PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
Why? Because more often than not, people will simply plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge. They do this because they mistakenly believe that this kind of thing is “no big deal”. But nothing could be further from the truth!!
When you make the decision to plead guilty, you are allowing the state of Missouri to put the misdemeanor conviction on your permanent record! This will have a devastating impact on your future ability to get a good job, rent a decent apartment, or apply for governmental benefits. Why? Because each of these entities will run a criminal background check on you (and you will very likely be screened out as a candidate).
But we have a much better plan in mind!! We want to examine the facts of your case, determine the best legal defense strategy, and provide you with the best outcome possible. Sometimes this will involve a dismissal of the charges, and other times it could result in a reduction of the charges to a minor infraction (that does not show up on your record). Either way, it is far better than you simply pleading guilty!!
