Criminal charges can change the very course of your life. Even a simple arrest for criminal activity can cost you dearly. Think about this -- if you are arrested, there is a chance that you will have to miss work if you aren't given a bail amount right when you are arrested or if you don't have the funds to pay the bail. Losing your job means that your income is cut off.
Since you are facing criminal charges, you might find that it is difficult to find a job if an employer does a background check that includes arrest records. The future court hearings might also impact your ability to keep a job because you will have to appear at the court hearings.
We know that you might find it difficult to think about all of these consequences; however, they are very real when you are facing a criminal charge. We can help you learn about your options for fighting the charges that have been filed against you.
These options can include a plea deal or a jury trial. In both cases, there are specific considerations that must be factored into your decision. We can help you learn about all of the effects your possible choices might have.
