Even misdemeanors can have a profound impact on your life

When you are facing a misdemeanor charge, you might think that the result of the case won't affect your life once the fines and other sentencing points are completed. That isn't the case. While it is true that a misdemeanor won't have as big of an effect on your life as a felony, there can still be lasting effects that you will have to deal with.

Do you understand the basics of driving under the influence?

If you live in the United States, you probably know that driving under the influence is a crime. Not only that, you know that it can lead to a serious punishment.

What do drug schedules mean?

Facing a drug charge usually involves dealing with penalties that are based on the type of drug you allegedly had and the quantity of that drug you are said to have had. State laws play a big part in how severe of a penalty you are facing, but there is a federal law that can also have an impact on this because states are required to have state laws that comply with the federal drug schedules.

Can defendants appeal criminal convictions and sentences?

Being found guilty in a court of law is an experience that nobody looks forward to. If you are found guilty and aren't guilty, you might wonder if you can do anything about the conviction. The same is true about the sentence that you receive if you think that it isn't appropriate. The answer to whether you can do anything or not is possibly. You might be able to file an appeal in your case, but that hinges on various factors.

Defense decisions that you are going to have to make quickly

You have the right to defend yourself against criminal charges. When you are facing charges, your first decision about your defense is usually whether you are going to handle it on your own of whether you are going to hire a criminal defense attorney. This is a big decision that can have a huge impact on your future.
