Trespassing Charges in Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently received a ticket for trespassing in Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park, MO? Was the ticket issued by a park ranger (or someone else working at the park who had the authority)? Were you in the park after hours (or in a restricted area of the park)? Are you thinking about just pleading guilty to the charge? If so, are you familiar with the consequences of that decision? Are you familiar with the benefits that you may receive by hiring an experienced attorney?
WE KEEP OUR FEES LOW SO THAT EVERYONE CAN GET LEGAL REPRESENTATION
When you are faced with criminal charges (like a Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park MO trespassing ticket), then you are far better off retaining an attorney to help you through the process. Because otherwise, you are going to end up dealing the judge, prosecutor, and court by yourself. And when this happens, it usually does not end up well (because most people do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge).
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISSOURI CRIMINAL DEFENSE MISDEMEANOR CHARGES
But pleading guilty allows the state to put the criminal conviction on your permanent record. With a conviction on your record, you will run into problems down the road getting a job (because the potential employer will very likely run a criminal background check); and you will have a difficult time renting an apartment; and you will in most cases lose your current governmental benefits (whether it is food stamps or public housing). In addition, this sort of charge is a Class B Misdemeanor (which comes with a potential sentence of up to six (6) months of jail and a $500 fine).
AT THE VERY LEAST, WE WANT TO GET THE CHARGES REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
We have a much better plan in mind to deal with this issue!! We want to examine your set of facts closely (to see if there are any viable defenses to assert on your behalf). But at the very least, we want to see about getting the charges reduced to some minor infraction (so that nothing shows up on your record at all).
Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park, MO has five (5), year-round campsites throughout the park. The term “shut-in” is used to describe the naturally occurring pools of water found within the river itself (as a result of rock formations causing the flow of water to collect). The park is comprised of over 8,600 acres of land, and is adjoined by the Taum Sauk Mountain State Park.
