In Utah, a third DUI within a 10 year period is charged as a third degree felony. Individuals charged with this offense are facing a 0-5 year jail sentence if convicted. Other penalties may include a substantial fine, an interlock device, alcohol screening and ordered treatment, electronic home monitoring, and of course, license suspension. If convicted the penalties can have a lasting effect on an individuals ability to gain meaningful employment.
