Q: How should we plead for an 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 license 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.

A: Philip’s answer: She needs a Utah DUI defense lawyer. The penalty for the Alcohol Restricted Driver conviction is brutal. The standard fine is even higher than the DUI fine. Further, the "collateral consequences" of the conviction are also very harsh. Upon conviction, the Drivers License Division will suspend your daughter's driving privilege for an additional year, and require that she install an ignition interlock device in any vehicle she owns or operates for 3 years. I highly recommend that you contact a lawyer for advice specific to your daughter's case.

Q: Case Review what is it?: I went to court today for my Misdemeanor B charge and talked to my lawyer, and he asked the Judge for the Case Review to be set and told me to come back on Feb 9th 15 I am very confused what is Case Review? and what happens during Case Review Hearing?

A: Philip’s answer: You have a lawyer. If you have a question about your case, you should ask your lawyer, not the AVVO community. Your lawyer will have the best answer, based on the most complete and current information. A web site is never an adequate substitute for competent legal counsel. Call your attorney. It's that simple.

Q: Requesting Court Documents: I live in Utah and was convicted of a DUI in 2010, i completed a Prime For Life course and the court copied my certificate for proof. I am wanting to get my drivers license back and the DLD needs proof. I have since lost my certificate and the location i did it at didn't keep a record for some reason. So the only proof i have is the copy that should be on file for my DUI case. Is there any way i am able to request a copy from the court?

A: Philip’s answer: Were you under 21 when you were convicted of DUI? If not, then you shouldn't need to show proof of Prime for Life to reinstate your license. If you had a lawyer, I would try your lawyer first- he may have a copy of your certificate in your file. If not, then the court may be able to provide you with the proof either by getting a copy out of your physical file or just getting you a copy of the minute entry that indicates they got the proof of completion.
