Talladega Criminal Charges
Auto Theft: 186

As a veteran defense lawyer handling drug charges in Talladega, attorney Eversole knows the stress and embarrassment that comes with being busted. Alabama’s drug laws remain quite severe – mandatory minimum sentencing can mean years or even decades behind bars.
Your previous criminal record, the weight of the drugs, what type of drugs are involved, and whether possession or sale is alleged will all play a role in the type of charges you face and the potential legal consequences. In cases where a juvenile is involved or where the drug charge occurred near a school or other area protected by law, the potential penalties may be particularly severe.
However, an experienced defense attorney can make a number of moves on your behalf. Challenging evidence, including the admissibility of items seized during a search, can result in the reduction or dismissal of the charges. Aggressively fighting the assertion that drugs were for sale is another defense. In other cases, fighting for treatment or alternative sentencing measures may be in a client’s best interest.
When it comes to teenagers, our juvenile defense attorneys believe youthful offenders deserve experienced legal representation. Parents should not send them into court unrepresented – should not make them “face the music” or “learn a lesson.”
In many cases, juvenile criminal charges will have consequences well into adulthood and may prevent a teen from getting into college, joining the military or obtaining certain types of financial aid.
Theft crimes – whether robbery, burglary, car theft or shoplifting – can also be charged many ways. Such charges can often be successfully defended against or lesser penalties secured by a defense attorney who understands the law and knows how to negotiate for lesser charges.
In many cases, where a defendant was not caught in the act and does not give a statement – the state may have a circumstantial case that will not withstand a strong defense.
Like theft crimes – assault and domestic violence charges in Talladega can be charged a number of different ways, depending on a defendant’s criminal record, whether or not a weapon was used, and the extent of the alleged victim’s injuries.
As veteran Talladega domestic violence defense attorneys, we know such charges are frequently filed based on the statements of the alleged victim – with little or no evidence. The state can charge you with whatever it wants. What matters most is what you are convicted of in court.
