Only $450 - Cool Valley MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
There are a number of long term consequences that can come your way in the future if you plead guilty to a Cool Valley MO criminal charge now. Most of these consequences are never pointed out to you beforehand (because the judge and/or prosecutor is under no obligation to inform you of them). And if you choose to represent yourself (without the aid of a trained attorney), then you more than likely going to ensure that these negative consequences comes into play.
Why? Because most people who choose not to hire a St Louis criminal defense attorney will end up pleading guilty to the charge.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
Why is this bad? Because a plea of guilt will allow the state of Missouri to put the charge on your permanent record. This means that anytime a person or entity runs a criminal background check on you, it will show up for all to see. So if you are applying for a job, and the employer runs the background check, you will likely be screened out as a candidate. The same situation would apply to an apartment that you want to rent, or a governmental benefit you wish to take out.
But it doesn’t have to go down like this!! There is a much better way of dealing with the criminal charge. We will closely examine all the pertinent facts of your case, determine the best defense strategy, and make sure that your rights and options are preserved. Often times our efforts will result in a reduction of the charges (down to something minor, like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record), and sometimes we can get the charges thrown out altogether (especially if your rights were in some way violated). Either way, it is far better than simply pleading guilty!!
