Have you or a friend recently been arrested or cited with criminal charges? Do you need help figuring out what to do next?
Many young defendants have the attitude of just trying to get it over with as soon as possible to put it behind them. This often means pleading guilty or being found guilty to charges without understanding the impacts it would have on their personal life and professional future. Don't think what you've been charged with isn't a big deal. Don't just “get it over with.” Take the time to learn and discover all of your options. Avoid convictions at all costs. Even if you are guilty of the alleged crime(s), there are often times ways to prevent these charges from becoming convictions.
You DO NOT want a criminal conviction on your record. A criminal conviction can affect your ability to obtain future employment. Most employers will run a criminal history check on prospective employees. Any criminal conviction will have a negative effect.
Every criminal case is different. The results one of your friends had for the same charges may not be the same in your case. Seek the opinion of an attorney that has handled thousands of cases in the Flagstaff area including hundreds of NAU students.
