When you are being investigated for a criminal offense or have been charged with a crime, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, the possible repercussions of a conviction can be devastating and severe. Depending on your crime, you could face prison time, your name could be added to the offender registry, or you may find it difficult to gain employment or an apartment in the future. What I would like to stress to you is that everyone charged with a crime has a legal right to an attorney.
