The illegal use and possession of narcotics are punishable by law in the state of Utah. Narcotics include but are not limited to cocaine, crack, heroin, LSD, marijuana, methamphetamine (meth), steroids, opium, and unauthorized prescription drugs. The classification of drug crimes usually depends on the type and amount of drug involved as well as the severity of the crime committed.
Those convicted of drug-related offenses may face various punishments, including jail time, fines, community service, probation, and court-ordered treatment. In some cases, these penalties may be increased for offenders who have a prior criminal record or who have been convicted of drug crimes in the past. Additionally, those who solicit drugs from minors may also face enhanced penalties.

Domestic Violence Cases
Domestic violence is a serious problem across the country, and Utah is no exception. As a result, those convicted of domestic violence will face strict punishments. Depending on the charges’ severity and criminal history, they may be required to pay a fine or serve jail time. They will also be placed on probation for 12 to 24 months, during which they will receive treatment, classes, or testing. This can be costly, both financially and emotionally.
A domestic violence conviction can have far-reaching consequences beyond the criminal penalties ordered by the judge. A conviction can result in losing your right to bear arms and will appear on any background check for jobs, or renting an apartment. Depending on their background check policy, you may also be denied travel privileges to another country.
