DEFENDING AGAINST A WIDE RANGE OF MISDEMEANOR & FELONY CHARGES
Misdemeanor Offenses in California
Misdemeanor charges are among the most common offenses. In California, a misdemeanor charge is a charge for which you can spend up to one year in county jail and you may be fined up to $1,000.
Common standard misdemeanor crimes in San Diego are:
- Drug possession
- Indecent exposure
- Domestic battery
- Driving with a suspended license
- DUI without injury
- Violating a restraining order
There are also offenses called “wobblers” that the prosecution may choose to charge as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the facts of the case and the defendant’s criminal history.
REPRESENTATION FOR CALIFORNIA FELONY CHARGES
Felony charges are among the most severe criminal charges. These offenses carry sentences of more than one year in jail or prison. Some of the most serious felonies may even be punishable by death. If you’re convicted of a felony in California, you may also face fines of up to $10,000 in addition to or in lieu of imprisonment.
When you face felony charges in San Diego, you need an aggressive and determined attorney to review all the evidence the prosecution has against you. You also need a criminal defense attorney to uncover new evidence that can show you in a favorable light and cast doubt on the prosecution’s case. Your felony case deserves significant time and attention because your future is on the line. You can trust attorney Dod to put his experience to work fighting for you.
I was referred to attorney Dod from a co-worker’s friend who retained him on an assault case. Dod got that case dismissed. I am in the military, and was involved in a fight at a bar, and charged with several felonies. Attorney Dod got my charges reduced to a single misdemeanor with some anger management classes. He answers every call, text, or email immediately. Thank you!!
Mr. Ghassemkhani kept me out of jail. Even though it was only my first DUI, my BAC was so high the district attorney demanded 120 days jail time. I was terrified. But, Mr. Ghassemkhani reassured me that if I followed his directions I would stay out of jail, and he was right. I am so glad that I hired him to represent me. He helped make what could have been a nightmarish experience relatively painless. I highly recommend his services to anyone facing a DUI conviction.
