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.

Southlake Criminal Defense Lawyer

Facing criminal charges is a terrifying prospect, and the fear can cause you to react poorly. Don’t sign a plea agreement without first speaking to a Southlake criminal defense attorney at The Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy.

When you’re facing criminal charges, especially for the first time, you might feel pressured into accepting the first plea offer submitted by the prosecutor. This typically isn’t a good idea. No matter what situation you’re in, there’s usually a way to at least have your charge reduced.

Choosing to fight against your charge means choosing to give yourself the best chance at a positive future. Criminal charges can negatively impact your employment, family life, finances, and reputation. Don’t go down without at least discussing your options with a Southlake criminal defense lawyer at our firm.

Penalties and Defenses Against Criminal Charges in Texas

All criminal cases are unique and your penalties will depend on your case. There are many things that can affect your penalties, such as your criminal history, the circumstances of the case, which type of crime you were charged with, and whether you have a lawyer to defend you.

Your Southlake criminal lawyer from our firm will do everything possible to get your charge reduced or dismissed.

Misdemeanor offenses commonly result in penalties ranging from fines to some jail time. Felony convictions can bring about fines, probation, community service, and jail or prison time.

For example, a second-degree felony can result in two to ten years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. An example of a second-degree felony is aggravated assault.

Defenses will also depend entirely upon your case. Here are a few example defenses:

  • Duress
  • Entrapment
  • Laboratory errors
  • Violated rights
  • Police errors
  • Mistaken identity
  • Self-defense
