Getting in trouble with the law is not typically something that people tend to put on their lives’ bucket lists. Police cars driving around in our neighborhoods make us a little nervous. Squad car sirens screaming from behind us tend to make our hearts beat a little faster as we drive down the road. Nobody wants to be the one that the police are coming after next.

Toledo Criminal Law Attorney - Misdemeanor Offenses

Misdemeanor offenses. Some can be very minor heat-of-the-moment acts that seem like they should have little consequence. Others misdemeanors can be a bit more serious. But, no matter how insignificant they may seem, a misdemeanor offense is no laughing matter. Don’t treat it as such.

Common Misdemeanor Offenses

  • Petty theft
  • DUI
  • Driving without a license
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Parking in a handicapped space
  • Speeding
  • Running a stop sign
  • Parking in a fire lane
  • Trespassing
  • Assault or Battery
  • Public Fighting
  • Drug Charges

The above is just a short list of the numerous charges that fall within the scope of misdemeanor offenses. The scope of these charges range from minor crimes like speeding to serious, sometimes violent acts like Assault and Battery. But, no matter what your misdemeanor charges may be, the potential consequences that result could still have impact your life for years to come. Contacting a skilled attorney here in Northwest Ohio to represent you could help you get through your experience with the best possible outcome as a result.

Legal Aid For Your Misdemeanor Offense

One of the wisest moves you can make if you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor is to hire an attorney to represent you. Even minor misdemeanor charges can have serious long-term effects. Some of the consequences of a misdemeanor offense may include:

  • Hefty fines that lower-income offenders may not be able to pay
  • Inability to qualify for some potential jobs
  • Loss of, or disqualification of, child custody, professional licenses, student loans, government assistance programs

But, having an experienced attorney that is invested in your case may help you receive the best outcome for your circumstances, ensure that you receive a fair trial, and protect your all of your legal rights. Court hearings for misdemeanor offenses can easily be rushed due to a sheer quantity of cases. In some instances, there may even be a lack of solid evidence confirming your guilt.
