Seeking Justice for ALL in UtahSM

Home | Services | Crimes | Treatment & Education | Victims | Other Resources

The Utah Justice Foundation has a mission to inform, to educate, and to seek Justice for ALL involved with the criminal justice system in Utah.

We seek to help criminal defendants receive fair and balanced Justice for their particular circumstances and case! We seek long-term solutions for each defendant, while being mindful of the interests of victims and society.

The criminal justice system tends to focus most on punishment and not enough on the CAUSE of the objectionable behavior. In addition, many other organizations simply direct defendants where THEY wish.

At the Utah Justice Foundation, we seek to use non-judgmental and forward-thinking approachs to allow each defendant to realize his or her true desires for a life in accord with societal norms! Then, together, we design a program for the defendant to achieve what he or she wants for his or her life in addition to paying the debts owed to the victim(s) and to society.

The objective is for all defendants (except those incarcerated for life) to exit the criminal justice system permanently - without repeating offences - thereby achieving long-term benefits for the defendants, for law enforcement, for the courts, for victims of crimes, for society, and for the citizens of Utah!

********     In criminal prosecutions the accused shall have the right to appear and defend in person and by counsel, to demand the nature and cause of the accusation against him, to have a copy thereof, to testify in his own behalf, to be confronted by the witnesses against him, to have compulsory process to compel the attendance of witnesses in his own behalf, to have a speedy public trial by an impartial jury of the county or district in which the offense is alleged to have been committed, and the right to appeal in all cases. In no instance shall any accused person, before final judgment, be compelled to advance money or fees to secure the rights herein guaranteed. The accused shall not be compelled to give evidence against himself; a wife shall not be compelled to testify against her husband, nor a husband against his wife, nor shall any person be twice put in jeopardy for the same offense.   *********
