I’ve been charged with a crime in Elbert County. How quickly should I contact an attorney?
At MBS Law, we recommend finding/hiring an attorney as soon as possible after you have been charged with an offense. There is no time limitation for doing so, but the sooner you secure expert legal representation, the better your chances of building a thorough and effective defense.
If I am facing criminal charges in Elbert County, what factors can influence the penalties?
The penalties you face will vary dramatically depending on the circumstances surrounding your offense. Some common factors include the severity of the crime itself, any previous crimes/convictions, any mandatory minimum sentences, and the purpose of the conviction (i.e. rehabilitation, punishment, deterrence).
An experienced criminal defense lawyer can help you understand the legal implications of your charges and help to determine the best possible course of action.
Can I be charged with domestic violence if the alleged victim doesn’t want to press charges?
The short answer is yes. Even if the victim recants their statement against you (or never had a statement to begin with), the prosecution can move forward with the charges. When the police are called in for a domestic violence dispute in Colorado, they are required to make an arrest if they find probable cause that a crime has occurred. The case is then prosecuted by the state as opposed to the victim. While the victim’s input can play a vital role in the outcome, they do not have the ability to call off the case; that power rests solely in the hands of the prosecution.
Is it possible to negotiate a plea deal for a DUI charge in Elbert County?
Can a conviction for a theft or property crime impact my employment prospects in Elbert County?
