You have been arrested and are facing a criminal charge; you probably are uncertain as to where to turn for help. Anytime you are facing criminal charges, whether for drunk driving, theft, or assault you need a skilled criminal defense attorney. One of the most important things you can do is avoid answering any questions to law enforcement before you seek legal help. Oftentimes, police ask seemingly innocent questions; your answers can be used against you later.
Too many people take misdemeanor criminal charges lightly; they do not understand that while the first time may result in only fines, if they are charged later they could be facing more serious penalties including jail time. You should never plead no contest without consulting with a criminal defense attorney; no contest may seem innocuous but it is the equivalent of a guilty plea if not done properly. The Tavares, Florida law office of Keedy and Vasti, P.A. is here to help those who are arrested and facing criminal charges in Lake, Sumter, Marion, Orange, and Seminole County fight back against these charges. Contact us immediately upon being arrested for help.
