Charged with a Violent Crime in Utah?
Abuse, Assault and Endangerment.
A violent crime conviction can have long-term harmful effects.
When a person is convicted of a violent crime, they can expect social stigma, decreased trust by the community, and to have less appeal to employers. In addition, they are subject to the secondary penalties that attach to a violent crime conviction. These are called collateral consequences.
Unlike jail or prison time, fines and probation, these are not the direct effects of a conviction. However, they have a serious impact on the person's life and freedom.
