Penalties for a Criminal Conviction

If you are convicted of a serious criminal offense in Lee County, you could be hit with sentencing requirements that severely damage your freedoms, reputation, finances, and more. Even misdemeanor crimes can carry surprisingly heavy penalties that change your day-to-day life for the worse. For this reason and many others, you should always take every criminal offense filed against you seriously and explore your options to defend yourself. Even if you are notified of a criminal investigation against you but have not been arrested yet, you can take action to defend yourself and fight to avoid any severe criminal penalties later.

Convictions for criminal offenses in Lee County, TX, can include:

  • Extended incarceration (possibly life in prison for certain felonies)
  • Steep fines (often in the tens of thousands of dollars)
  • Mandatory community services (80+ hours in some cases)
  • Required completion of corrective courses (such as anger management)

Beyond the courtroom, the penalties of a criminal conviction can be damaging. You might be blocked from certain avenues of employment, or unable to get certain loans or forms of government assistance. Your personal life could even be devastated by the reputation loss you suffer among your friends, coworkers, and neighbors. With everything on the line when charged with a criminal offense, you should do whatever you can to defend yourself.
