Affton MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
- There are many, but perhaps the most profound benefit of having a lawyer help you out is that he/she can try and minimize the negative impact that the charge will have on you. For instance, a good Affton MO criminal defense attorney can very often get the charges reduced to a much lesser infraction (one that will not show up on your permanent record)
- If the charges are reduced (or dismissed), then you will not have to worry about any long term consequences that might occur down the road
- And an affordable attorney can perform all of these services at a reasonable price: we only charge $450 for most Affton MO misdemeanors
- Pleading guilty is an option, but you are putting yourself at risk of whatever judgment the court decides to impose (like for instance jail time and a high fine)
- A plea of guilty will allow the state of Missouri to put the conviction on your permanent record (for anyone to see who wishes to run a criminal background check on you)
- This will have a tremendous impact on your chances of getting a decent job, a good apartment, or securing a student loan
- One of the biggest differences is at the governmental level: only the state and/or county can charge you with a felony; individual municipalities (such as Richmond Heights or Bridgeton) can only issue misdemeanors
- A misdemeanor level offense is described as a crime that is less severe than a felony level offense
- Felonies will have jail terms and fines that are substantially higher than misdemeanors
