Getting Your Utah Conviction Reduced
Utah Conviction Reduction Law Firm
The state of Utah allows you to get your Utah conviction reduced to a lower offense at times by two degrees (e.g., from a class A misdemeanor to a class C misdemeanor) if you are otherwise eligible under Utah statutory law. In order to get your Utah criminal conviction reduced by one or two degrees you have to meet certain requirements.
The first thing you have to show is that you completed probation successfully. Secondly, if you were ordered to pay restitution, you had to have paid all of your restitution.
After the motion is filed, what’s next?
Once the lawyers at CrimeBeGone.com have petitioned the court on your behalf for a conviction reduction by filing a motion, the government’s lawyer, the prosecutor, may then let the victims of your crime know about the pending motion. The victims can then relay to the prosecutor their thoughts on the matter and the prosecutor will generally use their opinions in forming his own opinion on the request for reduction.
Many times the court will just issue on order based on the papers filed by the prosecutor and CrimeBeGone.com, but there are times when the court may require a hearing. At the hearing your CrimeBeGone.com attorneys will fight for your reduction and answer any concerns that the prosecutor or judge may have. After the hearing the judge will issue his decision.
