Regardless of whether the criminal charge you face is considered a misdemeanor or felony, it can have negative consequences on your life. The penalties if convicted can be life-changing, and may include fines, jail or prison time, a criminal record, and more depending on the particular offense, your criminal history, and other factors. When facing criminal charges in Orange County it is never a good idea to take matters into your own hands. The criminal justice system in California is complex and confusing, one of the many reasons it is critical to work with a proven defense team.Your Legal Rights Must be Protected
Innocent people are arrested every day. Even if you did participate in unlawful activity, you have constitutional rights that must be protected. Your right to remain silent during questioning is one you should seriously consider, as police are relentless during interrogations and can even lie to get you to incriminate yourself. When evidence is obtained in an illegal manner it may be excluded from trial in some cases. Law enforcement and government agencies violate people's rights every day, so it is vital to know your rights and have a capable Orange County criminal defense attorney on your side.
From the most violent crimes including murder to drug crimes including possession, distributing, or trafficking our primary focus is criminal defense. While every person is presumed innocent until proven guilty, unfortunately this is not the way it often works. Many who are arrested and charged with a sex crime, embezzlement, domestic violence, robbery, or other offense find themselves under a cloud of suspicion - people tend to presume guilt until you are proven innocent. Even then, some may believe you "got away with it." There are various legal options that should be explored in every case, whether it may be possible to have charges dismissed or plead to a less serious offense to avoid the harshest punishment.
Depending on the charge there may be alternative options such as diversion programs for juveniles or "youthful" offenders, for those arrested for certain drug crimes, and more. Until you consult with a highly qualified defense lawyer, you don't know what legal options may be available to you. Some cases do go forward to trial, which makes it even more important to contact an attorney immediately so that work can begin on developing a solid, effective defense strategy.Contact The Justice Firm Today
