Crow Wing County prosecutors have almost unlimited resources. And, they do not hesitate to bring all these resources to bear against criminal defendants. For the most part, prosecutors are not interested in justice. They only care about the outcome. Convicting defendants is the only way to climb the corporate ladder.
If you are facing felony charges, you need an equally dedicated Brainerd felony lawyer on your side. That’s the kind of representation we offer at Carlson & Jones. First, we quickly and thoroughly evaluate your case, looking for all possible defenses. Then, we do not stop fighting for you until we achieve the best possible result under the circumstances.
Types of Felonies We Handle
Some Brainerd felony lawyers look for quick plea bargains. They reason that such an approach concludes the matter quickly, so they can get on with their loves.
In some cases, that’s a good idea. But in most cases, our Brainerd felony lawyers are much more diligent. We look for holes in the state’s case and then aggressively attack these weak points. We use this same approach in:
Violent crimes, like aggravated assault,
Criminal sexual conduct,
Drug crimes, and
White-collar crimes, like embezzlement.
Once we expose deficiencies in the state’s case, it’s much easier to successfully resolve criminal matters. Prosecutors would much rather plea bargain weak cases than take their chances at trial.
How Do Brainerd Felony Lawyers Resolve Cases?
Plea bargains resolve almost all criminal cases. Usually, both sides compromise to reach these out-of-court settlements. Frequently, the defendant agrees to plead guilty to a lesser-included offense.
Assault is a good example. If the alleged victim was badly injured, prosecutors almost always press aggravated assault charges, regardless of the other facts. So, our Brainerd felony lawyers focus on these other facts, like voluntary intoxication or the alleged victim’s questionable membership in a protected class, to achieve the best possible outcome.
Frequently, these plea bargains include deferred disposition or pretrial diversion. If the defendant completes some program requirements, the court dismisses the case. That means the defendant has no conviction record.
