Chances are if you have been charged with a DUI in Utah County, you will be facing a charge in one of the many justice courts throughout the valley. The justice courts in Utah are the courts in which the lower level criminal charges are filed such as infractions, Class C misdemeanors, and Class B Misdemeanors.

If you are facing a third DUI or there are aggravating circumstances surrounding your charges, you may be in district court rather than justice court.
