Types of Criminal Defense Charges

There are two categories of crimes: misdemeanors and felonies. Each carries a separate punishment, ranging from fines or community service to jail or prison time. Felonies can include offenses like homicide, attempted homicide, assault, and theft or damage involving high dollar amounts.

Misdemeanor crimes carry a lesser punishment and can include offenses like simple drug charges, low-value robbery, and some weapons charges. Misdemeanor crimes often carry fines, though they can still mean incarceration.

What to Expect in a Criminal Defense Case

Once you've hired an attorney to help with your charge, the first thing you can expect is an arraignment, where you will appear before a judge and be formally advised of the charges against you. At this time, your plea will be entered, and the judge will decide whether to release you pending trial or remand you to jail. After the arraignment, you will be required to attend a preliminary hearing, where the prosecution will attempt to convince the judge a crime has taken place. Afterward, either a settlement or a full trial should be expected.

Jacob Law Firm can help you through all of these steps. You will need the help of a good criminal lawyer, one with years of experience who is familiar with not only the law but with courtroom policies and procedures as well.
