Utah Property Crimes
Utah Property crime is just that, any crime against property. This can be vandalism, burglary, theft, arson, etc. Like most areas of criminal law, depending on the crime and the circumstances surrounding it, the offender could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony.
If you are convicted of a crime against property in Utah restitution is always required. Not only will you likely be fined by the court, in addition to any other penalty, but you’ll have to pay the value of whatever was stolen or damaged. In addition, the victim in these types of crimes is able to testify against you, be present for the testimony of potential witnesses, and even has a say in potential plea bargains.
