Being charged with a criminal offense can be a frightening experience, especially if it is your first-offense. Most likely, you feel overwhelmed and frightened about what your future will hold. You are faced with many questions like, Will I go to jail? What kind of punishment may I face? Will I lose my job?, and you may not know where to turn. The possible punishment you could face will depend on the crime you have been charged with. However, the good news is that as a first-time offender you may be eligible for judicial diversion.
Being arrested for the first time can be a very stressful and frightening experience. If you are facing your first driving under the influence/driving while intoxicated (DUI/DWI) charge, you may be feeling humiliated, unsure of what to do next and full of questions about your future. You want to know what to expect and what type of consequences you may face.
