Criminal Defense FAQ

  • What determines the severity of penalties if convicted?

    The consequences you might face if convicted in a criminal case can be influenced by several factors. These include the nature and severity of the crime, your previous criminal history, the presence of aggravating factors such as the use of a weapon or causing bodily harm, and the specific sentencing guidelines and laws of the jurisdiction where the case is being tried.

  • What happens if I violate a restraining order? 

    If you violate a restraining order, consequences can be severe. While the specific penalties vary, they often include additional legal repercussions that could further complicate your situation. It's crucial to respect the terms of any restraining order to avoid these potential penalties.

  • What is a plea bargain? 

    Plea bargaining plays a significant role in criminal cases. It's a negotiation process where defendants and prosecutors reach a mutually agreeable resolution to a criminal case without going to trial. This often involves the defendant agreeing to plead guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for a more lenient sentence.
