The sentencing guidelines for possession charges in Utah are extremely severe. Along with staggering fines, jail or prison time is almost assured. Additionally, a possession charge can be elevated to a more serious charge if there is significant paraphernalia, including baggies, scales or other tools presumed to be used for sales or distribution. As such, it is extremely important to aggressively defend against any possession charge.Oftentimes charges are brought based on ill-gotten evidence or a violation of rights. This may include:Search and seizure — did the officer have the right to stop a vehicle and/or a suspect and search/seize the property/premise?Scope of search — did the officer obtain a warrant or have probable cause to make any searches?
