Sentencing for Sex Crimes and Sex Offender Registration
Utah uses something called an “intermediate sentencing system” meaning that a judge and the Board of Pardons and Parole has some discretion in determining a defendant’s release date and sentencing requirements. The caveat is that some sex crimes carry mandatory sentencing requirements in which a defendant who is convicted of a certain crime, such as sexual assault, is required to spend a specific amount of time in prison.
Hiring a defense attorney that specializes in defending those who have been charged with sex crimes is generally worth the time and effort since defendants who are convicted generally continue to feel the effects of of conviction long after the case is over.
