Common Criminal Defense Questions
Will I go to jail?
If you are arrested for your alleged offense, then you will be booked
and placed in jail until your arraignment or until bail is posted. Some
minor misdemeanors may only result in a fine upon conviction, particularly
if you are granted probation. More serious crimes, however, will probably
result in a jail or prison sentence upon conviction.
What is the national sex offender registry?
Individuals who have been found guilty of certain sex crimes are legally
required to register as sex offenders for the rest of their lives. The
sex offender registry places each sex offender's photo, name, physical
information, address, and their sex crime conviction(s) on a public list
so anyone can look for sex offenders in the area where they live. Sex
offenders are also restricted from living near schools, parks, and other
areas where children regularly congregate.
What is the difference between state court and federal court?
State court handles all criminal cases that are not federal crimes. Federal
offenses include crimes such as kidnapping, sex trafficking, federal drug
trafficking, white collar crimes, fraud, and other serious crimes. Federal
court cases require the representation of a criminal lawyer who is experienced
in the local federal courts.
When should I hire a criminal defense attorney?
As soon as possible. Without a skilled and experienced criminal defense
lawyer on your side, your chances of successfully fighting your charges
are very slim. You will have no control over which attorney represents
you unless you hire your own. Do not hesitate to retain an experienced
criminal defense attorney of your choice if you have been arrested for
a crime of any kind.
