Being investigated or accused of a crime is alarming to anyone facing such actions. You have questions. You know you need help. The first thing you need to do is remain calm. The second is to assert your right to speak with an attorney. Law enforcement must stop questioning you and give you the opportunity to speak with a lawyer. If a search warrant has been served and executed, do not speak with law enforcement about what they may or may not have found. Contact a Sacramento criminal defense lawyer right away.

What is the Criminal Justice System?
The criminal justice system is huge. It involves many players, law enforcement, suspects, persons of interest, alleged victims, victims, witnesses, the court, the prosecutor’s office, and more. The systems all work together and spin the wheels of justice. As a person suspected or alleged of a crime in Sacramento County, it is in your best interest to retain a Sacramento criminal defense attorney. Our criminal defense lawyer earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. He graduated with Summa Cum Laude Honors (top 3% of his class). Attorney McCrea is educated in all aspects of the criminal justice system including advanced interrogations and investigations.
What is the Difference Between a Felony and a Misdemeanor?
Most notably, the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor is the time that might have to be served behind bars. Misdemeanors are generally crimes that are punishable by up to a year in the county jail. Felonies are generally punishable by a year or more in state prison. There are many collateral consequences that accompany a criminal conviction. The effects may differ in severity such as your right to own a firearm and the stigma that accompanies a criminal conviction in the community, and many others. If you are being investigated or accused of a crime in Sacramento County, contact our California criminal defense lawyer.
Will I Serve Time in Jail or Prison?
