If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime in juvenile court in Utah, it is important to contact an attorney to help you determine what your rights are, and most importantly how to best handle the charges against you.
The Utah Juvenile Court system is separate from the Utah Justice Courts (where most misdemeanors are tried), or the Utah District Courts (where most felonies are tried). The Utah Juvenile Court system also has its own set of rules in addition to those of the Utah Rules of Criminal Procedure. The Juvenile Courts system can be a very difficult path to forge on your own.
