Even if you were not “arrested” (placed in handcuffs and taken to jail) a summons with a misdemeanor charge can be just as serious an offense as one where you are arrested. If you were arrested, you have likely posted a bond to get out of jail. You need to know your options on how to proceed: when to investigate, when to hire an expert to determine if your case has a good defense based on specialized examination of evidence and whether you have a good case for trial.
Would a one-week jail sentence destroy your life?
Spending any time in jail is most people’s idea of a nightmare. Many misdemeanor cases require jail by law, such as second offense DUI convictions and bond violations. In other cases, the prosecutor will require jail as part of their plea offer because of the aggravating facts of the case or a person’s criminal history.
Get a misdemeanor criminal defense attorney on your side to protect you from the legal system
Misdemeanor cases have a potential to disrupt a person’s life. Misdemeanors are not small cases when a conviction could end your career or your intended future career. If you intend to be a police officer, some large departments will disqualify you if you have pleaded guilty to a “great deal” involving a deferred judgment which is eventually dismissed. Immigration issues are fraught with problems when a person pleads guilty or is found guilty of many misdemeanors that can mean deportation or disqualification from ever becoming a U.S. citizen. Misdemeanor charges are serious, and you should have a misdemeanor criminal defense attorney on your side who understands the issues that are important to you.
Not a U.S. Citizen? Immigration consequences of misdemeanor charges can be very bad
Federal immigration law controls naturalization, removal (deportation), and whether a non-U.S. citizen can reenter the United States after they are charged or convicted of most felonies and many misdemeanors. Know the consequences of such a case before making decisions that will affect the rest of your life. Mr. Solomon is a misdemeanor criminal defense attorney who will listen to you and help you.
