Utah law states that “members of the public are not allowed to use the information to harass or threaten offenders or members of their families; and harassment, stalking, or threats against offenders or their families are prohibited and doing so may violate Utah criminal laws.” Utah Code Section 77-27-21.5(24)(b-c).
If you are on Utah’s Sex Offender Registry and someone is harassing you, call the police. If the police are unresponsive due to your status as a sex offender, call a qualified attorney that can help protect you from harassment.
