Only $450 - Pagedale MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
We have a very strong success rate in getting criminal charges reduced to some lesser infraction. This reduction occurs after we negotiate a deal with the local prosecutor. It is a deal that the prosecutor is usually willing to enter into, because it saves a tremendous amount of time and resources (of which the court has precious little).Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
So for instance, let’s say you have been charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. A typical deal that our firm could work out would be one in which the charge is reduced (or “amended”) down to a lesser infraction (like “littering”). Why would this be a beneficial outcome? Because littering does not show up on your permanent record, whereas drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor.
But if you were to plead guilty to the misdemeanor charge, then your record would be permanently marred. This can have a negative impact on your future prospects. How so? Here’s one example: when you apply for most jobs, employers will nowadays run criminal background checks on all potential employees. The conviction will show up (because you plead guilty to it), and this will likely result in you being screened out as a candidate.
