Criminal Defense in Cool Valley MO - starting at $450
A criminal charge in Cool Valley MO is a very serious matter, and should only be handled by an attorney who has the experience and knowledge to help you!!
Unfortunately, many people will simply plead guilty to the charge. They do this because they believe (incorrectly) that a misdemeanor is a minor affair (and nothing to get worried about).
But nothing could be further from the truth!! If you are arrested and charged with Disturbing the Peace in Cool Valley MO, then you are going to get hit with a Class B Misdemeanor. This will allow the judge to sentence you to a jail term of up to six (6) months and a fine of $500!!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
And that’s not even the worst part (in the opinion of this law firm)! You will also have to deal with the fact that a guilty plea on this charge means it will stick with you for the rest of your life. The charge will be put on your permanent record as a criminal conviction. So anytime you go apply for a job (or rent an apartment, or take out a loan, or sign up for governmental benefits), the potential employer will run a background check (and you will be screened out as a candidate for the position).
But it doesn’t have to go down like this!! We can help you out! All you need to do is give us a call!
