Our Utah Sex Crime Attorneys work to prevent overzealous prosecution
If you’re charged with a sex crime, it pays to retain an experienced sex crimes lawyer at Fillmore Spencer LLC to defend your rights. Here’s why:
Utah lawmakers have gotten tougher on sex crimes, because the number of sex offenders in Utah state prisons in 2013 was double that of 1996. More sex offenders in Utah are sent to prison than placed on probation, and they serve longer sentences: In 2012, 92 percent of first-degree felony sex offenders went to prison, up from 72 percent in 1988. And over that same time period, the length of time served doubled.
Sexual offenses include rape, statutory rape, sexual assault and a host of more serious and lesser offenses. With sex crimes, allegations immediately effect the reputation of the accused.
