Why You Need a Criminal Defense Attorney
Few things in life are more stressful than facing criminal charges. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. By consulting with an experienced criminal defense attorney, you can get a solid understanding of your unique situation, including your rights and potential outcomes.
Individuals facing criminal charges often feel significantly better once they have met with an attorney to discuss their options. In some cases, charges can be reduced, or even dropped entirely. Contact Davis & Cannon at (307) 672-7491 for a free and confidential consultation about your case.
You Have Rights
As a criminal defendant, you have several constitutional rights working in your favor. If any of these rights were violated during your arrest, we may be able to get any associated evidence dismissed by the Court. Furthermore, depending on the offense and whether you have prior criminal history, there may be alternative sentencing options available to you.
At Davis & Cannon, LLP, we defend clients against all kinds of criminal charges. However, the most common cases we deal with include:
In Wyoming, as in the rest of the US, you are considered over the legal limit to drive if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08 percent or greater. Don’t make the mistake of assuming that a first-offense DUI is no big deal. Even first offenders face up to six months in jail, fines of up to $750, a 90-day license suspension, and the installation of an ignition interlock device (IID).
For second and subsequent offenses, fines increase and you can lose your license for up to three years. And if aggravating circumstances are present, such as an excessively-high BAC or having a child in the car, you may be facing felony charges and much harsher penalties.
Wyoming has tough drug laws. Depending on the type and quantity of drugs in question, and whether you are charged with simple possession or intent to distribute, you may be facing fines of up to $25,000 per charge and up to 20 years in prison.
Fortunately, Wyoming has alternative sentencing programs for non-violent drug offenders who likely need rehabilitation more than time behind bars. It is imperative to work with an attorney experienced in drug crimes if you are facing any type of drug charges.
Being convicted of a violent crime carries severe penalties, but none more serious than the damage to your reputation. If you have been charged with a violent crime, such as assault and battery, sexual assault, robbery, or homicide, it is absolutely essential to hire a defense attorney with experience in violent crimes. If convicted, you may find it difficult—if not impossible—to find housing, employment, and loans for decades. Not to mention, a violent crime conviction can affect any child custody arrangements you have with your child’s other parent. Do not attempt to fight these charges on your own.
