Criminal Defense in St Charles County MO - starting at $450
When you are dealing with a St Charles County criminal charge, then you would be best served by retaining a good criminal defense attorney!! Why? Because most people end up pleading guilty to the charge when they represent themselves.
Why is that a bad thing to do? Because a guilty plea will go on your permanent record (for the rest of your life). So when you apply for a job in the future (or rent an apartment, or take out a student loan), a background check will be run, the potential employer (or landlord, or government agency) will see the conviction, and you will very likely be screened out as a candidate!Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
Would you rather avoid this outcome? Then you should give us a call right away! We will answer all your questions, thoroughly describe your options and rights, and devise the best defense strategy available.
This will sometimes result in a dismissal of the charges (especially if your rights were violated in any way), or often we can get the charge reduced to a lesser offense (so that nothing shows up on your record). And this is far better than pleading guilty (and dealing with all the negativity that comes from that decision)!!
