"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized"
- Amendment IV, United States Constitution
The consequences of facing charges can be severe. If you are accused of a felony or a misdemeanor, you may face a sentence of year or more in jail, onerous fines, probation, hours of community service, suspension of your license, mandated rehabilitation and trouble finding a job - especially if your license is affected.
Even at early stages, such as the arraignment, strategic decisions must be made which will ultimately effect the strength of your defense, and the prosecution’s case.
If you are charged with a crime, everything is on the line. You could lose your job, your benefits, your freedom, certain rights, and if you're not a natural born citizen, the right to stay within the United States.
