Justice Court

Purpose:

Justice Courts are authorized by the Constitution of Utah, and are established by counties and municipalities. While operated by counties and municipalities, Justice Courts are a part of the independent judicial branch of government. Justice Courts have authority to deal with class B and C misdemeanors, violations of ordinances, small claims, and infractions committed within their territorial jurisdiction.

Mission:

The mission of the Utah Courts is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law and improve the quality of life in our community.
In accomplishing this mission, the Lehi Justice Court will apply the law in a fair and consistent manner, treating all individuals with courtesy and respect. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty (Coffin v. U.S., 156 U.S. 432 (1895)).

City Prosecutor

The Prosecutor’s Office is not part of the court staff. The Prosecutor’s Office is part of the executive branch of government, and is independent from the court. However, the Prosecutor’s Office does office in the same building as the court. If you need to contact the Prosecutor’s Office, you may call them at (801) 407-1185. If you have an appointment with the prosecutor, please inform the court clerks of your arrival and they will inform the prosecutor’s office. The court clerks cannot talk to you about matters for which you need to see the prosecutor.
