ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS BY BLEVINS & HONG, P.C.

 

If you are facing criminal charges, there could be serious consequences on the line.

To ensure that your rights are protected, team up with a criminal defense lawyer in Marietta who has taken on cases similar to yours. To avoid future complications with finding employment or trying to make investments, fight against your conviction. Below are answers to some of the commonly asked questions regarding criminal law in Georgia, feel free to contact Blevins & Hong, P.C. if you have additional questions.

 

 

WHAT TYPES OF CASES CAN THE ATTORNEYS AT YOUR FIRM TAKE ON?

 

Blevins & Hong, P.C. can handle a very wide variety of criminal cases. With years of experience, our legal team has taken on many serious felony offense cases as well as the more minor misdemeanor cases. Whether you have been arrested or charged with DUI, drug charges, theft charges, a traffic violation, white collar crime charges, sex crime charges, a violation of your probation or violent crime charges, we can help.

 

HOW ARE FELONIES AND MISDEMEANORS DIFFERENT?

 

Crimes in Georgia are classified as either a felony offense or misdemeanor offense. Misdemeanors are less serious offenses and generally result in up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. More serious crimes are charged as felonies and the penalties will have a minimum of one year in jail plus larger fines. The main difference between felonies and misdemeanors is the severity of the offense and the potential penalties that follow. Still, even a misdemeanor can have lasting consequences. No criminal charge should ever be taken lightly.

 

DOES LAW ENFORCEMENT NEED TO READ ME MY RIGHTS?

 

Many are unsure what the Miranda rights are and how you are protected. The Miranda warnings only apply to interrogations that occur while you are in custody. If you are not in custody, you do not have to answer questions being asked. Also, these warnings are only a protection against questions that could lead to an incriminating response. You do not need to be read your rights before asked what your name and address is, or other information that would not be incriminating. Law enforcement is able to arrest you without reading your rights, but if they ask you questions without reading your rights, anything you say may be inadmissible into evidence.

 

SHOULD I SPEAK WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT?

 

The answer is no. Your answer should always be 'I will not respond until my lawyer is present.' Do not try to tell your side of the story thinking that it will prevent you from being arrested or charged. Insist on having your lawyer present before giving any information, and do not let law enforcement convince you to answer any questions. The right to an attorney is a legal right, and it must be respected.

 

If you are facing criminal charges or have questions about a case, contact our firm. We would be happy to set up a free consultation and discuss the details of your case with you!
