Do not to let one mistake ruin your life. The criminal justice system is daunting. There’s a different language in the court system that is unfamiliar to most. The police and prosecutors are not there to protect you and without experienced counsel you’re at a disadvantage. In some instances, however, a first offender may have the opportunity to have the case diverted without criminal prosecution or be sentenced under the First Offender’s Act, which allows a first time offender to move through the system without a criminal record. Some of the options may include less jail time, diversion programs, community service or probation. It is important to have an attorney that is aware of these alternatives so they can advocate for you and help you reduce the harm on your reputation.
