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



COMMUNITY SERVICE & TREATMENT

What does it really mean to seek long-term solutions for each defendant, while being mindful of the interests of victims and society?

In the case of a defendant engaged in unacceptable (criminal) behavior, the Utah Justice Foundation seeks a solution that will solve the CAUSE of the criminal behavior. The reason? We have an objective for the defendant to exit the criminal justice system permanently!

Sounds simple, right? Yes it does sound simple, but in fact it is the much more difficult road to travel. It is far easier to put the offenders in jail and make them pay hefty fines, and then hope that they "learn their lesson."

The current criminal justice system tends to focus most on punishment because it's easier, less time consuming, and perceived to be less risky and expensive. The primary problem with this approach is the focus is not on the CAUSE of the criminal behavior.

Many other organizations simply direct defendants where THEY wish. We do not!

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 any debts owed to victim(s) and to society.

The Utah Justice Foundation finds that community service is the type of solution that can satisfy ALL - it can help the defendants atone and help them to pay the "debt" owed to victims and to society.

Again, the objective is for each and every defendant to exit the criminal justice system permanently - without repeating offences - thereby achieving long-term benefits for the defendant, for law enforcement, for the courts, and for society and the citizens of Utah!
