Criminal Appeals

The mission of Criminal Appeals is to defend just convictions, promote fair treatment for victims and defendants, and foster justice for the people of Utah.  To this end, the division’s attorneys represent the State of Utah in all appeals statewide from capital and felony convictions and juvenile delinquency adjudications.  They also represent the State of Utah in all state post-conviction and federal habeas proceedings, including all death penalty challenges.

In addition, the Criminal Appeals Division advises county prosecutors statewide on issues of criminal law and procedure, particularly in capital cases and cases presenting complex search and seizure issues.
