    Madison County Criminal Defense Attorney

    If you are accused of a felony and arrested, you need the best and most experienced Madison county criminal defense attorney on your side. There is much more to defending your rights than merely going to trial. Private investigator connections, research creativity and excellent writing skills are just as important as trial lawyer skills. We will always attempt to investigate every aspect of your felony charge and produce the most favorable settlement possible without going to trial. Once we have investigated the pertinent facts of your case, we will research other cases with similar circumstances to compare and get defense strategy ideas. Court decisions in previous cases form an important basis for us to draw from in forming our arguments and supporting your rights. Once that is accomplished, we will vigorously write letters and briefs to limit the prosecution of your case to only the bare minimum against you.

    You need the best Madison county criminal defense attorney because the importance of controlling negotiations and not going to trial can not be overstated. Going to trial exposes you to a guilty verdict and a potential prison sentence. Mandatory prison sentences such as the following can be imposed in certain circumstances and we need to minimize your exposure to this at all cost.

    In addition to murder, and aggravated murder, The State of Ohio can impose mandatory prison sentences in the case of the rape or attempted rape of a juvenile under the age of 13. Certain sexual offenses and firearm possession while committing a felony are also instances where mandatory prison sentences can be applied. The penalties imposed must be either a specific number of years in prison or a range of years in prison. An example of a mandatory sentence would be in the instance of a person being convicted of aggravated murder serving a mandatory sentence of at least 20 years before becoming eligible for parole. Another mandatory sentence could be for the use of a gun or other firearm in the commission of a felony. The mandatory sentence would be three years in prison.

    A felony criminal accusation will make a serious impact on your person and reputation. With the right Madison county criminal defense attorney at The Law Office of John P.M.
