This post is being written to conclude and recap my series on handling misdemeanor charges in Little Rock, Arkansas. I felt it was necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that misdemeanor convictions can cause serious consequences for one’s future. Such repercussions can include reduced future prospects, increased penalties for future offenses, and more. The goal of my recent articles has been to provide information which will help people to better understand their situation. It is also my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a criminal defense attorney. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance, then contact my office today to speak with a Little Rock lawyer.
I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- The potential consequences of a misdemeanor
- Defending against misdemeanor drug charges
- Defending against assault and battery charges
- Dealing with a trespassing charge
- Handling cases which involve both felonies and misdemeanors
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, many people do not realize that misdemeanor charges are, in fact, a “big deal” that carry serious consequences. Second, while drug charges can damage your future, there is always a possibility that law enforcement violated your rights. Third, it is not uncommon for someone to be arrested for assault and battery even though they acted in self-defense. Fourth, trespassing charges can most certainly lead to consequences. Finally, misdemeanor cases may very well be bundled with felony charges.
I cannot overemphasize the importance of contacting an attorney immediately if you or a family member have been charged with a crime. The sooner you contact counsel, the sooner your representative can begin building a case on your behalf. This can include visiting the scene of the incident, interviewing witnesses, and more.
