Litigators help people accused of serious drug crimes
In Arkansas, drug crimes are ranked in severity according to the recognized dangers of the controlled substances involved. The type of drug you were arrested for possessing, the amount of the drug, whether you have prior arrests and whether the drugs were for personal use or for sale are factors in determining your drug crime charge and possible sentence. We will counsel you about defenses and stand up for your rights with prosecutors.
Counselors advise defendants charged with sex offensesSex crimes include rape, statutory rape, sexual assault, indecent exposure and others. A conviction for a sex offense will almost always involve time behind bars. Additionally, convictions for felony sex offenses will require sex offender registration and possible community notification. Having a sex crimes record and being on the sex offender registry can follow you throughout your life, making it difficult to find work or housing. We will investigate the evidence to see if a dismissal or reduction of charges is possible and, if not, fight for your interests in court. Our attorneys frequently teach classes on criminal defense to other lawyers on getting sex crimes dismissed.
Criminal defense lawyers represent individuals in assault and battery cases
If you purposely cause someone to believe that physical injury is imminent, you can be charged with assault. If you intentionally physically harm another person, you can be charged with battery. Assault charges include aggravated assault, which is a Class D felony, and first through third degree assault, which are Class A, B and C misdemeanors respectively. Battery charges can range from first degree, a Class B felony, to third degree, a Class A misdemeanor. Convictions for any assault or battery charge can involve prison or jail time, fines and other penalties. We’ll review the facts of your case and develop an appropriate defense, such as proving the act was in self defense.
