If you scanned through the list of crimes above and found what you were charged with listed there then unfortunately you have been charged with a felony. In Texas a felony conviction can carry long-term and very serious consequences in addition to whatever the punishment might be for that crime.
For example you’ll lose your right to vote if you are convicted of felony. You can never again express your opinion about the direction the country should be going by voting for the candidate of your choice. You just be along for the ride while the rest of us decide these things for you.
Also, under federal law, you will never be able to legally own a firearm. Think about this . . . if you are an avid hunter or enjoy occasionally going hunting or hope to one day teach your kids to enjoy the outdoors hunting, you will never be able to do that again.
Here at the Law Offices of Roger E. Haynes we want to help you avoid that conviction on your record. We have over 22+ years of experience handling felony cases. It would be a privilege for us to serve you and your family by representing you in court.
Our goal is to assist each and every client as an individual. No two cases are ever exactly the same. We do this by listening to your side of the story, addressing your concerns, providing answers to your questions, investigating and fighting the charges against you, discussing the options available for defenses, and ultimately making sure that you understand your rights in the criminal justice system before you make a decision of how you want to handle your case.
There are three main paths in the resolution of a criminal case.
The first and most widely recognized path is to plead “not guilty” and go to trial. In this scenario the State has the burden of proving the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and a judge or jury would decide whether the defendant is guilty and what the punishment should be if the person is found guilty.
The opposite end of the spectrum would be to work out a plea agreement with the State that, in exchange for the accused citizen’s plea of guilty, an agreed-upon punishment would result.
The final option is what is often called an open plea or a slow plea wherein the accused citizen agrees to plead guilty to the charge but does not agree with the State’s recommendation for punishment and requests that a judge or jury set punishment.
If you decide that you want to fight your case and go to trial we are fully equipped and capable of preparing your best defense, presenting your side of story to the jury, and giving you the best chance of success in beating the case.
If you decide to enter a plea of guilty, we will do all in our power to work out the most fair and reasonable punishment based on all the unique circumstances of your life, taking into consideration the facts of the case and any prior criminal record. If the State simply won’t be reasonable, we will help you decide whether an open plea is in your best interest considering all of the above factors and which court your case is assigned to. Sometimes who your judge is can make a difference.
Our knowledge and experience with Dallas courts and judges is vital in helping you make these judgment calls.
