Assault On Police Officer
Assault is defined under Utah Code § 76-5-102(1)as an attempt, with unlawful force or violence, to do bodily injury to another person, or, an act, committed with unlawful force or violence, that causes bodily injury to another or creates a substantial risk of bodily injury to another person. When the alleged victim of an assault is a peace officer or a military service member in uniform, the alleged offender can face enhanced criminal charges.
When a person is accused of committing assault on a peace officer or a military service member, prosecutors will aggressively pursue maximum punishments. Convictions carry steep consequences that may involve mandatory minimum jail sentences for alleged offenders who have been previously convicted of this crime.
