A misdemeanor is a crime for which the potential penalty is less than a prison sentence at hard labor. Should you have occasion to be charged with a misdemeanor, it is something with which a seasoned criminal defense attorney can assist you. With over fifteen years in practice as a former prosecutor, Ryan Cox has the experience you deserve to aid in dealing with misdemeanor charges in and around the New Orleans area.
Crimes such as public intoxication, simple battery, assault, drug possession and theft (under $500) can be classified as misdemeanors. They can often be enhanced, however, to charges that carry greater penalties if they are committed more than once. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you navigate your misdemeanor charge(s) through the court system, giving you peace of mind.
