Criminal Penalties in Cambridge

When a person has been charged with committing a crime, one of the first things that he or she wonders is whether the charge will result in jail time. The answer depends on a series of factors, such as the charge in question, the alleged misconduct, whether the prosecution can prove its case, and whether the person charged has a prior criminal record. Having an experienced attorney at your side affects the outcome of your case. If you were recently charged with a criminal offense in Massachusetts, it is critical to contact an experienced Cambridge criminal defense attorney who can get the best result for your case. Even if the person charged is not facing possible jail time, he or she may be placed on probation and/or may be subjected to expensive fines and fees.

Being charged with a criminal offense can have devastating consequences. With so much on the line, it is crucial to have the advice and support of a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney.
