Ogden City Justice Court Information

The Ogden Justice Court has jurisdiction over class C and class B misdemeanor level charges that occur within the borders of Ogden, Utah. Class C and Class B misdemeanor charges can include minor speeding tickets, or more serious charges for domestic violence, DUI, drug charges, and theft. A class C misdemeanor can result in up to 90 days in the Weber County jail, and a class B misdemeanor carries the potential of up to 180 days in jail.

Along with the potential time in jail, there are fines and other collateral consequences of a conviction in a justice court that can include losing your driver's license or your right to own and possess firearms. Some justice court convictions can also be used as an enhancement for subsequent felony charges. So, despite being "just" a misdemeanor, these cases should be taken very seriously. Having the assistance of an experienced criminal attorney can give you the best chance of achieving a successful outcome.
