Charged with a Property Crime in Utah?
Burglary, Trespassing and Property Destruction.
A domestic violence conviction can have long-term harmful effects.
Domestic violence is a violent crime. 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 domestic violence 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.
A domestic violence case almost never has a clearly innocent party, or a clearly guilty one.
