Fight for Your License
One of the most serious consequences of being convicted of a Utah traffic crime is that in many cases the conviction results in a loss of your Utah driving privileges. What’s more, this can happen without the judge specifically sentencing you to a loss of a driver’s license. Instead, what happen is that the court sends notice of a conviction to the Utah Driver’s License Division or Department of Motor Vehicles and then the DLD or DMV, by statutory authority, suspends or revokes the license. So what happens many times when defendants are not represented by an attorney is that they end pleading guilty in order to just the case out of the way and then end up losing their license because they had no idea that was a consequence of pleading guilty.
This is common for people who plead guilty to possession of marijuana or possession of drug paraphernalia, even if the possession charges had nothing to do with driving. For example, if you smoke marijuana on your house and are convicted for it or if you have a bong or a pipe in your backpack or briefcase and you are convicted for such possession you will lose your license for six months. That is why it is so important that you contact the criminal defense attorneys at Utah Defenders so that you can understand what consequences you are facing as well as obtain a competent legal defense team.
