Criminal Defense in Kinloch MO - starting at $450
What’s the best thing you can do for yourself when faced with a Kinloch MO criminal charge? Hire an experienced defense attorney!!
Why? Because if you end up representing yourself, then you will very likely do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge.
Why is pleading guilty bad? Because of the potential sentence that could be handed down by the judge. For instance, let’s say you are charged with 1st Degree Trespassing in Kinloch MO. This is a Class B Misdemeanor. If you plead guilty to this charge, the judge could potentially smack you with up to six (6) months in jail, and a $500 fine.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
In addition, a guilty plea will end up on your permanent record. Which means that anytime someone runs a criminal background check on you it will show up for all to see. This can have a devastating impact on your chances for a good job (or an apartment, a student loan, or government benefits).
But we have something else in mind for your case!! We will thoroughly review all the facts of your case, create the best defense strategy available, and put you in the best position possible thereafter! Sometimes this will involve a dismissal of the charges. Other times it will result in a reduction of the charges. Either way, this is a far better outcome than you simply pleading guilty!!
