Being charged with any kind of criminal offense is life-changing. You have to defend yourself and there is always risk of conviction. You may have to raise money to post bond so you can be free during the pendency of your case. If you are charged with a misdemeanor, you likely will face time in jail and a fine. A felony charge may result in you having to spend years in prison, pay a hefty fine, as well as restitution.
If you are a divorced or divorcing parent, the very fact of your arrest could have an impact on custody and visitation issues.
With so much at stake, you need to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
