Lasting Impact of Criminal Convictions
It is sometimes said that there are no small crimes, only small-time criminals.
This is another way of saying that even if a person violates the law only
once in their life, the consequences of a conviction can still be staggering
and lifelong. No matter how big or small your alleged criminal activity
may be, you need the strong and effective leadership of Panama City Criminal
Defense Attorney Al Sauline for trustworthy and unwavering Criminal Defense
representation. The goal is always to have your charges reduced or completely
Penalties that can accompany a criminal conviction include:
- Jail or prison time
- Hundreds or even thousands of dollars in fines
- Probation and counseling
- Registration to a sex offender database (sex crimes)
Beyond the punishments stated directly on sentencing instructions and conviction
orders, a person who is convicted will be impacted in many other ways.
Convictions for certain crimes, such as domestic violence or drug trafficking,
can lead to parallel Court proceedings which strip away child custody
rights, for example, removing a person from his or her own home and family.
No matter the severity or nature of a crime, a criminal record will always
be damaging, as it destroys a person’s professional reputation.
Employers, lenders, and landlords often turn someone away just due to
a single conviction.
Don’t let the criminal justice system push you around! Call the firm
at 850.250.3426 today for help.
Upholding & Maintaining the Presumption of Innocence
An undeniable cornerstone of the criminal process is the presumption of
innocence, a Constitutional guarantee for anyone charged with a crime.
In everyday terms, this is the concept that someone is innocent until
proven guilty. In recent years, with information and news spreading across
the globe the second an event or scandal occurs, it feels more and more
like there is a presumption of guilt, that alleged offenders must prove
they are innocent rather than the prosecution needing to prove they are guilty.
Albert J. Sauline, III, Attorney at Law wholeheartedly ensures the presumption
of innocence alive and well. Everyone deserves a fair trial, to tell their
story in Court without first being painted as guilty by the news media,
society, the Judge, and the jury. When you have Panama City Criminal Defense
Attorney Al Sauline in your corner, you can be confident that the criminal
justice system will be kept honest and held to the highest standards.
