Sex Related Charges
Sex related crimes are a specialized category of crimes in Utah. They are enhanceable, meaning that subsequent charges carry additional penalties.
Sex related crimes are prosecuted aggressively in Utah and require the skill, persistence and knowledge of a highly skilled attorney.
Sex crimes frequently carry mandatory minimum jail (less than 1 year) or prison time (more than a year).
Many sex offenses require registration on Utah's sex offender registry upon conviction. Registration is anywhere between 10 years to the registrant's lifetime, depending on the severity of the charges. The sex offender registry is public information.
