Criminal Defense Law involves prosecution by the state or federal government of a person or business for an act that has been classified as a crime. Crimes are classified as “misdemeanors” (less serious offenses that are normally punishable by a fine like some traffic violations, petty theft, or possession of a small amount of marijuana) and “felonies” (more serious offenses that warrant imprisonment of one or more years, such as rape, grand theft, assault and battery, assault with a deadly weapon, or homicide/murder).
Due to the very serious nature of criminal defense law and because few people qualify for a court appointed attorney at public expense, it’s probably in your best interest to hire a criminal defense lawyer.
