Alcohol is a legal drug which can influence people to act in ways they normally would not. Alcohol crimes include crimes such as DUI, Underage Drinking, Intoxication, Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor, and Open Container in a Vehicle. Alcohol crimes are mostly misdemeanor, but can be enhanced, especially in the case of DUI where there are multiple prior convictions. Weber Law has extensive experience and success with alcohol crimes.
Drug crimes include possession of a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia, and drug distribution among others. Most drug crimes are misdemeanors, but distribution is a felony if not reduced through plea negotiation and can be a second degree felony if in a school zone. Weber Law is aggressive in fighting every drug case we receive. Weber Law has had many drug cases dismissed and has reduced or pled down many more.
Marijuana, a drug which is rapidly gaining acceptance in many parts of the country is still completely, and aggressively prohibited in Utah despite neighboring states’ of California, Colorado, Washington and Oregon liberalization to varying degrees. Utah Highway Patrol and Police are adept at tracking and locating marijuana through odor, behavioral clues, dog sniffs, criminal informant networks, and profiling. Weber Law handles cases of individuals traveling through Utah from those states as well as Native Utahans who have been accused of Marijuana possession.
