I absolutely recommend voluntary counseling for clients dealing with criminal charges.  We can provide clients with tips for finding facilities that have good reputations and might help them financially. For example, if someone has received a second-time DWI, they might consider an AA program or something similar. If someone has been charged with domestic violence, they might consider taking a domestic abuse intervention course. Voluntarily getting involved in some type of program or counseling will look good on the defendant and enhance the negotiating powers of the defense attorneys.

Additional Information On Criminal Cases In Arkansas

It is very common for the police to harass college students and give them public intoxication tickets or minor in possession of alcohol tickets. Most of these college kids don’t have a blemish on their record, they’re going to be graduating in two or three years and entering the job market, and they really don’t need that type of charge on their record. There are many ways to prevent these types of charges from ending up on a student’s record, and we can make the process as stress-free as possible.

Parents are often shocked to learn that their child has been cited in criminal court for something like this, and many of them have no idea that the ramifications can be very negative. However, if a student receives one of these charges, it’s important that they tell their parents. If they don’t, then they will be in court on their own and at the judge’s mercy. Additionally, universities often employ in-house disciplinary actions that can have many ramifications. If a student fails to tell their parents, attorneys can mark the case through direct mail, which means the arrest letter will be sent to the address on the student’s file, which is going to be their parent’s address. This means that their parents will receive the letter before even being aware that anything has happened. Oftentimes, parents will panic and immediately start calling lawyers.
