My approach to the practice of law is simple:
Your case will be as important to me as it is to you.
If you are charged with a crime, it is important to understand the statutory penalties. The statutory penalties refer to the minimum and maximum sentence the court can impose. The penalties depend on a variety of factors including:

  • The guideline range that applies.
  • Whether the crime is a felony or a misdemeanor;
  • The degree of the felony or misdemeanor charge;
  • Any minimum mandatory prison sentence that applies to the charge.

State Attorney's Office has created felony and misdemeanor diversion programs to avoid some of these penalties for lower level offenses:

  • RIDR.
  • pre-trial intervention (PTI).
  • adult pre-arrest diversion (APAD).
  • domestic violence pre-trial intervention (DVPI).
  • misdemeanor intervention program MIP.
