The state regularly overcharges individuals with crimes they cannot be convicted of because the individual did not perform the acts defined in the criminal statute in an effort to intimidate the individual into a guilty plea.
You need to have an experienced and fearless lawyer who will defend your rights and ensure that you are not convicted of a crime that you did not commit. You also need to have a lawyer that will not buy into the false overcharging of individuals in order to give the appearance of a “good deal” when a lesser charge is offered.
You need to hire ROY YUNKER LAW.
