Criminal Defense in Northwoods MO - starting at $450
There are many different types of misdemeanors that you can be charged with in Northwoods MO. Some examples would be possession of marijuana (less than 35 grams), trespassing, disturbing the peace, or prostitution. These charges are classified as misdemeanors, and can come with potential jail sentences and large fines.
But it doesn’t have to go this way!! We can help you out! All you need to do is give us a call!! We will examine all the facts, determine the best defense strategy, and get you the best possible outcome. Sometimes this will involve a dismissal of the charge (especially if your rights were violated by the arresting officer), and other times it will result in a reduction of the charges (to a lesser offense).
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
The alternative is to represent yourself. But most people who choose not to retain a lawyer will end up pleading guilty to the charge. This is not a good option because a plea of guilty will result in the charge becoming a part of your permanent record. This will make things difficult when you go to a job interview, put in an application for an apartment, or try and secure governmental benefits (because each of these entities will run background checks, and likely screen you out as a candidate)!!
Instead of this, you should in touch with us right away!! We will start on your case immediately, and get you where you need to be!
