Utah Sexual Assault and Pornography


Being convicted of any crime can harm your life and reputation. Conviction of a Utah sex crime, including sexual assault, carries an additional consequence: you may be required to register as a sex offender. Regardless of the facts or circumstances, details of your conviction, your personal information, and your picture will be available to employers, neighbors, romantic interests, and family at the click of a mouse.

Utah sex crimes carry a substantial risk of lengthy imprisonment and, even after release from jail or prison, the consequences linger on. You may be limited as to where you can live or work and the people with whom you may associate. Even if the charges are completely false, the mere allegation of having committed a sex or pornography crime can irreparably tarnish your reputation. To preserve your reputation and your future, you need a targeted, aggressive defense tailored specifically for your case.
