You need an effective criminal defense attorney when you have been accused of a crime. Most law enforcement personnel are hard-working, honest public servants. However, at times these men and women can become so focused on their cause they cannot see the accused’s side of the story. That is why, if you have been accused of a crime, you need effective legal representation that can match the law enforcement officers’ understanding of the law and present your case to the court.
The consequences of an arrest and conviction can be severe. These may vary on your individual circumstances, but some of those possible sentences include:
- Jail time
- Expensive fines and court fees
- Permanent Criminal record which will limit you in nearly all employment fields
- Loss of licenses, including your driver’s license
- Loss of mobility and freedom in the form of probation
If you have been arrested, you are likely wondering what options you may have. Each case is unique so it is in your best interest to speak with a competent criminal defense attorney as early as possible. This is the only way for you to know the best way to handle your particular situation. Regardless of your guilt or innocence, you have a constitutional right to present a defense.
