The Consequences Of Criminal Charges

Criminal charges often grow in severity with repeat offenses of a crime. It is wise to speak with a criminal defense lawyer even if the charges seem relatively minor so that subsequent charges are not as serious. Typical charges we handle include:

  • DUI: There is much at stake here, including loss of license, fines and jail time.
  • Shoplifting: The implications of this can be a red flag for retail employment.
  • Underage drinking: One youthful indiscretion can affect schooling, scholarships and other important matters.
  • Drug crimes: Even a possession of marijuana charge can lead to fines and jail time in certain circumstances.
  • Drunk and disorderly: This charge is common in college towns, but schools still take a dim view of it.
