Criminal Defense

When faced with criminal charges, you need someone who will protect your constitutionally guaranteed rights and advocate for those rights. You always have options when you have been charged with a crime. You have the right to contest the charges in court, and the right to allow a court or jury determine if you have committed the crime. You can also have your attorney enter into plea agreement negotiations, for the purposes of trying to negotiate a lesser punishment for the crime with which you have been charged. Below is a list of some common crimes recognized under Mississippi law.
