Criminal Defense Lawyers in Jefferson City, MO

According a few criminal law firms, being arrested for a violation of a criminal law or criminal offense usually involves a range of emotions including disbelief, embarrassment, frustration, or even fear. According to experts that offer arrest bail bonds, the arrest is usually the first step in the legal process. A person is placed in handcuffs and transported to the county jail, sometimes without given the option of getting bail bonds or post bail bonds. A person is then fingerprinted and placed in a holding cell until law enforcement officers determine whether to engage in questioning.

Criminal charges often follow the arrest. Judges will require that defendants obtain a criminal defense lawyer to represent their interests as well as bail bonds from a bondsman or a bail bonds company. Many lawyers dabble in the criminal process, but few lawyers possess the experience to handle complex criminal cases including, but not limited to, criminal offenses for driving while intoxicated (DWI/DUI), possession of controlled substances, drug trafficking, possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, stealing, robbery, rape, arson, burglary, forgery, tampering, child molestation, sexual misconduct, child pornography, money laundering, manslaughter, and murder.
