Handcuffed man against grey backgroundThis post is being written to conclude and recap my series on the handling of misdemeanor charges in Austin, Texas. I felt it was necessary to address this topic due to the fact that individuals make the mistake of thinking that such cases are not serious in nature. The fact of the matter, however, is that any criminal charge can carry serious consequences. The goal of my recent articles has been to stress the severity of these consequences as well as the need to contact an attorney if you have been charged. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.

I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:

There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, the question of whether one is facing jail time is common. Anyone who has been charged with a Class “A” or a Class “B” offense runs the risk of incarceration. Second, knowing what to expect from the process can assist you with knowing what questions to ask a prospective attorney. Third, even if the consequences of the current charges do not seem severe, a conviction can elevate the penalties one faces for future offenses. Finally, understanding the potential sentences of the charges you are facing is important to the decision making process.

One point I stressed in each of these articles is to contact an attorney as soon as possible if you have been arrested or otherwise charged. Counsel will take steps to protect your interests and ensure that you receive the best defense possible. I am an Austin criminal defense lawyer who devotes his practice solely to protecting the rights of the accused. If you are in need of assistance then contact us online or by telephone today.
