The Sunset Justice Court has jurisdiction over class C and class B misdemeanor level offenses that occur within the borders of Sunset, Utah. Misdemeanor cases commonly heard in Utah’s justice court system include domestic violence, drug charges, DUI and other alcohol-related offenses, shoplifting, and traffic-related offenses. Penalties can include jail time and substantial fines. If a suspended sentence is granted, the justice court can impose supervised probation with treatment or counseling, drug testing, community service, and a variety of other probation conditions. In addition to penalties and conditions imposed directly by the court, a justice court conviction can carry collateral consequences that can include loss of professional licensing, driver license suspension, loss of the right to carry a firearm, and more.
