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.

  • Selected Victories
  • Criminal Defense AttorneyDismissed - Charges of insurance fraud were brought when investigators found reason to believe that client's claim of injury was fraudulent. Client was seen kicking a soccer ball, and investigators concluded that the injury claim was false. By obtaining medical records and other administrative records, and by pointing out to the prosecutor that the alleged injury interferred with the client's ability to lift - not his ability to kick a ball - the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the case.
  • Criminal Appeals Defense AttorneyDismissed on Appeal - DUI case was dismissed after a successful appeal where the Utah Court of Appeals reversed the trial court's denial of the defense motion to suppress. Without the suppressed evidence, the prosecutor acknowledged that they did not have sufficient evidence to proceed to trial and the case was dismissed.
