Utah Criminal Laws

State criminal laws are a combination of what we call "common law," which includes crimes such as burglary and murder, and statutes addressing newer types of crimes or changing cultural mores (such as discrimination or laws prohibiting pyramid schemes). Welcome to FindLaw's section on Utah's criminal laws, with legalese-free descriptions of the Beehive State's criminal laws. This section covers property crimes, crimes against individuals, sexual crimes, white collar crimes (such as fraud), and more. Specifically, you'll find articles covering drug laws in the state; child abuse and domestic violence; technology-based crimes such as identity theft; and homicide-related crimes.
