Criminal Charges for Navajo County Traffic Violations

You may not have initially realized that you were being charged with a crime, as many criminal traffic offenses do not result in the suspect being handcuffed, seated in the back of the squad car and taken to jail. Instead, you may have been issued a citation in lieu of detention, which is a ticket with a summons to appear in court. The fact that you were not arrested does not lessen the severity of the consequences you face. If you fail to take action to defend the charge, you could be sentenced to jail or a probation which would subject you to serious restrictions for months or years to come. You are also at risk of losing your driver's license to suspension or revocation.
Criminal Traffic Offense Attorney in Navajo County
It is advisable to consult with an attorney as soon as possible after you have been arrested for a crime such as DUI, hit and run, reckless driving or racing. Paying the ticket amounts to an admission of guilt and you should not take any further action before learning more about your legal options. It may be possible to avoid conviction by proving that you are innocent or by moving to have the charges dismissed, as well as negotiating for a reduced charge and a lighter penalty.
