Maybe you were driving a vehicle with a passenger who had cocaine and was caught, or you didn't know cocaine was in your home when it was raided and you were charged with a crime. Whatever the reason is that you've become involved in a drug charge, it's important that you have the ability to defend yourself.
Public intoxication is a crime that you can be accused of mistakenly, particularly if you are ill or have side effects from medications that make you appear intoxicated. If you're accused of being publicly intoxicated, your attorney can help you defend yourself by making sure your side of the story is heard and that your rights aren't infringed upon.
When a person goes to trial, his or her defense attorney works to paint him or her in the best light. Stories can be skewed from one side to the other, so hearing your testimony or side of the story can be very important to your case.
Being accused of sexual assault is something you should take seriously. While it's possible to have the case against you dropped, if you don't protect yourself from the start, your reputation can be put at risk. As rumors spread of your alleged role in a sex-assault case, you could find that your work is affected right along with your social engagements and relationships.
Even though solicitation isn't sexual in itself, soliciting someone for sex is a crime. Criminal solicitation includes requesting, demanding or encouraging someone to engage in criminal conduct. Usually, this means the solicitation of prostitution, but it can apply to other kinds of cases.
