OUR MISSION STATEMENT

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.



We use non-judgmental and forward-thinking approaches to allow each defendant to realize his or her true personal desires for a life in accord with societal norms!

We seek to work together to design a program for the defendant to achieve what he or she wants for his or her life in addition to paying all debts owed to victim(s) and to society.

We seek to be mindful of the victims of crimes - past, present and future - as we pursue our primary objective for all defendants (except those incarcerated for life) to exit the criminal justice system permanently - thereby resulting in long-term benefits for ALL - for the defendants, for law enforcement, for the courts, for the victims, for society, and for the citizens of the state of Utah!

We fully expect that the Mission of the Utah Justice Foundation will grow, and we shall always be mindful of the interests of ALL, for it is ALL who deserve Justice in their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness!
