Salt Lake City Violent Crimes Attorney
Defending Against Violent Crime Charges in Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Morgan, & Box Elder Counties
Criminal arrests and charges can be devastating to your life and future. This is especially true when the offense you are facing is one that involves violence. Violent crimes are the most serious of all crimes due to their harm or threat of harm to human life. Law enforcement and prosecutors work aggressively to identify, arrest, charge, and convict anyone they suspect to have committed a crime of violence. Judges severely punish those who have been found guilty. You could be facing years in prison, heavy fines, and a future with a permanent criminal record that can heavily impact your ability to gain employment, housing, advanced education, and more.

What Are The Penalties For Violent Crimes in Utah?
In Utah, violent crimes are punished harshly in an attempt to teach you a lesson, protect the public, and send a message to others. They are generally charged as felonies that come with years in prison and fines that can reach up to $10,000. For instance, a first-degree felony charge is punishable by five years up to life in prison with fines of up to $10,000.
Convictions of these crimes may result in the judge ordering restitution to be paid to the alleged victim for any damages caused by the crime, such as property damage or other expenses. Victims of violent crimes may also file personal injury claims in civil court seeking damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Thus, you could be facing both criminal and civil court cases that can be overwhelming.
