Felony Charges Can Be Resolved in Different Ways

People who are facing a felony charge are often shocked at how severe the penalties are for these crimes. One of the first things that you need to do when you are charged is to find out what options are possible for resolving the case. This can have a big impact on how you fare in the end.

Some felony charges might be handled through a pretrial resolution. These include plea bargains, diversion programs and entry into special court programs. In all of these cases, you will be bound by specific terms so that you can handle the matter. You might be labeled a felon for life, so make sure you consider this before you enter into one of these programs.

When you can’t resolve the matter before trial, you will have to go through the trial process. This means that you will present your case to a jury and the prosecution will do the same. From there, the jurors will decide if they can convict you beyond a reasonable doubt. This isn’t always possible, which means that you would be found not guilty.

We understand that you might have some questions about what to expect. We will help you learn about what’s coming up and what options you might have. This gives you the information that you need to make a decision about the direction of your case. You have to take the lead role on these cases because we can’t make the decisions for you. We will be here to support you and help you work toward your goals for the case.
