The Christmas season is one that is hard on many people. For those who are in the criminal justice system, it can be a very stressful time. Some individuals are going to spend the holidays behind bars, some of whom are awaiting trial. For these defendants, the need to work on their case doesn’t stop just because of the holiday.
If you have a loved one who is stuck in jail this holiday season, you might wonder what you can do to help them out. One idea is working on their case if they do have charges pending. There might not be much you can do, so you may just have to offer your support. This is true even for people who aren’t incarcerated.
We know that most defendants always have thoughts of their charges looming over them. We can help them learn what options they have for their case. This can vary depending on the type of charge they are facing, but we are always willing to work with our clients to determine what they feel is best for them.
People who are facing criminal charges need to remember that they are the ones who are in control of their cases. They need to take a lead role in the decision-making since they are the ones who are going to have to deal with the impacts of those.
As your case moves forward, the options you have might change. We can help you review the choices you might make. Once you let us know your decisions, we will work to advance toward those choices.
