Statute

UT ST 78B-9-104(1)(g)

In Utah, a person convicted of specific offenses while subject to force, fraud or coercion can ask the court to vacate the conviction. Eligible offenses include possession of a controlled substance, prostitution and aiding prostitution, lewdness, criminal trespass, theft, and possession of a forged writing device.

Generally, people must seek to vacate convictions in Utah within one year of the conviction is imposed or appealed. For survivors, Utah law does not count the period of time they may have been prevented from seeking relief due to the trafficking.
