The short answer is a person can request that a case be transferred when there is a conflict of interest. Generally in such cases, the case is handled by a neighboring justice court, maybe Heber City or Summit County and generally a different prosecutor office is brought in.
Based on your question I am a bit confused about the status of your case. If a conviction has been entered a party has 28 days to file an appeal. If the case has not been resolved with a plea or finding of guilt, it might still be appropriate to request that the case be transferred. I suggest you speak with an attorney about the specifics of your case.See question
The jail told me that they had 72 hours to charge me or not. So how can they have years? The charge was possession of marijuana over 16oz under 100 pounds and possession of paraphernalia
Sometimes the information you are given at the jail (or by the police or from friends is incorrect). That would have been the case if you were told that you must be charged within 72 hours or else the charge cannot be filed. That just isn't accurate.
The statue of limitations (or time limit which the prosecutor has to file a charge) for criminal offenses is at least one year and may be much longer depending on the offense. I suggest you consult with a local criminal defense attorney regarding questions about your case.See question

As Mr. Law has said, you need to hire a lawyer to fight this case. The consequences of this charge can be greater for you as a non-citizen than they might be for a citizen. And, from what you described, if you have done nothing wrong, you should fight the charge against you.See question
Today in a hearing for my friend, he was sentenced by a judge in a district court. He said some stuff I don't quite understand. When sentencing him, he said he was imposing the full year on my friend, but later said he was only getting 180 days ...
Without being there or seeing the order it would be difficult to know for sure but if he were being sentenced on a Class A misdemeanor, the maximum jail time is a year in jail. The judge could have imposed the full year, suspended half of it and ordered your friend to serve 180 days jail followed by a term of probation. If that is what he did, your friend would not serve more than the 180 days jail unless he violated the terms of probation. If he violated, your friend could be ordered to serve more jail - up to 180 days. (The 180 days that your friend is to serve could also be reduced by the jail for good behavior or good time so that the actual number of days served could be less than 180 days).See question
i was put on probation early 2015 and after a year was put on informal court probation. So i don't check in with anyone. I still owe about 900 in court fines. What if i stopped paying that when i left? Is there any chance they would just termin...
Generally speaking, while on informal probation you can leave the state so long as you notify the court of your new address.
As for leaving and not paying, that would be a really bad idea. It would not be worth running for $900. There is almost no chance that they would just forget about the money due and close the case. They will issue a warrant for you which may be a multi-state warrant meaning you could be arrested in Colorado. If you got picked up on an out of state warrant and were held as a fugitive my experience is that most everyone would gladly pay $900 to get out of that mess. You are much better off just paying the money and closing the case. If you need more time to pay, the court would likely give it to you if you contact them and let them know of the reason you can't pay as scheduled. And even if the warrant isn't multi-state, the unpaid fine will still get sent to collections and they will try to get the money out of you, with interest and collection fees by getting a judgment against you or capturing your tax returns.See question

Tell the judge that you can't afford your attorney and need to have them consider appointed the public defender to represent you. You will be asked about your income and if you qualify, the court can appoint a lawyer for you. If you don't qualify, you will have to either keep your current lawyer, hire another or represent yourself. If you have a job, you may not qualify for court-appointed counsel but maybe the judge would be willing to give you some time to save up some money to be able to pay counsel.See question

I was put on court unsupervised probation and I am wanting to move state
Typically the only requirement on court probation regarding moving would be that you notify the court of your new address. You should consult with a lawyer or contact the court to find out specifically what you were ordered to do in your case and be sure that you comply.See question
I was given an MIC ticket and took a course instead of going to court, should I answer yes or no.
Additional information is needed to answer your question. You have listed this in the speeding ticket practice area and also described it as MIC. If by MIC you mean consumption of alcohol by a minor (as it is called in Utah), that is a misdemeanor and depending on how the case was resolved you may have been "convicted of" that offense. If it was a speeding ticket, depending on the type, it may have been classified as an infraction and so it would not require you to answer yes. You can contact a lawyer directly or even check with the court to see what the level of offense was and find out what the disposition of the case was.See question
