Utah Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (UACDL) Executive Director and Past President Kent R. Hart slipped and fell into a waterfall while hiking in Hallingdal, Norway, on July 24.

“There are simply no words for such a tragedy,” said NACDL Executive Director Norman L. Reimer. “Through his tireless work for many years as a public defender to his steadfast commitment to advocating for a fairer and more humane criminal justice system, Kent always set an example for his peers to emulate. In addition to his splendid work on behalf of Utah’s criminal defense bar, Kent was a powerful and eloquent voice for reform on the national stage. On behalf of the nation’s criminal defense bar, Kent’s brothers and sisters in the important work to which he dedicated his career, I extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and colleagues.”

UACDL’s website offers a profile of Kent Hart at www.uacdl.org/about.htm#.
