An arrest can be frightening, though this might only be the start of a lengthy criminal process. The criminal justice system does not have a defendant’s best interests in mind, and many people are wrongfully convicted or receive overly harsh sentences. After a conviction, a criminal record can negatively impact your life in many ways for years to come. It is important for anyone under arrest to contact a criminal defense lawyer in Dayton as soon as possible.
