Criminal Offenses in Harris County - As noted, being accused of a criminal offense can be a frightening, anxiety-producing experience. You may have no idea how your criminal case will proceed therefore it seems even more stressful than it might otherwise seem. Perhaps you are actually innocent of the criminal offense you have been charged with. You may believe that if you did not commit a crime you do not need an attorney. Nothing could be further from the truth. Prisons and jails across the nation house many innocent people. Even if you did not commit the criminal offense, you are facing police officers and a Harris County District Attorney who believe you are guilty before you ever even step inside a courtroom.
Perhaps you did commit the crime, but there were extenuating circumstances. If this is the case, you need an experienced legal advocate who will make sure the Harris County District Attorney is aware of those circumstances, therefore may be amenable to a plea deal which could either reduce the charges or reduce the penalties for the charges. There are few people who can successfully negotiate a good plea deal on their own—your Sullo & Sullo Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer can do this on your behalf, usually with very positive results.
Perhaps you committed the crime and you really have no good defense—do not despair.
