Many times the police will make procedural errors that are a violation of your constitutional rights. If we find any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, we will seek a reduction in charges or case dismissal. Our firm can also pursue deferred adjudication if you meet the criteria for this program.
A criminal conviction can result in many different penalties depending on the specifics of the case, including probation, jail time, fines, victim restitution, driver’s license suspension, asset seizure, court-ordered counseling, alcohol or drug treatment and mandatory sex offender registration. Sentencing can be extremely harsh if the offense involved a minor, the use of a deadly weapon, or resulted in another person’s injury or death.
