about your legal rights, options and goals involving Criminal Defense issues or disputes.
Make no mistake about it, if arrested for an alleged
criminal offense, if convicted there is a very real
potential that a jail or prison sentence may become a
reality for the convicted party. While under the law when an
individual is accused of committing a crime he or she is
presumed innocent until proven guilty, anyone that has been
arrested can tell you that after being arrested, it does not
appear as though this is the case.
Even when a criminal defendant is represented by a public
defender, those accused of a crime often feel as though they
have limited options, and that they must either take a plea
deal or be found guilty in a legal system that appears to be
stacked against them. While public defenders serve an
important service in the legal system, public defenders are
often over worked, under paid, and have caseloads that do
not facilitate the necessary time and resources necessary to
provide each and every defendant with aggressive and zealous
An experienced and aggressive private practice criminal
defense attorney, lawyer or law firm often provides an
individual accused of a crime the best legal options,
ability to provide an aggressive defense, and the resources
necessary to effectively protect the legal rights and
freedoms of those accused of a crime.
The Law Office of William J. Twyford, LLC,
professional represents those arrested for allegedly
committing a crime involving, but not limited to:
A criminal conviction may result in incarceration in jail
(for misdemeanor crimes), incarceration in prison (for
felony crimes), lengthy periods of probation, fines, or
other mandatory classes, mandatory programs, or penalties
that the court may have the authority to impose as a result
of a criminal conviction.
The difference between a term of “incarceration in a jail”
and a term of “incarceration in a prison” is that a “jail”
is used for short term stay whereas a “prison” is for a long
term stays. The local jail falls under the local city or
county governmental jurisdiction, as opposed to a prison
that falls under the State or Federal Government. It is also
important to understand that many jail and prison systems
have actually become a highly profitable private industries.
While falling under government authority, ownership of a
jail or prison may be privately owned and operated.
If arrested or charged with committing a crime, make sure
you become fully aware of your legal rights and the options
that may be available to you under the law in order to reach
the best possible outcome relating to the defense of
criminal charges you are facing.
