Only $450 - Bel-Ridge MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
If you have ever been to a criminal docket in Bel-Ridge MO, then you probably saw the same thing as everyone else: a bunch of people waiting their turn to be called up to stand in front of the judge… by themselves. No attorney, no legal representation.
And when you represent yourself, the judge will undoubtedly tell you all about the benefits of simply pleading guilty: that you won’t do any jail time, that you can go free that evening, and that you won’t have to come back to court again.
For most folks, that sounds like a really good deal!! All they have to do is answer “Yes” when asked if they wish to plead guilty, and out the door they go, scot free!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
But that is not the whole story. There is far more that people need to know before they make such a decision. For instance, a guilty plea will allow the state of Missouri to put the charge on your permanent record as a criminal conviction. This will in turn mean that anyone running a background check on you will see it. As a result, you could easily miss out on a great job opportunity (or apartment, or business loan, or governmental benefit).
Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem!! And all you need to do is give us a call! Our team specializes in making sure that your rights are upheld. This can sometimes result in a dismissal of the charges (depending on the facts of your case), and sometimes we can get the charges reduced to a much lesser infraction (so that nothing shows up on your record). Either way, this is far better than simply pleading guilty!!
