Possession of Marijuana in Lake Como
The municipal court in Lake Como has jurisdiction to decide a charge of possession of marijuana, provided the weight of the marijuana was 50 grams or less. While a conviction for simple possession of marijuana typically does not involve jail, a conviction does result in a record, fines, and a six month license suspension. These are obviously significant recourses and it is always wise in our judgment for a lawyer to be enlisted by someone charged with marijuana possession in Lake Como.
Disorderly Conduct in Lake Como
The Borough of Lake Como experiences a huge influx of young people during the summer months and this is when the majority of disorderly conduct charges are issued. With all of the partying and alcohol consumption in the summer, the police are particularly zealous in enforcement of the disorderly conduct statute. The law allows the state to incarcerate someone for up to six months under the disorderly conduct statute but individuals should rarely be subjected to such a result in our view. If you were arrested for disorderly conduct in Lake Como, you should know that our lawyers are frequently successful in avoiding a criminal conviction for this offense.
Simple Assault in Lake Como
Arguments can escalate into fighting and commensurate charges of simple assault. The incident of fighting is higher in our view whenever alcohol is involved and this probably explains why considerable simple assault arrests occur each year in Lake Como. The simple assault law also provides for up to six months incarceration so this charge should not be taken lightly. If you find yourself charged with simple assault in Lake Como, the attorneys at our firm can assist you in eliminating the criminal record exposure in a large majority of cases.
Resisting Arrest in Lake Como
The slightest failure to submit can result in a resisting arrest charge. Indeed, we find that many resisting arrest charges are the result of complaints of injury during cuffing by those arrested rather than actually resistance. Irrespective, your chances of resolving your case without a criminal conviction on your record are historically high if you choose to retain our firm to handle your Lake Como resisting arrest charge.
We understand the turmoil that a criminal arrest can cause and every lawyer at the firm is sympathetic to the concerns of prospective clients. Our attorneys do their absolute best to insure that a conviction is avoided and we are successful in the vast majority of Lake Como criminal cases.
