I received a citation for impaired driving when I lived In

I received a citation for impaired driving when I lived In PA. I went through all of the requirements for the state of PA and have a letter that the citation has been expunged, or is in the process of being so. I have since moved to Utah and when I attempted to get a Utah DL I received letters stating that I will need to get an ignition interlock device here and that my privileges are suspended. the letter said that I have 30 days from the receipt of the letter to appeal. Would my documents of the citation being expunged suffice? I am looking for a lawyer in Utah to help me with this.

LawEducator Esq;Hello.When you're @ Summ Judgement phase, is a plaintiff attorney suppose to garner up not only a deposition taken, (from the defts,but also attach evidence) of proof to support such lawsuit or is this only what the defendant is suppose to do, since isn't it true, the defense are the ones who have such burden to prove that(a geniuine issue) does not exist for damages/trial.-I am befuddled on this part because unless i'm wrong i assume evidence on pltf end, has to attach some evidence,(lawyer said no, that the state has the burden to prove no genuine issue)and how also we presented depo's,(5)and it prove the voluminous amount of inconsistencies/lies/perjury and other relevance and also how (our own live testimony)me and my child is needed, and how again only" 1 genuine fact has to be presented/raise the issue and lawyer said, that is why we did not have to exert alot of evidence to support our claim at summ judgement.Is this true?

My 16 yr old son saw a fight and told the police what he

My 16 yr old son saw a fight and told the police what he saw. I got a phone call tonight saying that he is being charged with a misdemeanor for not telling the truth.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: He says he didn't lie because there wasn't anything to lie about. They are saying that if he admits to lying he will get probation for 3 months if not we have to go to court. Does any of this sound right? None of it sounds right to me. As if they are trying to scare us into admitting something he didn't do. What should we do?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: My son didn't file or write anything. I never received anything in the mail prior to the callJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: He did record the video. He told the officer he recorded it and gave the officer his phone to watch it. The officer assured my son he couldn't get in trouble for recording the fight and told him to keep the video.
