THE 2023 UNIFORM FINE SCHEUDULE IS SUPER HELPFUL AND EASY TO SEARCH WITH “CONTROL F.”
“It is the intent of the Uniform Fine Schedule to assist the sentencing judge in determining the appropriate fine to be imposed as a condition of the sentence in a particular case and to minimize disparity in sentencing for similar offenses and offenders. This schedule is not intended to supplant or to minimize a court’s authority to impose a just sentence. APPLICABILITY These guidelines apply to all Utah courts whenever a criminal fine may be imposed. In determining whether a fine is appropriate to impose as a condition of the sentence for a public offense, a judge should consider several factors, including aggravating and/or mitigating circumstances as set forth in Form 6 of the Sentencing and Release Guidelines, the cumulative effect of probation conditions, and the ability of the defendant to pay. The Uniform Fine Schedule should not be used in setting a financial condition of release. See Appendix J of the Code of Judicial Administration. In cases where a defendant may remit a fine without personally appearing before the court, the recommended fine amount may be increased by $50 if the defendant fails to appear or pay within fourteen days after receiving the citation. The recommended fine amount may be increased by an additional $75 if the defendant fails to appear or pay within forty days after receiving the citation. See the Utah Code of Judicial Administration Rule 4-701. For information on how to calculate the surcharge on delinquent enhancements, contact the Administrative Office of the Courts.”
