Misdemeanor Classification in Utah
Like felonies, misdemeanors in Utah are categorized according to degree. These classifications are as follows:
- Class A Misdemeanors: Punishable by up to one year in jail and/or up to $2,500 in fines
- Class B Misdemeanors: Punishable by up to six months in jail and/or up to $1,000 in fines
- Class C Misdemeanors: Punishable by up to 90 days in jail and/or up to $750 in fines or compensatory service
Many offenses can be charged as misdemeanors. DUIs, shoplifting, marijuana and paraphernalia possession, domestic violence charges, and more serious traffic crimes can all be prosecuted as misdemeanors, as well as things like dog-at-large and licensing issues. In many cases, people who do not live in the area find themselves facing misdemeanor charges. If this is the case, you need an attorney to appear in court for you so you don't have to travel back for each court hearing.
