Todd Alan Peterson
Salcido Law Firm
About Todd Alan PetersonI am a Utah licensed attorney and an associate attorney at Salcido Law Firm PLLC.
I have been with Salcido Law Firm for several years and I have worked in many different areas of the law including: family law, criminal law, personal injury, and civil litigation. I have worked on large settlements for personal injury clients and I have represented many clients in court for the criminal charges they are facing.
My past experience includes working at the Salt Lake City Immigration Court where I prepared legal memos for the Honorable Judge William L. Nixon. Most cases I dealt with were for in-custody deportation matters that were brought against immigrants by the department of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. I speak fluent Spanish and I have worked with Hispanics in many different areas of the law including criminal and family law cases.
I am passionate about helping clients understand the legal system and deal with the fear and uncertainty that comes with facing the court.

Q. In Tooele, Utah, can they hold someone in jail for more than 72 hours; and discount 48 hours over a weekend, and no holding charge?
A: Under Utah Rules of Criminal Procedure Rule 7, individuals arrested without a warrant must have a probable cause determination made within 48 hours, not counting weekends. However, this determination can be made by a judge without actually having the defendant in front of him/her so in a lot of cases a probable cause statement is submitted to the judge and he/she rules on it as well as sets initial bail amounts. If an individual is picked up on a warrant then there is no 48 hour requirement. Under both scenarios charges are to be filed without delay, which does not have a set deadline and usually just means as soon as the prosecutor can file the charges. In most cases in Utah charges are filed within a week of an individual being arrested.
