Misdemeanor & Felony Charges
When a person is accused of a crime, he or she may face serious criminal penalties, such as license suspension, probation, court-ordered community service, substantial fines, and years of imprisonment. The severity of a criminal sentence depends on such matters as whether the crime is a misdemeanor or felony, whether the person is a first-time or repeat offender, or whether there are aggravating or mitigating circumstances.
At the law firm of Darden, Fowler & Creighton, L.L.P., we have years of experience defending clients against all types of criminal charges. Our criminal defense attorneys have worked for the County Attorney's office and the District Attorney's office, giving us insight into the tactics typically used by the prosecution. Depending on what is in a client's best interest given the circumstances, we can negotiate a plea bargain to reduce the charges or sentence or aggressively advocate on our client's behalf in trial. Our firm can assist in all types of misdemeanor and felony charges, including:
- Drug Possession
