Felony Charges Require An Experienced Advocate
Few things are as potentially life changing as a felony criminal charge. While a misdemeanor charge can be serious, a felony criminal charge normally entails much more significant infractions that can include more severe penalties. You should be certain that the criminal defense attorney that you hire to handle your defense is familiar with these types of charges. It is especially important that your lawyer is familiar with the prosecutors you are facing and can effectively negotiate with them on your behalf.
At Van Breemen Law in Sacramento, you can get the help you need from Doug Van Breemen. He has over two decades of criminal law experience, with most of his time spent as a criminal prosecutor. He knows the criminal justice system inside and out and is familiar with the prosecutors in California state and felony courts. He can use this knowledge to help minimize the potential penalties you might be facing by attempting to get your charges negotiated down or dismissed.
Your Freedom And Rights Require An Unwavering Defense
Unlike a misdemeanor charge, a felony charge will always carry the risk of at least a year in jail and up to $10,000 in fines that can be levied against you. Felony charges are also commonly requested on background checks and can foreclose opportunities for you such as desirable employment, housing opportunities and even some government benefits. Additionally, in California, there is the Three Strikes law, which imposes severe mandatory penalties for a third felony offense.
Some of the most common felony charges include:
- Assault with a firearm
- First degree burglary
- Grand theft
- Murder and attempted murder
- Vehicular manslaughter
Many crimes can be both misdemeanor and felony charges, depending on the severity of the occurrence and the degree of the charge. Doug can help you because he has worked on the other side for over 20 years and he knows how to negotiate with a prosecutor. Many charges can be pleaded down from a felony to a misdemeanor, and, when this happens, you can avoid a lot of the other consequences from a felony conviction, especially if you are worried about a Third Strike offense.
