Any charge, whether it is a federal or state misdemeanor or felony, is worthy of consulting with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Individuals convicted of a crime may be facing significant penalties including jail time, fines, probation, community service and other consequences. Having a criminal record that will continue to follow you for many years can make it challenging to obtain employment or to rent a living space since your criminal history may show up on a background check.
