FELONIES AND MISDEMEANORS
Being charged with a crime is a serious situation and you should take immediate action by calling Wynn Law Group. This is the first step in resolving your case. No decision you make will be more important than the criminal defense lawyer you hire to handle your problems. The only thing protecting you and your rights is the lawyer you choose to fight for you. The lawyers at Wynn Law Group are experienced and tough enough to handle any problem that you face.
People arrested or charged with a crime are entitled to their constitutional rights. Some of these rights include but are not limited to, the right to remain silent and to have an attorney present. When a suspect is detained, law enforcement must advice them of these rights. The lawyers at Wynn Law Group always recommend that you remain silent and never speak to the police without having your lawyer present.
When a suspect does not have their lawyer present and decides to speak to the police they are often taken advantage of. Interrogation techniques may mislead the suspect in order to gain an admission and/or confession.
The best defense against such tactics is to hire an experienced lawyer like the ones at Wynn Law Group, who will make sure your rights are protected.
Crimes are classified as either misdemeanors or felonies. Misdemeanor DUI's have a maximum penalty of one year in the county jail. Many times felony convictions are served in the state prison system.
If you receive probation you can be required to submit to warrant-less search and seizure of your home, your person, your auto, and personal effects.
Examples of misdemeanors are: driving with a suspended license, driving without a license, possession of small amounts of marijuana, shoplifting, prostitution, simple assault and battery, etc.
Examples of felonies are: DUI accident with injury, hit and run accident with injury, domestic violence and drug possession, etc.
Some felonies are also classified as "wobblers". Crimes which fit in this category, can either be filed as a felony or misdemeanor depending on the defendant's criminal record and/or the gravity of the crime alleged.
Whether the charge is a misdemeanor or felony, the potential liability to your liberty, property and criminal record is substantial.
