Criminal Lawyer


Criminal law is established by statute and exists to punish people who violate laws. Punishments vary with the severity of the offense, and range from a simple fine (such as a speeding ticket) to imprisonment or death. Criminal law is a state law, and each state has its own criminal code. Criminal law forbids a person to be punished based on status (for instance, it is possible an individual cannot be punished for being homeless).

If you have been convicted of a crime, have a warrant out for your arrest, or a charge has been filed, you may need to hire a criminal defense lawyer. An experienced criminal attorney or law firm may be able to help you with a plea bargain, reduce your fine, or possibly assist in avoiding jail time. Whether your case is a DUI-DWI, Felony, or Misdemeanor, you should consult with a criminal lawyer to assist you with the process. Some criminal lawyers offer free consultations.

If you have been accused or charged with an offense, please browse the Lawyer.com directory to connect with a criminal attorney near you.

Child pornography charges - a zero sum game

Federal and State Child Pornography Charges are sometimes fatal even when they don't have to be. One of the most difficult issues people face in our society is being accused of a crime by the Government. The accusers could be the federal government or state government and in some cases an administrative agency. What I want to discuss today is the plain fact that I have seen self inflicted tragedies consistently occurring with individuals who are being investigated for child pornography or a sex abuse case in recent years on the rise.
