Overview of Sex Crimes in Utah

Sex crimes fall under Utah Code Title 76, Chapter 5, Part 4, “Sexual Offenses.” Sex crimes can involve nonviolent and violent acts. They vary widely in their investigation, prosecution, and penalties. However, those involving violence and certain types of victims, such as children, people with disabilities, or the elderly, are considered the most serious. Furthermore, prior convictions can lead to harsher penalties.

Examples of sex crimes include: 

  • Rape: Non-consensual sexual intercourse through force, threat, or deception.
  • Sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault: Involving any non-consensual sexual act or contact.
  • Statutory rape: Sexual activity with an individual below the age of consent, regardless of whether consent was given.
  • Child molestation: Sexual contact or behavior with a minor.
  • Possession of child pornography: Owning or distributing materials depicting minors in sexual activities.
  • Sexual exploitation of a minor: Involving children in pornographic activities, whether for production or distribution.
  • Indecent exposure: Deliberately exposing one’s genitals in a public place to cause alarm or distress.
  • Solicitation of a minor: Engaging or attempting to engage a minor in sexual activities, often through communication channels such as the Internet.

The most severe sex crimes are charged as first-degree felonies, punishable by five years up to a life sentence. If the alleged offender caused a serious bodily injury, the penalties could involve fifteen years up to a life sentence. 

In cases of child pornography, penalties can range from three to twenty years in prison, with each image often treated as a separate count.
