7. Can the charges get dismissed?
Depending on the case, prosecutors may be willing to significantly lessen criminal charges or possibly dismiss cases in order to avoid trial.
8. Do I need an attorney?
It is always recommended that people charged with criminal offenses retain experienced legal counsel for three reasons:
- Attorneys can appear on a defendant’s behalf in court so the defendant does not have to miss work or school for court;
- Attorneys are experienced in which defenses work best in each type of case when pursuing a charge reduction or dismissal; and
- Prosecutors are much more likely to offer a favorable plea deal to defendants represented by counsel.
