Felony charges are very serious matters that can end with you in prison. No matter what type of felony you are facing, you need to get started on a defense as quickly as possible. Putting this off could mean that you have to rush to throw a defense together at the last minute, which isn’t a good idea. We know that it is very tempting to just live life and pretend like you aren’t in a fight for your freedom. We are here to help you address the charges head-on.
One thing to remember is that while there is a good chance that you will face incarceration, it isn’t always 100-percent certain. Sometimes, felony cases are resolved through probation and related programs. This doesn’t take away the felon branding after the conviction, but it does allow you to rebuild your life without having to spend time in prison.
Whether you are on probation or heading to serve time behind bars, you need to make sure that you are using this time to turn your life around. You likely don’t want to spend the rest of your life involved in the criminal justice system so you must use your time wisely.
As you are thinking what different options mean for your case, think about where the option will have you in 10 days and in 10 years. This can make a big difference in what options you pursue, so take the time to vet out the options appropriately. Don’t make the mistake of trying to rush things when you can start planning from the moment you are facing charges.
