Misdemeanor Charges Are No Joke
Misdemeanor charges can result in arrest and detainment and up to one year in jail. If not handled properly in a timely manner they can lead to a bench warrant that can result in an arrest during your next traffic stop, at a DUI checkpoint or in any other circumstances during which you come in to contact with a law enforcement officer. They may come looking for you at home or at work as well.
Your best defense against any criminal charge starts well before your court date. Resist the temptation to blow off a charge as “not serious” and let a Stillwater misdemeanor criminal defense attorney from the Wirth Law Office in Payne County help you find the best strategy to manage the consequences of the charge and find the path back to no longer having the threat of prosecution hanging over your head.
Police and prosecutors have the resources and the power to make your life difficult with misdemeanor charges. Don’t face the possibility of jail, fines and excessive court fees without the help of an expert advocate. There’s no reason to face the full resources of county prosecutors on your own.
