“Criminal Law” is a wide-ranging term that encompasses many different criminal offenses. These can include white-collar crimes such as embezzlement, domestic violence, theft, DUI cases, and even murder. The common thread between these is that, should you be convicted of a criminal offense, you could be facing fines, jail time, the loss of your right to vote, and if the crime is serious enough, even the death penalty.
Should criminal charges be brought against you, you may be confused as to what your rights are. You’ll undoubtedly have questions about your defense, what’s expected of you, if you’re being treated fairly, and if your Constitutional rights are being respected.
