Only $450 - Overland MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
For whatever reason, there are a great many people who believe that a misdemeanor charge is “no big deal,” that it “won’t do any damage in the long run,” or that “it won’t cause any problems for me.” This idea likely comes from the fact that most judges do not impose any jail time when an individual pleads guilty to a misdemeanor. And if you plead guilty, but don’t have to do any time, then you’re getting off scot free, right??Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
Actually, the exact opposite would be true! When you plead guilty to a criminal offense, that allows the state to put it on your permanent record. And there it will stay (forever) as a conviction. This conviction will show up anytime a background check is run on you. So for instance, if you were to apply for a job, the employer would very likely run the background check, see that conviction (whether it is trespassing, peace disturbance, stealing, marijuana possession, drug paraphernalia, or assault), and you could easily be screened out as a candidate.
This same set of circumstances would apply to an apartment rental, a business loan, or student financial aid. But you don’t have to allow this charge to ruin the rest of your life!! It does not have to dictate what sort of future you may have!
All you need to do is give us a call! We will work hard to reduce the impact of the charge (either by getting the charges dismissed, working out a deal with the prosecutor, or getting the charges scrubbed after performing a period of probation). And we will get to work immediately!
