Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. If I am a teacher and I get charged with criminal trespass, can I get fired?
A: This is both an employment and criminal law question, but you should deal with the criminal aspect first. Talk to a lawyer about defending against the charges. The employment question will likely depend upon your employer's policies.
Q. Is there anyone who can help with secondhand smoke coming into our private home from a duplex next door?
A: Under Utah law, environmental tobacco smoke is a statutorily defined nuisance. See Utah Code Ann. 78B-6-1105. While this statute is expressly directed to condominium units and apartments, it should also apply to a duplex that you are renting. You may need to have a lawyer assist you in evaluating whether it is worth pursuing an action. See also Utah Code Ann. 78B-6-1106.
