What Do Criminal Defense Lawyers Do?
After an arrest, criminal defense lawyers will typically review the facts and evidence related to your case, work with you on a legal strategy, represent you in court, negotiate with prosecutors, and provide advice and guidance throughout the process.
Your criminal defense lawyer's goal is to ensure that you receive fair treatment under the law. This can involve raising any constitutional issues regarding search or seizure, filing motions to suppress evidence or test results, negotiating plea bargains or alternative sentencing arrangements, defending against charges at trial, and pursuing appeals, if necessary.
A criminal defense attorney will also provide legal advice throughout the entire process, from initial arrest through sentencing or appeal (if necessary). They can help ensure that you understand your rights as well as any potential consequences of any decisions you might make. By working closely with a legal professional, you can secure the best possible outcome in your criminal case.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MISDEMEANOR AND A FELONY?
In Mississippi, a felony conviction comes with a fine of more than $1,000 and/or at least one year in jail. These are the minimum penalties for a felony but, depending on the charge your penalties could be much more. However, a misdemeanor conviction can lead to penalties of less than a year in the jail and a fine of less than $1,000.
