However, achieving a positive outcome is possible with the right guidance from experienced legal professionals. The Chickamauga criminal defense attorneys at Best And Brock are committed to providing experienced and ethical representation to those accused of crimes in Chickamauga and Walker County.
You must appear before a judge or magistrate if you're facing criminal charges. The process typically progresses as follows:
- Upon arrival at the court, the accused will be asked to take an oath and make a plea.
- After this, the judge will review all evidence and listen to any statements made by the accused or their attorney.
- The judge may ask questions of witnesses and the accused.
- In most cases, sentencing is deferred until after a trial has been held and a verdict has been reached.
- Depending on the type of charge being faced, the accused may have bail set at this time.
- Finally, additional hearings may be scheduled if necessary, and a jury trial requested by either side as part of the defense's strategy.
Facing criminal charges can be a stressful experience, but getting help from experienced professionals can make all the difference. Contact Best And Brock today if you’re looking for trustworthy representation from dedicated lawyers who understand local laws and procedures.
A Criminal Conviction Can Carry Serious Consequences
A criminal conviction's penalties, fines, and consequences can vary depending on the offense. Generally speaking, they may include:
- Jail time or imprisonment in state prison, depending on the severity of the crime
- Probation or parole, if applicable
- Restitution payments to any victims involved
- Court costs and related fees such as attorney’s fees and other expenses
- Fines may be imposed by either a judge or jury
- The requirement to perform community service hours or mandatory counseling sessions
- Loss of certain civil rights, such as voting rights or the right to own a firearm
Any kind of misdemeanor, such as simple assault or a first-time drunk driving (DUI) conviction, can carry serious consequences. Consequences could include jail time, probation, community service, and hefty fines. On top of this, a criminal conviction often carries long-term implications, such as difficulty finding employment or housing opportunities, both now and in the future. A criminal record can also affect one's ability to travel, own a firearm and obtain certain licenses and permits. A criminal conviction could make commonplace activities like purchasing a life insurance policy more complicated and expensive. In addition to these sanctions for criminal convictions, there may also be long-lasting negative social implications.
