Criminal Law in Idaho

Being charged with a criminal crime is never easy and the law may seem confusing to many at first. All defendants have certain rights and a criminal lawyer needs to be retained immediately after an arrest to ensure those rights are protected.

The defendant is guaranteed the right to legal representation, whether a public defender is appointed for the defendant (based on need) or the defendant hires a private criminal defense attorney. The legal right to a fair and speedy trial and the right to be provided a specific statement of the charges are two other very important rights of a defendant.

There are two types of criminal charges: Misdemeanor and Felony. Misdemeanor cases tend to have less long-term consequences than felonies, but can still result in the possibility of several months in jail and years of probation. A felony on a criminal record can not only last for a lifetime, but if it must be revealed to potential employers it can and will prevent a person from obtaining certain employment in the future. From a DUI or marijuana possession charge to domestic violence or white-collar crime such as bank fraud allegations, an encounter with the criminal legal system can have many negative consequences.

The immediate consequences of being charged with most crimes are being arrested, processed, mug shot taken, and posting bail. DWI and DUI charges result in immediate suspension of driving privileges. Contacting a DUI attorney before making any statements to authorities or the court is important. The DWI lawyer in Canyon County can request a BAC hearing within 7 days to assist with the driver's license suspension, it is very important that an attorney be hired before this 7-day period expires.

The outcome of a criminal case varies greatly depending on each case and the severity of the charges. Simply a person being charged with a crime doesn't make that person guilty. A proper defense must be provided for that defendant and the prosecution has a duty to provide the court with true, convincing evidence. If you, a friend, or a loved one has been charged or investigated for one of the following crimes in Canyon County, contact an experienced attorney for a consultation.
