It is important to have an experienced attorney on your side, fighting to protect your rights. Did you know? If you bail out, you may not be entitled to a public defender. Plus, you can be re-incarcerated if you appear before a judge without an attorney. The judge will assume that having paid bail, you have the resources to obtain an attorney. Showing up to court without an attorney can put you back in jail. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney who knows your rights and options! Do I Need a Criminal Defense Attorney? If you are charged with a criminal offense in Oklahoma that requires you to appear in court, you will need competent representation. If you represent yourself in court, you are presumed to understand criminal law, rules, and procedures in the criminal justice system. The prosecutor and judge are not your advocates in the courtroom.The prosecutor’s role is to convict the guilty. The judge facilitates an orderly courtroom. You need a criminal defense attorney who will provide you with relevant legal advice and protect your rights.
If the prosecutor proves your guilt to a judge or jury, you will be convicted of the crime you are accused of. You can be incarcerated and/or fined and ordered by the court to complete other terms and conditions. If you are convicted of a crime, the conviction can appear on the Internet or in background checks that can permanently hinder your employment prospects. However, if you have experienced legal representation at your side, it can make the difference between being convicted or being dismissed.Criminal Defense Areas
