New Utah law guarantees counsel for criminal debt collection
While a state may have many statutes, court decisions, or court rules governing appointment of counsel for a particular subject area, a "Key Development" is a statute/decision/rule that prevails over the others (example: a state high court decision finding a categorical right to counsel in guardianships cases takes precedence over a statute saying appointment in guardianship cases is discretionary).
03/23/2017, Legislation, Incarceration for Fees/Fines (incomplete)
SB 71, enacted in 2017, requires that the collection and enforcement of criminal debt be treated as a contempt matter and requires counsel to be appointed for all such cases where the court is considering incarceration. This is codified as Utah Code Ann. § 78B-6-317(1), (3).
If "yes", the established right to counsel or discretionary appointment of counsel is limited in some way, including any of: the only authority is a lower/intermediate court decision or a city council, not a high court or state legislature; there has been a subsequent case that has cast doubt; a statute is ambiguous; or the right or discretionary appointment is not for all types of individuals or proceedings within that category.
