St Louis Felony Criminal Defense
A felony charge in St Louis does not have to ruin your life forever. In many cases, a good attorney can either work out a deal with the prosecutor, or get the charges reduced. And in some situations, a lawyer can get the charge dropped altogether. But the last thing you want to do is try and get through the process by yourself. Most people are unaware of how the criminal justice system works (regardless of how many lawyer shows you have seen on television).
The state of Missouri subdivides felonies by way of a classification system. Class A Felonies are reserved for more serious crimes (such as 1st Degree Murder). Class B – D Felonies encompass different crimes (the less serious the crime, the lower the Class it is placed). And the punishment and/or sentence that can be handed out for a felony is much more serious than for that of a misdemeanor. For instance, a Class D Felony in St Louis can come with up to four (4) years of jail time and a $5,000 fine.
