Official Website Initial Arrest
The fact that you have been arrested does not necessarily mean that you have formal charges against you. The time period immediately after your arrest is generally the time when the district attorney is reviewing your case to decide what to charge you with if at all. You should have someone representing your interests- involved during this very critical time period.
You may be a candidate for a diversionary program that would allow you an ultimate dismissal of your case despite the fact that the district attorney can prove the case against you. This is typically used in cases involving felony possession of drugs.
The circumstances of your case may give rise to motions that may ultimately lead to the dismissal of your case even when it appears to you that it is hopeless. These are typically motions to Quash or Suppress the Evidence illegally obtained by law enforcement.
Avoid a Conviction
In the event that you do not qualify for pretrial intervention and the facts of your case do not support any motion beneficial to your case, there may be the possibility of avoiding a formal- conviction, so that you do not become a convicted criminal. This usually involves negotiating deferred adjudication probation.
Avoid Jail or Prison
There are ways that you may be able to avoid jail or prison time, despite the fact that the- sentencing guidelines may mandate prison in your case or the district attorney may be seeking prison time.
You are entitled to a jury trial on all new criminal charges and you should take full advantage of this right in the event that the case cannot be resolved to your satisfaction. The case must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt.
