A misdemeanor may appear to be a minor offense that will likely lead to only a fine or community service, but you need to keep in mind that misdemeanor charges that are ignored can lead to unpleasant ramifications. Misdemeanors attract imprisonment, fines, suspension of driver’s license, and limitations in educational opportunities available.
An experienced criminal defense attorney can be the difference between punishment and a criminal record against your name as opposed to freedom and the charges being dropped. Skilled lawyers at the Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez Jr. know how the prosecution approaches these cases, and if the judge is not convinced beyond reasonable doubt that there is indeed a case against the defendant, then the charges against the accused may be dropped.
Common misdemeanor charges include driving while intoxicated, being intoxicated in public, shoplifting, and reckless driving.
A good lawyer will try his best to ensure that a repeat misdemeanor by the client does not get treated as a felony. A felony charge attracts stiffer punishment.
