Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Euless Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you’re facing criminal charges, it’s not guaranteed that you’ll be convicted of a crime. With the help of a criminal defense attorney in Euless, you can fight against the repercussions of a conviction.

There are a variety of different reasons why you might get charged with a criminal offense. The charges may not be warranted because you were innocent for the crime in question. In other cases, it’s possible that there was an error in law enforcement policy or procedure. It could also be a situation where you made a mistake or didn’t know that what you were doing was illegal in the first place.

Regardless of why you were charged, it’s important to hire a Euless criminal defense lawyer and fight to get your charges dismissed because any type of criminal offense on your record can affect your future in a negative way. At The Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy, our attorneys are familiar with the criminal justice system and we’ll support you through the legal process every step of the way.

Types of Criminal Charges

There are two types of criminal charges which include misdemeanor and felony charges. Within the categories of misdemeanors and felonies, there are levels of severity, which carry various fines and sentence lengths.

The specific offenses for which one can be charged in the criminal system, including the penalties associated with each offense, include the following:

  • Class C misdemeanor: Up to a $500 fine
  • Class B misdemeanor: Up to 180 days in jail and up to a $2,000 fine
  • Class A misdemeanor: Up to one year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine
  • State jail felony: 180 days to two years in jail and up to a $10,000 fine
  • Third-degree felony: Two-to-ten years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine
  • Second-degree felony: Two-to-twenty years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine
  • First-degree felony: Five-to-ninety-nine years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine
  • Capital felony: The death penalty or life in prison without parole

Although it’s clear that with a more severe offense, there will be a higher penalty, even a Class C misdemeanor can remain on your record for life and hinder you from obtaining gainful employment in the future. That’s why it’s essential to hire a criminal defense attorney and try to get these charges dismissed.

Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

When building a defense for the court, the key thing to note is that you’ll only be convicted if you’re found guilty by a jury beyond a reasonable doubt. This means there needs to be clear proof that you committed the crime in question. Your criminal defense lawyer will work to put reasonable doubt in the jury’s mind to get your charges dismissed.
