If you are facing a criminal charge that could result in jail or prison time, it is easy to see that those consequences could impact every aspect of your life, including your career and your family. In the state of California, there are alternative sentencing options that may be available for some misdemeanor and felony criminal convictions, especially on a first offense.
For more information regarding alternative sentencing options in California, it is important to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney. At the Law Office of Charles B. Smith, we give all of our clients the attention they deserve and may be able to pursue sentencing alternatives that could keep you out of jail. We will do whatever is possible to protect your rights and interests.
