI offense. If you have been arrested for DUI, you can be charged with an Aggravated DUI if you have been previously convicted of a DUI within the past 10 years (or 15 years if the prior offense was alcohol-related). In Utah, you may be charged with Aggravated DUI if you:
- Have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.16 or higher
- Are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Have a BAC of 0.15 or higher if you are driving a commercial vehicle
If you have been convicted of two or more DUIs within a 10-year period, you may be charged with a third or subsequent Aggravated DUI. Third or subsequent Aggravated DUIs are considered felonies in Utah.
Penalties for Aggravated DUI in Utah
The penalties for Aggravated DUI in Utah can be severe. For a first offense, you may be sentenced to up to one year in jail, fined up to $1,000, or both. For a second offense, you may be sentenced to up to five years in prison, fined up to $5,000, or both. Third and subsequent Aggravated DUIs are class A misdemeanors and are punishable by up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000, or both. In addition, if convicted of a third or subsequent Aggravated DUI, you may have your driver's license suspended for three years, five years, or even revoked for life.
