Build a strong criminal defense to fight criminal accusations

Any charge leveled against you is serious, including anything from drug and drunk driving charges to more violent crimes, such as rape, and white collar crimes, such as embezzlement. Regardless of the type of criminal activity of which you are being accused, there is the potential for a serious impact on your life. This is why developing a strong criminal defense as soon as possible is important for accused individuals in Missouri.

The stress of dealing with a criminal charge can be devastating. This makes it important to realize the potential consequences that a criminal conviction can have on your life. For starters, a criminal conviction will show up on background checks performed by prospective employers, loan officers and even college admissions offices.

Obviously, a conviction could also result in you spending time behind bars, even if convicted of a misdemeanor. Therefore, you need to be aware of the possible sentences that could be handed down should you be convicted. By becoming aware of the worst-case scenario and other possible outcomes, you can make well-informed decisions about how to handle your defense.

Ultimately, by gaining some understanding of your situation and the law, you may be able to reduce some of your stress and make more sound decisions moving forward. Developing a criminal defense is a critical part of dealing with a criminal charge. Regardless of the severity of the charge, the prosecution has the burden of proof. They are required to prove that you committed the crime of which you are accused. If you have been charged with a crime, contact our Missouri law office to find out which legal options you may have at your disposal to fight the allegations that have been brought against you.
