The Impact of a Criminal Conviction
Because convictions can have different outcomes, it is vital that you know your legal options and what you can and cannot do. Even if fines have been paid and jail time served, there can still be lingering issues.
You may have a warrant placed against you. In the case where your crime was committed against another, they may take a restraining order out against you. This can severely limit your freedom, including where you can live and the jobs you are able to take. However, know that you have options and our Minot criminal defense attorney can help.
Often given as an alternative to prison time, probation allows you to continue with your life but with restrictions. For example, you may have to prove your sobriety by taking random or regular drug tests. In addition, you will not be allowed to possess a firearm, may be restricted as to who you can associate with, and have to check in with a probation officer regularly.
Failure to follow the terms of the probation can lead to you having to serve your sentence in jail or prison, which is why it is vital that you hire representation if you have been accused of a probation violation. At Rowenhorst Law, we have the experience and knowledge to defend your freedom.
The Appeals Process
In the United States, those convicted are granted the benefits of the appeals process. During this time, an appellate court will review the case to decide if any mistakes were made that could have changed the outcome. These mistakes can include prejudice against you by the lawyers or juries or a lack of substantial evidence to support the claim against you.
It is important to remember that an appeal is not a new trial and there must be a valid reason to ask for an appeal as frivolous appeals cases can be punished by the court.
