Experienced Local Attorneys Protecting Your Rights

Find out as much as you can about your criminal case

| Sep 6, 2019 | Criminal Defense |

If you’ve been charged with a crime, you need to take careful steps moving forward as you explore your options. Even though your charges may be the same as someone else’s, your options may depend heavily on the circumstances surrounding your case.

One of the first things that you need to do when you know your charges is find out more about the potential penalties you are facing. When you first meet with your defense attorney, sit down and discuss the possibilities so that you can evaluate all of your choices. Your attorney won’t be able to guarantee any kind of specific outcome in your case — but he or she will likely understand what you can expect given the judge, your jurisdiction, any aggravating factors that might be involved in the case and any mitigating factors you might be able to present.

You also need to consider what you will do if you are offered a plea deal — or what kind of plea deal you would like your attorney to try to make for you with the prosecution. That’s often an important part of any defense strategy. Keep in mind, however, that any plea deal will have the same effect on your life as a conviction and will leave you with a criminal record — which is why some defendants won’t even consider a plea.
