Aggressive counsel for felony and misdemeanor charges
A felony is the most serious type of crime, punishable by at least one year in state prison. Violent crimes, such as homicide, rape, aggravated assault, and armed robbery, are felonies. Theft crimes can be felonies, depending on the amount stolen and/or the method of accomplishing the crime.
A misdemeanor, while less serious, still carries harsh penalties — including up to a year of jail time. These crimes include DUI, petty theft, assault and some drug charges involving small amounts of less deadly controlled substances.
Ms. Everett works diligently to deliver the best result possible, but that depends greatly on the facts of your case and whether you have a prior record. In some rare cases, it’s possible to challenge the evidence or police procedures to get charges dropped and the case dismissed. Most cases require plea negotiation to get charges and sentencing reduced. However, there are always cases where the authorities are either mistaken or unreasonable, pursuing prosecution despite her best efforts to resolve the issue. Fortunately, she has ample experience with bench and jury trials. If your case must go to court, Amanda Everett is prepared to fight hard for an acquittal.
Clearing your criminal record quickly
Having an arrest or conviction on your record can limit your options in life. However, under Oklahoma law, certain individuals are entitled to have their arrest record expunged or sealed. It is even possible to have misdemeanor convictions expunged depending on certain circumstances — usually ten (10) years after the sentence was complete. These expungements can be often be completed in 45 to 50 days.
A person may still be eligible for an expungement after a successful pardon. This is important for those with nonviolent felony offenses who wish to have their right to own a firearm reinstated. The pardon process can take around six months to a year to complete.
It is best to speak with an attorney about your individual history to evaluate your eligibility for an expungement. Even if you do not qualify for a full expungement, there are still options for clearing your online court records.
