DEFENSE FOR VIOLENT CRIMES IN SALT LAKE CITY
Violent crimes are considered to be those committed under threat of force. A wide variety of violent crimes are prosecuted in Utah. Some crimes are considered minor misdemeanors while others are charged as serious felonies. If you are charged with two or more violent crime felonies, then a third conviction could render you a "habitual violent offender" under Utah Annotated Code § 76-3-203.5. A violent crime may also be exacerbated by additional aggravating factors, such as if a child witnessed the crime or if a dangerous weapon was used in the commission of the crime.
At True West Legal, we believe that it is important to be highly educated so that we can build the best possible defenses for our clients.
Examples of violent felonies include:
- Aggravated arson
- Aggravated assault
- Aggravated burglary
- Child abuse
- Domestic violence in a child's presence
