Rights Of A Juvenile Offender In Utah


In Utah’s juvenile courts, most hearings are closed to the public to protect the juvenile’s identity. Juveniles also do not have a right to request a jury trial, nor can they post bail in order to leave detention.

A juvenile does have certain constitutionally protected rights in juvenile court, including:

  • The right to hire an attorney
  • The right to appear in court to defend themselves
  • The right against self incrimination
  • The right to know the state’s accusations against the juvenile
  • The right to have witnesses for your defense
  • The right to a speedy trial and time to prepare a defense
  • The right to an appeal
