Utah is a state which penalizes drug offenders to the full extent of the law. Drug charges are serious for a number of reasons, but specifically, Utah attempts to confiscate drug offenders’ driver’s license.
In Utah, a license to drive can be affected by any pending drug possession, distribution, manufacturing, trafficking, or other drug crime charge.
For drug offenders, it is extremely important to seek the legal counsel of an experienced attorney to avoid these consequences.

A person may be found guilty of manufacturing controlled substances if he or she manufactures, distributes, or possesses with the intent to distribute, an imitation controlled substance.
Manufacturing a Controlled Substance carries a penalty of up to one year in jail and up to $2,500 in fines.
In Utah, a drug offense may result in a revoked driver’s license for some. For minor individuals accused of a drug offense, this may result in a revoked driver’s license, for the longer of two years, or until the age of 21.
Loss of a driver’s license is a major inconvenience for most individuals, but especially those whose employment requires a valid license.
Losing a driver’s license is just a small part of the consequences of a drug offense. Fines and imprisonment are also common penalties for these offenses.
