Arnold MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
ARE THERE CERTAIN BENEFITS TO HIRING A GOOD DEFENSE ATTORNEY?
1. The main goal of your attorney would be to determine if in fact your charges can be thrown out (as a result of some improper act by the prosecutor or arresting officer). And at the very least, a good lawyer will see about getting your charges reduced to a lesser infraction (so that nothing negative shows up on your record).
2. If this goal is accomplished, then you won’t have to worry about any negative consequences down the road (i.e. it won’t ruin your life).
3. And an attorney who cares about his/her clients won’t charge you an arm and a leg! Our fees for a simple misdemeanor start at $450.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO ME IF I DO PLEAD GUILTY TO THE CHARGE?
1. If you choose this route, a couple of things will happen. First, the charge will become a part of your permanent record as a criminal conviction.
2. If you have a conviction on your public record, then anyone can see it (including potential employers or landlords)
3. And if you plead guilty, you are facing potential jail time and/or high fines
ARE THERE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A MISDEMEANOR AND A FELONY?
1. Yes, there are big differences. Namely, the potential sentence you could facing. With a misdemeanor, the most jail you could do is one year. With a felony, you could be looking at many years.
2. This is because the state of Missouri has classified some crimes as more severe in kind and nature (and this would fall under the felony level offenses)
3. The entities that can issue a felony are at the county, state, and federal level. Individual municipalities can only issue misdemeanors.
