Criminal Justice in Upper Providence Township Explained

As we mentioned, the crime rate in Upper Providence Township is quite low.

You will not want to take anything for granted, nor will you want to make the mistake of thinking that your crime was not very severe in nature.

Having an Upper Providence Township criminal defense lawyer can make all the difference when it comes to your eventual acquittal or conviction. Remember that the consequences of a conviction can be far reaching. You might think that a minor misdemeanor will be over after you pay a small fine. This simply is not true. What you need to keep in mind is that a conviction as an adult will stay on your criminal record and follow you everywhere that you go. This might make it difficult to secure employment at a future date. Some misdemeanor convictions and most felonies will have a jail sentence attached to them. This could mean the loss of your current job and it will put your personal relationships in jeopardy.

What Does This All Mean?

What this means is that you need a criminal defense lawyer to defend you charges ranging from moving traffic violations to theft and everything in between.

Keep in mind that Pennsylvania has a points system when it comes to determining whether or not you get to maintain your driver’s license. Every time that you receive a citation, you can end up with between two and five points being added to your record. Once you reach six points you face higher insurance premiums and the possibility of a suspended license. You will want a lawyer to fight any citation that you get. This is just the beginning. A criminal conviction of a misdemeanor or felony is going to cause you a lot of problems. You need a lawyer examining the evidence against you so that they can begin to work out a defense strategy.
