Court cases, legal fees, and the possibility of serving time in jail is enough to make anyone panic and nearly throw in the towel. When your freedom is on the line throwing in the towel is one of the last thing one may want to consider. And likely they never will.
As written, man will give up all his earthly belongings for freedom, and rightfully so.
The right way to handle a criminal charge, is to talk with a criminal defense attorney that has years of experience dealing with criminal cases. This way, you will get a first hand look at the ins and outs of the criminal case litigation process, and insight into the best practices one can employ to ensure the best possible results after (and during) a court trial.
This holds more true if you are charged in a state like Texas or Florida, or even worse, charged Federally. Don’t be too proud to sit down and talking with a lawyer because your life may very well depend on it.
