An arrest can be a frightening experience, and you can be under even more stress if you are charged with a crime. The criminal justice system is anything but transparent and is not defendant-friendly. There are many complex rules and procedures, and you likely may not be aware of all of your legal rights as a defendant. Because the consequences of a criminal conviction can be harsh and long-lasting, you need the right criminal defense lawyer in Dayton on your side immediately.
At The VanNoy Firm, we represent clients facing a wide range of criminal charges, from traffic offenses to homicide. If you are arrested, your first call should be to our experienced criminal defense lawyer. The sooner you call, the sooner we can begin crafting the strongest possible defense for your case.

No matter what case you have in Dayton criminal court, do not hesitate to contact our office for assistance.
The law sets out the possible court-ordered penalties for each individual criminal offense, and the judge often has wide discretion when it comes to sentencing. Some common penalties include:
Unfortunately, the possible consequences of a conviction do not end with the court, as having a criminal record can have a long-term impact on your life in many ways. A conviction can affect your ability to get a job, find housing to rent, qualify for educational programs or public benefits, and more. Some convictions may require you to register as a sex offender or prevent you from possessing firearms in the future. Furthermore, once you have a conviction, the court-ordered penalties for future charges can substantially increase.
It is important to avoid a criminal conviction whenever possible, and The VanNoy Firm will explore every option to get your charges dismissed or reduced. We will identify all possible legal defenses, identify violations of your constitutional rights, negotiate with the prosecutor for lesser penalties, and much more.
