In California, felony crimes are serious and can have life-altering consequences. If convicted of one, you could face extended jail or prison time (up to life in prison), strict post-imprisonment restrictions, the death penalty, harsh monetary fines, and a permanent criminal record. It could also have additional and often unexpected repercussions, such as damage to one’s reputation, inability to find suitable housing/gainful employment, and potential deportation by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services if you aren’t a U.S. Citizen. With this in mind, if you have been charged with, arrested for, or are under investigation for a felony, it is critical to work with an experienced attorney who understands the complexities and nuances associated with these complex types of offenses. Not every criminal defense lawyer is qualified to represent those facing felony charges. In fact, having an experienced felony defense lawyer by your side can possibly make the difference between jail time and your freedom. It can also ensure that your constitutional rights are protected and, provide you with the best chances of having your charges either reduced or, completely dismissed.
Regardless of whether you are guilty or innocent, anything you say and do can be used against you by investigators and the prosecution. That is why you should immediately assert your right to remain silent and, have a San Diego felony crime defense lawyer present before any interrogation by the prosecution or criminal investigators can continue. Since there may be strong defenses to raise on your behalf, avoiding incriminating statements or behavior can more favorably affect the outcome of your case. Also, the prosecution has ample resources to build a strong case against you, which is why you should take action now and fight back with a seasoned felony defense lawyer by your side.
