Criminal Defense 101: From Allegations, to Charges, to Convictions

No matter what you are accused of, it is hard for anyone to come out unscathed once they are suspected of committing a crime. Even small criminal matters can adversely affect your life and future, as well as the lives and futures of those around you. Moreover, if you are convicted of a crime, it will go on your public record, thereby influencing nearly every aspect of your daily existence.

Having a criminal record affects:

  • Where you can live
  • Where you can work
  • Your ability to secure a loan
  • Your ability to secure custody
  • Your overall reputation and social standing

The stigma associated with committing a crime infects every aspect of a person’s life, be it personal, professional, or financial. And even if you are certain of your innocence, the court is not guaranteed to be on your side. While it is the stated role of the criminal justice system to presume innocence until someone is proven guilty, sadly, the reality is that preexisting biases and prejudices often interfere. Combat this reality with fierce legal advocacy from The Virga Law Firm, P.A.
