Avoiding a Criminal Conviction
Drug lawyer Christopher Glinski can help you beat your drug case.
The War on Drugs has resulted in thousands of non-violent people going to prison and being labeled as criminals or felons. Fortunately, there are now many options for avoiding criminal drug convictions and for keeping people convicted of drug crimes out of jail and prison. For example, some defendants are eligible for Deferred Prosecution Agreements. Under these agreements, a defendant’s case is put on hold for a period of 6 months or one year while the defendant completes a treatment program. After the defendant completes the treatment program, the charges are dismissed. Also, some defendants are eligible for expungment, which means that after the defendant completes a period of probation the criminal conviction will be expunged off of their criminal record. This means that the case will be removed from CCAP (Wisconsin Circuit Court Access) and you will not have a criminal conviction on your record.
Many inexperienced or ineffective drug lawyers don’t even request these programs for their clients. It’s unfortunate, but if your attorney does not request one of these programs (or even know about them), then you will not be offered one of the programs. Attorney Christopher Glinski has obtained Deferred Prosecution Agreements for dozens of his clients and has convinced judges to expunge criminal convictions for many of his clients as well.
