FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CRIMINAL DEFENSE

Being charged with a crime can be terrifying if you don’t know what to expect. Here are answers to some questions clients frequently ask. If after reading this, you have any questions and concerns about your case, don’t hesitate to contact our Appleton WI Criminal Defense Attorneys for a free consultation.

 

I WAS NOT READ MY miranda RIGHTS when i was arrested. can MY CASE GET THROWN OUT?

No. Not being read your Miranda rights will affect any statement that you may have given, under certain circumstances, and could result in the suppression of your statement. It is not likely to result in a complete dismissal of your criminal case. Analysis of this type of issue is very fact-specific and requires an in-depth conversation with a criminal defense attorney.

I AM NOT being CHARGED WITH A FELONY. IF I AM CONVICTED OF A LESSER CRIME, WILL IT AFFECT MY RIGHT TO POSSESS A FIREARM?

Possibly. Federal statutes can implicate your ability to own or even possess a gun if the crime for which you are charged meets the definition of a violent crime of domestic abuse. So even though Wisconsin law only prohibits possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, federal law may prevent you from possessing a gun, depending on the facts of your case.

WILL criminal CHARGES AFFECT MY ELIGIBILITY FOR FEDERAL STUDENT LOANS?

Quite likely. If you are ultimately convicted of a drug crime involving a controlled substance, financial assistance can be denied. The length of time that you are ineligible depends on the type of offense for which you are convicted. There are many ways a criminal defense lawyer can prevent a conviction, even if you possessed a controlled substance.

I AM NOT SURE I CAN AFFORD A criminal defense ATTORNEY. ARE criminal LAWYERS EXPENSIVE?

It is not cheap to hire a qualified, experienced attorney, but more importantly, you should ask yourself what the cost of not getting a good criminal defense lawyer may be. While there is a presumption of innocence in criminal matters, once you get into a courtroom, the deck is stacked against you.

Prosecutors and judges are likely looking for a quick guilty plea and resolution to the case. That often is not in your best interest. The first offer may not be the best, there may be collateral consequences to a guilty plea, or you may be innocent.
