State v. Vessey
In State v. Vessey, 957 P.2d 1239 (Utah Ct. App. 1998), the court of appeals held that a motion for a new trial filed prior to the imposition of sentence was not timely.
The court of appeals explained that:
"The rule does not provide for timeliness of motions filed . . . prior to entry of judgment . . . Rather, rule 24 requires that a motion for new trial be filed within ten days after imposition of sentence." 957 P.2d at 1240.
