In accordance with House Bill 281, the Utah Attorney General’s office is now accepting first-degree felony cases for review that have been investigated, then screened, and declined for prosecution by a district or county attorney. You can find a list of what constitutes as a first-degree felony here.
If you are a victim in such a case, or the representative of a victim, you can refer your case to the Justice Division of the Utah AG’s office.
To refer a case, please follow the following instructions.
- Obtain a complete police report of your case. You can do this through a GRAMA (Government Records Access and Management Act) request to the police agency that investigated your case.
- Send a WRITTEN request with a brief summary of the facts of your case and/or your representative’s contact information to:
Utah Attorney General’s Office
5272 S. College Drive, Suite 200
Salt Lake City, UT 84123
Your request will be evaluated to determine whether your case meets the review criteria of the new law. If the criteria are met, you and/or your representative will be contacted for the next steps.
