Experienced Defense for Your Santa Barbara Criminal Case
A conviction for committing a crime can result in severe penalties, including incarceration and heavy fines. Many sex-related crimes will also require sex offender registration, while offenses such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can result in license revocation. Another consequence when there is a guilty verdict in a misdemeanor or felony case is a criminal record that can limit your employment options and housing opportunities. If this is your third criminal conviction, you can even end up spending the rest of your life in prison. Just being arrested for a criminal offense can damage your reputation and strain relationships with family and friends.
