Criminal Penalties in Utah

We get a lot of questions about criminal penalties in the law library.

The court's Criminal Penalties page explains the difference between felonies, misdemeanors and infractions. It also provides information about the different degrees and classes and the possible penalties - imprisonment and fines - for each level of offense.

The page also describes some of the things a judge considers when imposing a sentence, and provides an outline of the sentencing process.
