Only $450 - St John MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense


Receiving a criminal citation in St John MO is not the end of the world!!  A misdemeanor charge does not have to negatively affect the rest of your life!  You have several options, you have many rights.  But the last thing you want to do is plead guilty.  That decision would leave a long term impact on your future prospects (and leave you wishing that you had gone a different route)!


Most misdemeanors in St John MO are going to be a Class A.  This is the highest level, and therefore comes with the toughest penalties.  For example, a Class A Misdemeanor can come with up to one (1) year of jail time a fine of $1,000. 

But believe it or not, the potential sentence that the court can hand down is not the worst part.  If you were to plead guilty to such a charge, it would become a part of your permanent record.  This means that anyone in the future who runs a criminal background check on you will see it.  This would include employers, landlords, government agencies, student loan companies, and banks (if you are looking to take out a business loan). 

But things do not have to turn out this way!  We offer a much better alternative!  For instance, our team is very often successful in getting the charges reduced to a lesser offense (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record at all).  This is a far better outcome than pleading guilty!  All you need to do is give us a call, and we can get started.
