Law Office of James B. Cronon, LLC
These are crimes other than felonies. Local ordinances, simple traffic violations, all are misdemeanors. These crimes are usually tried in the municipal/probate court of your county, or State Court, if your county has one. Punishments may include up to a year of jail, probation, fines up to $1000.00, and other requirements. However, with an attorney by your side, you may be able to obtain a better outcome.
When you are charged with a crime, you need to have an experienced attorney in your corner. We can examine the evidence, and determine what defenses you may have. We may be able to introduce motions that will suppress evidence to be presented against you.
In some cases, our discussions with the prosecution may result in lower fines, less community service, limited or no jail time, or even having the case dismissed altogether!
These crimes are those that are punishable by imprisonment for over a year. These are the more serious offenses, and you definitely do not want to face these charges without the assistance of an attorney. Many charges have statutory mandatory minimum sentences.
