CRIMINAL JUSTICE
PROCESS FAQs

 


 

When you get arrested, you get thrown into the complicated criminal justice system and being charged with a crime can be one of the most stressful situations you can be in. Let us help you through this process. 

SHOULD I HIRE AN ATTORNEY?

The fact that you are asking this question should tell you that the answer is YES. When being charged criminally, all people have an absolute constitutional right to the assistance of counsel even before an interrogation or questioning begins.

If you have been asked by law enforcement officers to provide a statement, you have a constitutional right to remain silent and to have a lawyer present during any questioning.
Law enforcement officers will often contact the suspects of a crime directly for questioning.

The sooner you hire our firm to fight for you, your chances of a better outcome will increase because Mr. Cary has years of experience in effectively navigating the court proceedings, and he takes pride in maintaining a good working relationship with the prosecuting attorney assigned to your case.

WHAT PENALTIES COULD I FACE IF I AM CONVICTED OF A CRIME?

The penalties you will face will depend on the type of crime you committed. A conviction for a misdemeanor crime could result in fines, probation, mandatory community service, and driver’s license suspension. You could also be sentenced to no more than one year in jail.

If you are convicted of a felony, you could be sentenced to at least one year in prison, possibly more. You will also face higher fines, more hours of community service, stricter probation such as supervised, and a mark on your permanent record.

Hiring an attorney who will fight to keep you out of jail is crucial when facing criminal charges. We pride ourselves in doing our best to encourage prosecuting attorneys and judges to consider other forms of punishment for those convicted of crimes such as probation, home confinement, and inpatient substance abuse programs to address any underlying substance abuse issues leading to the crimes being committed.

WILL MY CASE GO TO TRIAL?
Depending on the criminal charge against you, your case may be resolved before going to trial. We would need to properly review your case file, file proper paperwork to obtain certain evidence the State may have against you, and work directly with the prosecuting attorney, law enforcement officers and potential witnesses in your case. Our firm cannot make any guarantees to the outcome of your case, but we can guarantee that we will work diligently to resolve your case in the best way possible.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FELONY AND A MISDEMEANOR?

Misdemeanors are lower level crimes that can result in no more than one year in jail and possible fines. Common types of misdemeanor offenses include DUI and possession of marijuana.
Felonies are more serious criminal offenses that can result in no less than one year in state or federal prison. Cary Law Office is experienced in defending clients against a wide variety of felony crimes, such as auto theft, drug crimes, assault & battery, weapons crimes, and more.

HOW MUCH WILL AN ATTORNEY COST?
Our attorney fee will vary depending upon the circumstances of your case and the charge(s) brought against you. If you have been criminally charged, please call us to further discuss the details of your case and the retainer fee amount
WHAT DO I DO IF I'M ARRESTED?
This is an important question that needs to be answered. If you find yourself being arrested and/or charged with a crime, the first thing to do is to ask for an attorney and do not speak until one is present to represent you.
HOW LONG DOES A CRIMINAL CASE LAST?
The length of time any court action can take is unpredictable. At Cary Law Office, we strive to resolve your criminal court proceeding in a timely manner and with the best possible result for you. In most criminal proceedings, there are multiple hearings in regards to your case. We will work effectively to ensure that the steps we take moving forward will benefit your case and the outcome.
WILL I GO TO JAIL?

The chances of you going to jail or prison will depend on the criminal charges you are facing. Felony offenses do carry a higher possibility of being sentenced to jail or prison. An individual’s criminal background is considered during sentencing in a criminal proceeding.

The best way to avoid going to jail or prison is to hire an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney like Michael Cary to protect your rights and fight your criminal charges.
