Your defense can take many forms

If you are facing criminal charges in California, the future might feel very uncertain. No matter the nature of the alleged offense, the prospect of a criminal investigation, going through a trial and possibly even facing conviction can be extremely upsetting. Furthermore, it can put pressure on your family and even affect your employment status. Ideally, you want to get it all out of the way as soon as possible. However, if you are too hasty, you could make costly mistakes that could affect your chances in court.

Some federal crimes carry capital punishment

Criminal penalties in California can vary dramatically depending upon the crime in question, not to mention the history of the alleged perpetrator. For example, a person with no previous convictions may receive a lighter sentence or have a better chance of negotiating a plea deal than someone with a history of prior offenses.

What is embezzlement?

For residents of California, the idea of being charged with a serious criminal offense is a worrying one. Conviction could not only lead to prison sentences and hefty fines, but could also cost you your job and even impact where you are allowed to reside. Unfortunately, there are far too many ways to get into trouble, particularly if you work in a position of power. One mistake could result in an investigation into a possible white collar scheme.

California discusses marijuana legalization

Drug charges can turn your life upside-down. No matter which substance is involved, or how serious the charges you face are deemed to be, you can be sure if convicted the consequences are not trivial. Employers may be reluctant to allow you to continue working for them, friends and family may be unsure how to react and you could even face the loss of any professional licenses, your driver's license and anything similar.
