How to stay out of jail! In every case that we handle, we try and obtain a favorable result for our clients, whether it be a “Not Guilty” verdict, a dismissal, or a great plea bargain. But in those cases where jail time is warranted, there are still many alternatives rather than going to jail.
Alternatives to jail include electronic monitoring and house arrest, community service, Cal-Trans, graffiti removal, alcohol and drug rehabilitation, sober living facilities, work release, work furlough, and many more. An experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can explore all of these possibilities and try to obtain the one that is best suited for you and your case.
Obtaining the winning sentencing alternative requires thorough investigation and preparation. It requires a lawyer who will take the time to get to know you and your situation personally. It requires a lawyer with your best interests at heart.
Before you plead guilty to a crime, please contact a criminal defense attorney and know all of your options. See Sentencing Alternatives.
