Assuming I'm understanding correctly with your relative ages, that you will turn 15 in October and your partner will turn 18 in November, the answer is yes. Right now, until you turn 15, consensual sexual activity between you and your partner would be considered unlawful adolescent sexual...Read more »
The plaintiff is the city/state that is prosecuting you. You would be the defendant. You can always represent yourself and contact the prosecutor to see if they will offer you a plea deal (a plea in abeyance is a type of plea deal).
There isn't enough information here. What is your question? You should contact an attorney directly for assistance. If you have been charged with a crime and cannot afford an attorney the court will appoint one for you.

I’ve spoken with multiple attorneys and they said that, in the state of Utah, it doesn’t matter. If you know the laws, because the courts in Utah believe that if they required intent, then everyone would just lie and say they didn’t know the laws.

There are some crimes such as DUI that are considered strict liability crimes and the state does not have to prove intent. I don't know what attorneys you're talking to, but I...Read more »

The short answer is: maybe. It depends on a several factors. First, when you say absconding, is that from probation or for failure to attend something pre-trial? If it's the former, it will depend in part on the language of his probation agreement. Second, if your fiance was the driver of the...Read more »
