Only $450 - Franklin County MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
There are many things for which you can be charged criminally in Franklin County MO. For instance: marijuana possession; drug paraphernalia; stealing; and trespass. Many of these crimes are misdemeanors. And for whatever reason, many folks believe that a misdemeanor charge is “not that big of a deal”. They believe that such a charge will not have that much of an impact on their lives. And as a result, they do not hire an attorney to help them out (and end up pleading guilty).Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
But if you take this route, then you should be aware of a few things. First of all, if you plead guilty to a misdemeanor, it will become a part of your permanent record. That means it will stay with you forever (like luggage). And every time someone runs a background check on you, it will show up.
Why should you be concerned with that? Because when you apply for a job, or rent an apartment, or take out a loan (student or business), those entities typically run background checks. Which means they will see the criminal conviction. And you’ll likely be screened out as a candidate.
If you are okay with that, then by all means plead guilty! But if you want to make sure your future is a good one, then you should give us a call!! We will answer all your questions, describe your full range of options, and help to ensure that your record stays clean!
