Being charged with a crime can be frightening, and the worries about what the future holds can be overwhelming. A criminal charge can carry major consequences that can affect you for the rest of your life, subjecting you to scrutiny from future employers, landlords, and third interest parties. It is important to have an attorney who can explain to you your legal rights as the accused, as well as your options going forward. Your attorney should be able to offer you a realistic expectation of the possible outcomes of your case, including whether you will likely be able to avoid having a criminal record, and whether there is the possibility of exposure to serving jail time.
