Defense For Misdemeanor Criminal Charges

Being caught in the wrong place at the wrong time can lead to a legal headache. While nobody wants to be facing misdemeanor charges in court, it's what you do after you've been charged that can have a lasting impact on your future and your freedom. Based in Winston-Salem, attorney Joe Schmitz and his legal team at Schmitz Law, P.C., defend people facing misdemeanor criminal charges in North Carolina.

Many misdemeanor charges are the result of making poor decisions, sometimes under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Otherwise upstanding people make mistakes, and it's possible that charges might be dismissed or deferred for people without a criminal record and a low risk of getting into further trouble.

Don't Let Minor Charges Turn Into Major Problems

Misdemeanor charges include such things as:

  • Shoplifting
  • Simple possession of marijuana
  • Simple assault or assault on a female
  • Resisting arrest
  • Public intoxication
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism

Due to the abundance of colleges and universities in the Triad area, students under age 21 may find themselves charged with underage drinking. Parents might need to hire a criminal defense lawyer on behalf of their children so that the charges are handled appropriately.
