I'm innocent, why would I need an attorney?
Unfortunately, innocent people are incarcerated for life terms and even sent to death all because a jury found them guilty. A lot of people are also wrongfully convicted because of circumstantial evidence and false confessions. Wrongful convictions are not unusual and you do not want to make the mistake of believing that innocence will protect you because in many cases, it won't. Hire a lawyer to ensure your constitutional rights are protected and that you won't say or do anything that may harm your case.
What can happen to me if I'm convicted?
A criminal conviction can have a host of consequences depending on your criminal history and the severity of the crime. Some of the penalties may include: driver's license suspension, hefty fines, victim restitution, community service, probation, incarceration and more.
How long can I be sentenced for a crime?
Under the Missouri Revised Statutes, the sentencing for a felony conviction ranges between not more than 4 years for a Class D felony to a term of not less than 10 years to 30 years, or life imprisonment for a Class A felony. For a misdemeanor, the term of imprisonment ranges from 15 days to one year.
