Q: Do I even need a private criminal attorney ? Why not just use a public defender?
A: While a Public Defender may be available to help those who are very poor financially, that does not mean that a public defender is the best option for you. For example, one clear advantage of hiring a private criminal defense attorney, especially if you are facing a misdemeanor, is that a private attorney can often go to court on your behalf, thereby keeping you out of court. If you are represented by a public defender, you will have to appear at court at every single court date.
Moreover, many people elect to hire private criminal attorneys in order to get the level of customer service and personalized attention that a private attorney can provide.
Q: Will the court automatically provide me with a public defender?
A:It is true that Public Defenders are provided to those charged with serious crimes who absolutely cannot afford an attorney, but if the court finds that you meet their financial qualifications, you will be denied representation by a public defender and required to hire your own private attorney.
Q: This is my first time being charged with a crime. Does the court take that into consideration?
A:Yes. Part of the analysis the court will undergo when determining how severe punishment for a crime should be, is determining if the defendant has committed crimes in the past. Typically in Sacramento, individuals who have little or no prior criminal history will receive lighter punishments than those with extensive criminal backgrounds. Our experienced Sacramento criminal defense attorney knows how to emphasize the importance of the fact that his client has a clean criminal history, while minimizing the impact in the case of an extensive criminal record.
Q: Is it possible to get my charges completely dismissed?
A:The short answer is yes. We regularly have clients whose charges get dismissed prior to a jury trial, but this typically only occurs if the incriminating evidence is particularly weak. In most instances, if you are being charged with a crime, the only way you can expect a positive result is to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you. A skilled Sacramento criminal defense attorney will know how to achieve the best result possible for you through either a plea bargain, or by taking your case to trial.
Q: What is the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?
A: The terms felony and misdemeanor are classifications that refer to the severity of the crime. Essentially a felony is a crime that is punishable by over one year in jail, or state prison. A misdemeanor is a crime that is punishable by one year in jail or less. A third classification is an infraction. Infractions are minor offenses like traffic violations and these are not punishable by jail.
Q: Does being convicted of a felony always result in time in jail?
A: NO. While a felony always carries the risk of being sentenced to jail time, being convicted of a felony does not always result in jail. This is especially true if by the term jail you are referring to time behind bars in a jail cell.
There are many factors that play into the sentence that will accompany the conviction of a felony offense. One of the primary factors will be the severity of the crime one is convicted of. Another factor will be whether or not this is a first offense or whether there is a history of criminal convictions. An experienced Sacramento criminal defense attorney will be able to resolve a felony case with the least punishment possible. Where jail is required, there are often many jail alternatives which a skilled Sacramento criminal defense attorney may be able to arrange as a substitute for spending time behind bars. There are some felony convictions in which the sentence involves no jail time, there are other times when the sentence does require jail time, but this can be satisfied through work release, or electronic monitoring, and there are other times, when jail may be unavoidable.
