Criminal Lawyer – Delaware Co PA

Facing Criminal Charges in Pennsylvania?

Information on what happens next if you face criminal charges in Delaware County, PA.

If you were charged with a crime, it can be frustrating, frightening and embarrassing – even if you are innocent. Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, you will still have a permanent record that can affect everything from being able to obtain loans, housing, education and finding a job.

The penalties you face with even a first-time DUI in Delaware County or an underage drinking citation can you set you back financially and emotionally, especially if you lose your license for a year or have to spend time in jail. A criminal conviction stays on your record for anyone who runs a credit check or does an internet search to see.

If you face a more serious crime like burglary, kidnapping or homicide, the difference between having charges reduced to 2 years in prison from 15 is significant.

That is why it is important to have an aggressive and knowledgeable attorney on your side. Because until you have been convicted, you still have rights worth fighting for – and your freedom is worth the fight – for your sake, for your family’s sake.

An Arrest is Not a Conviction

In any criminal case, prosecutors must prove every element of their case beyond a reasonable doubt. If they can not do this, they do not have a solid case.

A thorough investigation of every possible angle could show reasonable doubt, and that is what Attorney Saadzoi will attempt to do – everything possible to show reasonable doubt in order for your charges to be cleared.
