Former Prosecutor, Attleboro criminal defense attorney Amit Singh knows the serious consequences that may result from even minor criminal charges. Defendants often face jail or prison time, fines, and court costs, but there are a number of other possible consequences. Defendants are often aware that they may lose driving privileges when convicted or even charged with a vehicular offense, but many do not realize that drug cases may also result in a driver’s license suspension. Jail time, court appearances, and license suspension can all lead to missed appointments, missed work, and possible loss of employment.
We know how important your case is to you, and it is important to us, too. If you are facing criminal charges, we will work tirelessly to protect your rights and defend your case. Mr. Singh has several years of experience in investigating, negotiating, and trying criminal cases and he knows the strategies employed by prosecutors and police officers.
The arraignment is the first formal step in the Court process (with exceptions of course (show-cause hearings, grand jury proceedings, etc..). It is where the Court apprises the individual the nature of the charges being levied against them, any bail issues (such as revocation of bail; request by the prosecution for added cash bail, conditions of release, or the imposition of a “58A” hearing- to be held without bail for up to 120 days, among others…) and the next date of the case along with the nature of the proceeding the case is on for next.
It is always important to get a qualified criminal attorney involved early enough in the process in order to be able to obtain a desirable disposition, such as getting the case dismissed on court costs or getting the prosecution to dismiss the case after pre-trial probation without any admission of guilt. In a rare situation, if contacted early enough and depending on the charges, our office has been able to get cases dismissed prior to arraignment. This keeps your record clean.
