Polson & Polson, P.C.

Alabama Criminal Lawyer

A criminal accusation is a life-shattering event that no one can prepare for. The shock and embarrassment of being accused of any crime can put anyone and their family under stress and can even destroy futures. In Alabama, criminal penalties are harsh. Even a first-time offender is at risk of going to jail or prison. This is especially true in cases involving violence, drug crimes, and sexual offenses.

If the government obtains a guilty verdict in a criminal trial, convicts face a lifetime of difficulties. Penalties extend beyond prison and fines. A criminal record is stigmatizing, causing convicts to be shunned by family and friends and to struggle to make a living following incarceration.

If you or someone you care about has been charged with a crime in Alabama, seek the advice of an experienced Alabama criminal lawyer who knows the law. With so much at stake, it is important to talk to a legal professional who can fight for your rights and mitigate the damage to your reputation, your family, and your future.

Alabama Crimes

Criminal Penalties

Alabama crimes are classified as felonies, misdemeanors, or violations. Depending on the severity of the crime, penalties may range from up to 30 days in jail to life in prison. Furthermore, the state of Alabama still imposes the sentences of life in prison without parole and the death penalty for capital offenses. In addition, criminal penalties can be fines, or some combination of fines and jail time.

In addition to defining crimes, Alabama Code Title 13A also delineates the sentences imposed by courts for each crime. There is little room for leniency, and in addition to jail, fines, and probation, Alabama courts are authorized to levy civil sanctions. If convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, an Alabama criminal attorney should be consulted as a defendant can be ordered by a court to:

  • RELINQUISH A LICENSE OR PERMIT

    RELINQUISH A LICENSE OR PERMIT (IF ACTION NOT TAKEN WITHIN 10 DAYS FOLLOWING A DUI)
