Felon in Possession of Firearm Charges in Utah

Do you have Felon in Possession Charges in Utah

In Utah the legislature has made it clear that anyone that has been convicted of a felony is not to possess, purchase, transfer, use, or sell firearms. If a felon does possess a firearm or any of the other prohibited actions then they can be charged and convicted of Felon in Possession which is also a felony offense. While most felons are aware of their loss of gun rights it does happen that some individuals think they are allowed to legally go hunting or a similar act when in fact doing so could result in felon in possession charges.
