Being charged with a crime is a serious legal matter. It is one of the most terrifying experiences in life.
Have You Been Charged?
Charge n. 1. A formal accusation of a crime as a preliminary step to prosecution.
Avoid Conviction at All Cost
Conviction n. 1. The act or process of judicially finding someone guilty of a crime;
the state of having been proven guilty.
Beware! The prosecutor will make their case forcefully and swiftly. If you don’t know your rights, they exploit you by convincing you that you have no chance; that you will be convicted of the crimes they’ve brought against you. They will assert that the consequences of fighting will be tremendously worse on you. They will offer you a plea bargain that you may not understand when you sign on the dotted line – taking full advantage of your ignorance of your constitutional rights and criminal procedure. The tactics that some prosecutors use may destroy your life, because you may spend time in jail, lose your job, your family or your home.

Pre-Trial Intervention & Diversion Programs
For some first time offenders and those who have minor offenses on their criminal records, many courts offer programs that literally intervene or divert away from the prosecution of your case. If you successfully complete one of these programs, your case may be dismissed and allow for expungement of the records from your criminal history.
The key question is whether you qualify. Qualification generally depends on the offense you are charged with and your criminal history. At The Silverbach Group we have experience and success in getting clients into these criminal defense programs. Give us a call today to find out if you qualify for these program.
