Criminal Defense in Shrewsbury MO - starting at $450
A criminal charge in Shrewsbury MO is not anything you should be handling by yourself! You have the right to self-representation, but most of the time people end up pleading guilty. And once you make that decision, there is no going back!!
For example, if you are charged with 1st Degree Trespassing, the state will hit you with a Class B Misdemeanor. This can come with up to six (6) months in jail and a $500 fine. So if you choose to plead guilty, the judge reserves the right sentence you in this manner.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
But even if the judge does not impose a jail sentence or fine, the guilty plea will wind up as a criminal conviction on your permanent record. This means that it will always show up on your permanent record. This can make things very difficult when you apply for job, rent an apartment, or take out a student and/or business loan.
Instead, why not let us help you out? We will examine all the facts of your case, and create a defense strategy that best suits your particular situation. Sometimes our efforts will result in a dismissal of the charges, and other times we can get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (so that nothing goes onto your record). This is far better than pleading guilty!!
