Great Falls, Montana, Criminal Defense Attorney
Felony crimes are more serious than misdemeanors and carry more serious penalties. According to the Criminal Code of the state of Montana, a person convicted of a felony offense faces a minimum sentence of one year in a state prison.
Clearly, if you are being investigated for the commission of a felony crime, or if you already have been charged with committing a felony crime, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the felony process and who will explore all avenues of defense in your issue.
From the office of Carl Jensen Jr., Attorney at Law, in Great Falls, Montana, I aggressively defend individuals against both felony and misdemeanor charges. I review every aspect of your case, using skilled crime scene investigators, scientific analysts, medical experts and other specialists to strengthen your case.
If convicted, an offender’s felony record will not be expunged or cleared for some time. This can disqualify you for a job, prevent you from coaching a youth sports team, deny you the right to own firearms, and have many other ramifications. A knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer is vital to minimizing the long-term impact of a felony charge.
