Why Would I Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer?
Idaho’s criminal justice system is complicated, and the line between a misdemeanor and a felony is thin. Even misdemeanors can have heavy impacts on your daily life. Penalties include fines up to thousands of dollars, lengthy time spent in jail or prison, loss of your license, and a criminal record. This could jeopardize your job, time with your family, and your hard-earned money. Having an advocate who is aggressively on your side and has extensive experience in the legal system in Boise, Meridian, and Nampa (Ada and Canyon county) means that you are already one step ahead!
By bringing criminal defense lawyer Michael Larsen onto your team, you are getting access to all of his knowledge and experience with the paperwork, courts, and Idaho laws. He will act as a buffer between you and the stressful process of defending yourself. He’s here to keep you up to date on all the moving parts involved in a criminal case, such as when your charges are filed, what documents you need to produce in court, and the possible plea bargains available to you. In some cases, like DUIs, there is a separate administrative action that requires immediate action within 7 days of the arrest.
Michael Larsen has been working in the criminal justice system for almost 3 decades, including 15 years spent as a prosecutor. With over 20,000 prosecutions and 5,000 trials, he knows the criminal justice system inside and out. With Michael’s experience and knowledge, he can challenge the system you now face. At a time when the legal system can seem so impersonal and intimidating, you owe it to yourself to retain a lawyer who is willing to lay everything on the line to pursue the best possible result.
Some violent crimes can be enhanced, or “aggravated.” Battery is the offense of committing bodily harm to the victim and is a misdemeanor.
Battery can become aggravated when an alleged offender:
- Uses a deadly weapon or toxic chemical
- Causes significant bodily harm, disability, or disfigurement
- Causes harm to a pregnant woman or her unborn fetus
DUI refers to the crime of impaired driving due to the use of alcohol or drugs. Are you facing a first or second DUI charge? Even though these are often misdemeanors, they still carry the threat of a lifetime criminal record, jail time, and hefty fines. These penalties alone are enough to make a DUI conviction a devastating, life-changing matter.
DUIs can be considered felony offenses if the driver causes harm or wrongful death to another person or has been arrested for the third time for the same offense. It is necessary to act quickly to fully protect your rights.
Assault and battery charges become a crime of domestic violence when one of these acts is allegedly committed against a spouse, former spouse, a person you have a child with, or someone you live with. Penalties become elevated as soon as a crime is considered domestic violence, so it’s important to quickly seek out an experienced defense attorney to go through the process with you.
If you were arrested for possession of a controlled substance or trafficking drugs in Boise, Idaho, you could be facing serious penalties. Law enforcement officials and prosecutors do not take drug crimes lightly. Even first-time offenders could be facing jail time or a permanent criminal record.
Theft crimes are any act of unlawfully taking someone else’s property under fraudulent means without the owner’s consent and without the intent of returning the property to the original owner. Both grand theft and burglary are considered felonies in the state of Idaho and it’s important to immediately act to get the best possible result.
Some of the most severe penalties can result from a manslaughter or homicide conviction. If you are accused of taking someone else’s life and have been charged with manslaughter or homicide, you will need the defense of a seasoned litigator.
When someone has been sexually victimized, prosecutors will try to punish an alleged offender to the fullest extent of the law. For this reason, anyone who has been accused of a sex crime will need an aggressive legal defender who isn’t afraid to go the distance to protect his or her reputation.
