Criminal Defense in Moline Acres MO - starting at $450
If you have received a criminal charge in Moline Acres MO, then there are only a few viable options available to you:
You could defend yourself (and not hire an attorney). But when people choose this route, they almost always end up pleading guilty to the charge. Why? Because they incorrectly believe that doing so will have no long term negative impact. But nothing could be further from the truth!!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
Aside from the potential jail sentence and fine that the judge could impose, a guilty plea will result in the state putting the charge on your permanent record. This will end up causing substantial issues when you apply for a job, rent an apartment, or go for governmental benefits. Why? Because each of those entities will run a background check on every applicant (and if they see a criminal conviction, then you will likely be screened out as a candidate).
But we have a much better solution in mind!! We want to examine all pertinent facts of your case and determine the best defense strategy available! This could result in a dismissal of the charges, or we could also end up getting the charges reduced to a lesser offense (so that nothing shows up on your record). Either way, this is a much more preferable outcome than simply pleading guilty!!
