Criminal Defense in Fenton MO - starting at $450
Fenton MO criminal charges can cause you a really big headache, but only if you do not handle it correctly!!
How do you handle a crim charge in the right way? The best and easiest way is to hire a good Fenton MO criminal defense attorney!
Why is that the best thing to do? Because if you represent yourself, then you will very likely end up pleading guilty. And if you plead guilty, then you are setting yourself up for a potential jail sentence and large fine (misdemeanors can come with up to one full year in jail and a $1,000 fine).
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
But beyond the initial punishment that the judge might hand down, there are the long term consequences that you’d have to deal with as well. For instance, a guilty plea will result in a criminal conviction on your permanent record. This will make it incredibly difficult for you to get a decent job, rent a good apartment, or even secure governmental benefits.
Why? Because each of those entities will run a background checks on every applicant. And if you have marks on your record, then you will likely be screened out as a candidate!!
But we have a much better plan in mind!! All you need to do is give us a call! We will devise the best legal defense strategy for you, and get you the best possible outcome we can!
