If you have been arrested for statutory rape in the state of Utah, it is critical to obtain experienced legal counsel. A statutory rape carries serious penalties, including prison time. Under “Jessica’s Law” a version of which was recently enacted in Utah, certain felony convictions will result in a mandatory 25 year sentence. And upon release, you will be required to register as a sex offender. Placement on the sex offender registry will ensure that the stigma of a conviction will last long after you complete your sentence.
