Corpus Christi Criminal Defense Lawyer
Corpus Christi Criminal Defense Lawyer Alex R. Hernandez Jr.
Attorney Alex R. Hernandez Jr. has represented State and Federal Criminal Defendants in the Corpus Christi area for two decades. If you have been charged with committing a crime, having an experienced Corpus Christi criminal defense attorney by your side can be vital.
The federal criminal prosecution process is very different than that of the state system as far as how a criminal investigation can take place as well as the delivery of the judge’s verdict. For that reason, it is important that your criminal defense lawyer has in-depth knowledge of both of these systems. Your defense is only as good as your lawyer’s knowledge of federal and state law and proceedings, after all. Your lawyer should have a vast understanding of the grand jury proceedings, writs of habeas corpus, and the appeals process.
Felony and Misdemeanor Representation in Corpus Christi Texas
If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor crime at the state or federal level, the team at Alex R. Hernandez Jr. Criminal Law can help.
Misdemeanors may appear to be minor offenses, but they can have long-lasting impacts on your life. From imprisonment to heavy fines to a suspended drivers license, letting a misdemeanor go unaddressed can affect you for years or decades. An experienced Corpus Christi criminal defense attorney can be the difference between punishment and a criminal record and having the charges dropped and walking free. Our skilled lawyer, Alex R. Hernandez Jr., is familiar with how the prosecution approaches criminal cases and how to strategize to potentially have charges dropped.
Examples of misdemeanors in Texas are assault causing bodily injury, DWI and DUI, evading or resisting arrest, theft, criminal mischief, trespassing, possession of marijuana, and prostitution. Occasionally, based on your situation and criminal history, a misdemeanor can be treated as a felony. Your criminal lawyer should do his best to prevent misdemeanor charges from being raised to felonies and work to have charges dropped or punishment reduced.
Felonies are more serious charges and can result in harsher punishments including time served in state prison. Felonies have different degrees based on the severity of the crime. First degree felonies are the most severe and can result in up to 99 years’ imprisonment, second degree felonies can result in up to 20 years, and third degree felonies can result to up to 10 years’ imprisonment. There are also state jail felonies, which are punishable up to two years in a state jail.
Examples of crimes that can be charged as felonies include, but are not limited to, murder, aggravated assault, manslaughter, animal cruelty, arson, burglary, tax evasion, fraud, grand theft, vandalism, kidnapping, violating parole, and treason.
Because of the nature of capital felonies (murder under certain circumstances), we do not handle these cases and recommend finding a lawyer who only does capital felony defense
