Facing Felony Criminal Charges in Mississippi
Nothing is more frightening than when you or a loved one has been criminally indicted and bound over for trial. Because the system is set up to encourage guilty pleas rather than trial, most criminal charges are resolved by a plea bargain and guilty plea. Fewer and fewer of those who are wrongly charged are able to actually exercise their constitutional right to a jury trial. This is largely because of the risk of a lengthy prison sentence if you lose. The potential for long jail sentences also adds to the risk of going to trial.
Our state court criminal justice system also encourages prosecutors to charge an individual with as many counts as possible which often forces an innocent person to plead guilty to a less charge just to avoid risk and expense of a trial. All of this means that your choice of lawyer is critically important to achieving the best possible outcome.
