Assisting Clients in York Defend Against Many Types of Criminal Charges

Being charged with a crime – no matter the type – is a serious issue and should never be taken lightly. If you are ultimately convicted for a criminal offense, you may be sentenced to pay monetary fines and serve jail time, among other consequences. Criminal convictions can also have serious ramifications for your personal life. First, you will have a conviction on your record, which can make it difficult to acquire decent housing, get a job, or go to school. If you are convicted of a sex offense, you may have to register as a lifetime offender on a state and/or national sex offender registry. 

Fortunately, though, if you or a person you love is facing criminal charges, legal help is available. The York criminal defense lawyers at The Maine Criminal Defense Group will meet with you to discuss the facts and circumstances of your criminal charge and explain your legal options. In some cases, that may mean pleading guilty and accepting a plea deal with the state or federal prosecutor. At other times, you may be more likely to obtain a better outcome at trial. In addition to helping you decide on the best legal option for your case, we can ensure that all of your legal rights remain safeguarded while your criminal case is pending. 

Misdemeanor and Felony Criminal Offenses

Misdemeanor offenses are generally less serious than felonies. Many misdemeanors are punishable by one year or less of incarceration, while most felonies are punishable by more than one year of jail time. The experienced York criminal defense attorneys at The Maine Criminal Defense Group represent individuals who have been accused of committing various misdemeanors and felonies, including the following:

  • Domestic violence (including assault, stalking, etc.)
  • Rape, sexual assault, and other sex crimes
  • Driving while intoxicated/driving under the influence/operating under the influence offenses
  • Drug possession and drug trafficking 
  • Federal crimes
  • Property crimes (including arson and burglary)
  • Theft offenses
  • White-collar crimes
  • Weapons crimes

If you or a person you love has been charged with committing one or more of these offenses, our legal team is ready to assist you with formulating your legal defense. 

Defending Against a Criminal Charge

If you are charged with committing a crime, and you have a strong legal defense to assert in court, the charge may end up being dropped. Common legal defenses to felony and misdemeanor crimes include constitutional violations, police entrapment, alibi, mistaken identity, lack of intent, and self-defense (or defense of others). An experienced York criminal defense attorney will let you know if one or more of these legal defenses may be applicable to the facts of your criminal case.
