Members of Utah National Guard in need of criminal defense

Those who are accused of non-violent crimes such as fraud, identity theft or burglary may not realize how significant the punishments can be. They may mistakenly believe that because they did not cause any physical harm to anyone, that prosecutors will be lenient. This is not always the case, as sentences for these types of crimes can include significant jail time, heavy fines or other forms of punishment. Four members of the Utah National Guard may discover this very fact if they are convicted on charges of fraud. They may choose to prepare a thorough criminal defense against these charges.

2 in Utah accused of burglary, drug crimes

When an individual is facing criminal charges relating to drugs, the stigma that might be associated can have consequences in other areas of the person’s life. He or she might be subject to unfair scrutiny from the rest of society, even if they are acquitted of the charges, making it difficult to obtain employment or apply for a mortgage. Here in Utah, two people were recently arrested for charges relating to burglary and drug crimes, and if they are convicted, their lives could be turned upside down.
