Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic Violence charges are a specialized category of crimes in Utah. They are enhanceable, meaning that subsequent charges carry additional penalties. They have minimum required sentencing requirements, which are considerable.
Domestic violence charges are pursued more aggressively than other types of charges and require the skill, persistence and knowledge of a highly skilled attorney.
Domestic violence charges are prosecuted even when the "victim" wishes to have the charges dismissed or does not want to cooperate with police.
A domestic violence conviction results in the prohibition of owning or carrying any firearms or dangerous weapons for any purpose, including home defense or hunting.
