Salt Lake City v. Allred

In Salt Lake City v. Allred, 20 Utah 2d 298, 437 P.2d 434, 436 (Utah 1968), the defendant argued that a prostitution ordinance was "in conflict with state laws and therefore invalid on the grounds that the ordinance attempted to make crimes of acts which were not crimes under the state laws." The Court rejected this argument, explaining that "the mere fact that an act denounced as a crime under the ordinance . . . is not denounced as a crime under the statute would not necessarily render the act under the ordinance inconsistent with the statute."
