    Question DUI Chemical Test Refusal in Utah

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Utah

    I was arrested and refused the chemical test once arriving at the jail. I have plead guilty. Can you give me an idea of what consequences I may face because I refused the chemical test?

    Depends on how old you are and whether you have any DUI or related priors. Expect 18 months suspension and an interlock for several years beyond that. That's all the adminsitrative penalty. Then you go to court on the DUI and you can expect several thousand dollars in fines and costs and either 48 hours in jail (which may be dealt out to home confinement or community service). You might get up to six months. There may be other hoops imposed by the court (counselling/assesments, etc..).

    You'd be advised to get a lawyer.

    Automatic revocation of license for 18 months. Chemical assessment, unsupervised probation for 2 years. Driver's license reinstatement fee. Etc.
