Screening Team

The Utah County Attorney's Office, on average, receives more than 3500 felony cases per year. To efficiently handle so many cases before ten district court judges, in 2007 we created a screening or intake team. Four prosecutors and four legal assistants review or screen most of those 3500 cases (excluding cases handled by our Special Victim's Unit Team) and file charges when appropriate. The Screening Team also handles all asset forfeitures and all hearings, and spends a great deal of time working with police officers as they conduct their investigations.
