Utah Firearms Charges and Penalties
In Utah, the right to bear arms doesn’t extend to everyone. While Utah’s gun laws are lenient, there are harsh penalties when certain people are caught with a gun. For example, convicted felons can face firearms charges in Utah if they’re carrying a weapon, and could face up to 15 years in prison. Weapons charges can also be brought against someone who has been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony domestic violence offense, a DUI while possessing a weapon, or a drug offense while carrying a weapon.
In Utah, firearms charges can be brought against a person who brings a weapon to school grounds, threatens someone with a weapon, or possesses a weapon with criminal intent. Weapons charges can also be filed against someone who discharges a weapon from a vehicle or near a highway, or carries a weapon while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These types of firearms charges in Utah can result in up to one year in jail and as much as $2,500 in fines for Class A misdemeanors, or up to six months in jail and $1,000 in fines for Class B misdemeanors.
