Appellate Representation

Juvenile Appellate Defense Program

Section 78B-22-803 of the Utah Code provides the Indigent Defense Commission, through its appellate division (“IADD”), responsibility to provide appellate representation for clients whose case originated in a county of the third through sixth class. That group of counties includes all counties except Washington County and all those on the Wasatch Front. On August 1st, the IADD will assume the responsibility for all appeals from delinquency cases initiated after that date.
