Criminal Accusations That May Lead to a Prison Sentence

You have never been in trouble before, but now you are accused of a serious crime—one that carries serious penalties including prison time. You have no idea what to do or who to turn to. How will you survive in prison? How will you support yourself and your family? How will you live with a record?

Remember, you are innocent until proven guilty in court. No matter what crime you are accused of, you deserve strong representation from an experienced attorney who can ensure that you get fair treatment. Take heart—our compassionate and skilled criminal attorneys may be able to help you.

  • Violent crimes – Violent crimes, such as domestic violence, rape, kidnapping, manslaughter, murder, or assault carry severe penalties. A person accused of a violent crime may be facing many years behind bars—maybe life. A criminal defense attorney may be able to help by disproving the accusations, getting the charges reduced, or getting the charges dropped completely.
  • Drug possession – Did the accused actually have drugs on them? What was the reason for the drugs? What quantity of drugs did the individual possess? These are questions that will make a big difference in the case and points that a solid attorney can build on. Just because a person is in possession of a drug does not mean he deserves to spend years behind bars.
  • White-collar crime – Sometimes good people commit white-collar crimes such as embezzlement, accounting fraud, insider trading, or tax evasion—either in a moment of weakness or because they don’t understand the law. Other times, they are falsely accused of these types of crimes. Whatever the reason, an experienced attorney can help fight these accusations.
  • Sexual offenses – Sexual offenses are frightening because convicted offenders may become targets of abuse in prison. In addition, sexual offenders must suffer the lifelong stigma that goes along with a sexual offense and register as a sexual offender. A knowledgeable attorney is key in defending against these types of charges.
