Individuals found to violate a criminal law whether through their own admission of guilt or through the determination of a jury are subject to fines, imprisonment, probation and community service, among other penalties. The outcome of any criminal case depends upon the facts surrounding the crime charged, the strength of the evidence, the legal validity of law enforcement and courtroom procedure, and the goals and strategy of the government and defense. Attorneys David B. Epstein and Gary R. Conroy will navigate you through this complicated legal process.
After your arrest, booking and initial bail phases of the criminal process, the first stage of courtroom-based proceedings is the arraignment. During a typical arraignment, a person charged with a crime is called before a criminal court judge, who reads the criminal charges against the defendant, assigns a court-appointed attorney if the defendant cannot financially afford their own defense, asks the defendant how he or she pleads, i.e. guilty, not guilty, etc., alters the bail amount or releases the defendant on his or her own recognizance and announces dates of future proceedings in the case, such as the preliminary hearing, pre-trial motions, and trial date.
“DUI” stands for Driving under the Influence. “DWI” stands for Driving While Intoxicated. These two similarly related charges occur when someone is operating or is in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substance, to the extent that their mental faculties are impaired and/or their Blood Alcohol Content is above the legal limit. Even for a first offense, penalties can include license suspension, substantial fines, mandatory attendance at a state or DMV approved alcohol program and mandatory overnight incarceration. In addition, a DUI/DWI conviction stays on a DMV record for at least 7 years; it typically results in higher insurance premiums, and an offender may become ineligible for credit. A criminal conviction could also jeopardize your employment opportunities.
High-tech professionals, corporate executives and clergy who are criminally charged for offenses such as corporate theft, embezzlement, forgery, hacking, or fraud are often referred to as “white collar” offenders and are prosecuted for white collar crimes. In some cases, first-time offenders are convicted and sent to prison, even with no prior criminal history.
Domestic violence is any physical, emotional, sexual or other violence that takes place between people who may be married or not married; heterosexual, gay, or lesbian; living together, separated or dating. Domestic violence can be criminal and include physical assault: hitting, pushing and shoving, etc., sexual abuse: unwanted or forced sexual activity, and stalking.
Felony Crimes involve drug and narcotics charges, burglary, robbery, homicide, assault, arson, kidnapping and sex crimes. A felony conviction is a serious matter that can result in a substantial state prison sentence and the potential loss of certain privileges and Constitutional rights of U.S. citizenship, such as the right to possess a firearm or the right to vote.
