Fulton Criminal Defense Attorney

When you have been charged with a crime, law enforcement and the prosecution are not on your side. You cannot rely on their investigations and arguments alone. You need someone working for you to protect your rights and give you the best chance of retaining your freedom. Our Fulton criminal defense attorney can defend you against any of the below charges, and act as your advocate every step of the way.

Traffic Violations

The most common traffic violations in Fulton include speeding, running red lights, following too closely, and driving on a suspended or revoked license. Our Fulton criminal defense attorney gives these cases the same kind of attention as felonies and violent crimes, such as assault. We can help you avoid the serious penalties associated with these crimes, such as the loss of your driver’s license.

Driving While Intoxicated

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a common crime throughout Missouri, but there are many different kinds. First offenses are very different from third offenses, and a person may even face felony DWI charges if they caused an accident resulting in someone else’s injuries or death. 

Drug Crimes

Possession, distribution, and trafficking are just a few of the many drug crimes recognized in Missouri. The seriousness of the charges, and the penalties associated with conviction, vary depending on the type and amount of drug in question. A person may also face state or federal charges. For example, someone found selling marijuana in Fulton only would likely face state charges. However, if they transported the drug over state lines to sell in another state, federal charges would apply.

Theft Crimes

Nearly everyone knows that theft is the act of taking something that belongs to someone else without their permission. There are different types of theft crimes in Fulton, as well. The charges a person will face generally depend on the circumstances of the case and the value of the property stolen.

Sex Crimes

Rape, statutory rape, and sexual abuse are just a few of the most commonly charged sex crimes in Fulton. All of these offenses have very harsh penalties for those convicted. One of these is registering on the sex offender registry, a requirement that could last for several years. Appearing on the sex offender registry can place strict limitations on where you live, where you are employed, and other important aspects of your life.

Weapons Offenses

Weapons charges are another type of very common criminal offense in Fulton. These include the unlawful and illegal use of a weapon, and unlawfully owning a gun. Certain weapons, including machine guns and short-barreled rifles, are also illegal for anyone to own in Missouri, unless there is an exception under federal law.
