Misdemeanors

Arizona has a wide range of misdemeanor offenses. They vary from DUI offenses, criminal traffic offenses, alcohol and drug related offenses, domestic violence, theft, and even contracting without a license. For many people, being charged with a misdemeanor is their first encounter with the criminal justice system. It can be an overwhelming and intimidating experience. Every misdemeanor has the potential for hefty fines, probation, and even jail time. Some misdemeanors may prevent you from getting a fingerprint clearance card. Some misdemeanors have immigration consequences as well. 

Remember: it’s never “just a misdemeanor.” A misdemeanor is a crime and a conviction can have a lasting and devastating impact on your life. If you are charged with a misdemeanor, contact an experience criminal defense attorney as soon as possible, who can help you navigate your way through this difficult time. 

Felonies

A felony is the most serious type of crime a person can be charged with. Like misdemeanors, there are a variety of different offenses that can be charged as felonies, including DUI, domestic violence, property crimes, drug crimes, and violent and weapons offenses. Every felony offense carries a possible prison sentence as punishment. There are 6 classes of felony offenses in Arizona, with a class 6 offense being the lowest and a class 1 felony the highest. The higher the class, the higher the potential prison time. If you are convicted of a felony offense, you lose your civil rights, including your right to own a weapon and vote. A felony on your record could affect your ability to get or maintain employment, housing, and some government assistance as well. If you are charged with a felony, it is absolutely essential that you retain a highly qualified defense attorney to try to lessen your exposure and risk as much as possible. 

Immigration Consequences

A criminal charge can threaten more than just your freedom. If you are not a citizen of the United States, a criminal conviction can put you at risk for deportation or prevent you from becoming a citizen. It is essential that a criminal defense attorney advise you on the complex interaction of criminal and immigration law.
