Criminal Charges and Penalties

The penalties in a criminal case are determined by several factors, including the type of crime that was committed and the defendant's past criminal history. Crimes against a child, violent crimes and offenses involving the use of a deadly weapon are considered extremely serious and will result in harsh consequences. The state will also push hard for a conviction in drunk driving cases, which can lead to jail time, the loss of your driving privileges and court-ordered alcohol or drug treatment.

The severity of offenses involving drugs is based on the type and quantity of drug that was found. A person found guilty of federal drug laws will generally be sentenced under mandatory minimum guidelines.

If you are facing criminal charges, you will want representation by a legal professional that has successfully defended clients in numerous criminal cases. When you have a seasoned lawyer by your side, the likelihood of a favorable conclusion to your case will be greatly increased. Our firm will conduct a thorough review of the charges against you, and make sure that your defense is properly prepared and vigorously executed.
