Being charged with any crime can have serious repercussions for the accused, as convictions on misdemeanor or felony charges can lead to jail time, expensive court fines, and possibly even a criminal record. What can make matters worse is the fact that criminal convictions can have non-court-ordered social consequences that can have their own nasty and haunting effects; from losing one’s job and/or friends to sustaining irreparable damage to one’s reputation, the penalties associated with criminal convictions can last for years to come.
As a result, it is critical that anyone who is charged with a crime in Colorado – regardless of whether it’s a misdemeanor or felony crime and regardless of whether it’s charged at the state or federal level – should work with the skilled criminal defense lawyers at the Adams Law Firm.
