We understand how overwhelming and uncertain things can seem once you have been arrested and charged with a crime. There are of course many thoughts and questions that cross your mind as you realize you are being arrested and as the law enforcement officer restrains you in a pair of handcuffs.
You are sure to have many doubts about your profession, the consequences a charge or conviction can have on your family, and the prospects of a jail term, and so on.
At such a stressful time, our criminal defense legal counselors who can be found on USAttorneys.com which is a website that helps anyone find the legal talent they need and helps bridge the gap between the haves and have nots, will be right by your side and will take every possible step to help you get out of the predicament you are in.
Once you have been arrested and charged with a crime, irrespective of how severe or trivial the charge may be, we recommend that you find a legal representative ASAP. Remember that you can defend yourself and beat your charges.
However, failure to do so will mean that you will become convicted of your charges and that can have nasty consequences which will negatively affect all aspects of your life including your personal, professional, social life, etc.
No employer wants to hire a convicted criminal and even if they do, you will take everything they give you without much negotiating power on your side. Furthermore, there will be direct legal punishments that you will be subjected to as a result of the conviction. As part of your sentencing, these legal punishments can include, but is not limited to prison sentences, hefty fines in the order of thousands of dollars, probation, community service, and you get the picture.
What is a plea bargain and how does it work?
In most criminal cases, be it a DUI, an assault or battery charge, a traffic ticket, and so forth, our legal representatives could have you acquitted of your charges by disproving the prosecution’s claims and show that you are innocent. However, there may be some cases where the case against you is simply too strong. The prosecution may have too much dirt on you in the form of concrete and insurmountable evidence.
In such cases, you may think you have no hope, but many of our legal pros are former Iowa criminal prosecutors themselves. They may still have connections with current prosecutors (they can build rapport quickly) and will be able to strike a plea deal and work the system since they know how the game is played.
A plea bargain is basically an agreement where in exchange for pleading guilty, the prosecutor will drop the original charge and instead you will be convicted of a lesser charge which will attract a significantly reduced sentence.
