Provo Criminal Defense Lawyer - Utah County

Criminal cases in Provo, Utah can be handled through two different systems, depending on the level of the offense.

The Provo City Justice Court has jurisdiction over infractions, class C misdemeanors, and class C misdemeanors.  Prosecutions in the Provo City Justice Court are typically handled by the Provo City Prosecutor.  Although city prosecutors may handle cases up to the class A misdemeanor level, class A charges must be filed in the district court.

The Provo District Court (part of the Utah Fourth District) has general jurisdiction over all criminal charges, ranging from infractions to capital felonies.  Felony prosecutions and some misdemeanor prosecutions in the district court are handled by prosecutors from the Utah County Attorney's office.

If you are facing criminal prosecution in Provo or elsewhere in Utah, an experienced criminal defense attorney can make all the difference.  Stephen Howard has successfully defended thousands of criminal cases during his career.  His track record includes dismissals and not guilty verdicts on charges ranging from DUI to aggravated robbery.  His skills as a trial attorney and negotiator have secured misdemeanor resolutions for clients facing charges as serious as homicide and aggravated burglary.  With offices centrally located in Salt Lake City, Stephen Howard is pleased to serve clients throughout Utah.

  • 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.
  • 402 Reduction Lawyer Utah 2-Step Reduction - Client needed a two-step reduction to bring a prior conviction to the misdemeanor level. Collection of substantial evidence of reform and rehabilitation convinced a normally reluctant prosecutor to stipulate to the defense 402 reduction motion.
  • Violent Crimes Assalt Defense UtahProbation - Client charged with aggravated robbery based on allegations he entered a store with a gun and mask and demanded cash. Client confessed to police before hiring a defense attorney. Defense mitigation efforts resulted in a negotiated resolution that removed life in prison as a possibility, and secured a probation sentence from the court.
