You came afraid and in desperate need of answers.

You will leave confident and with a clear understanding of what lies ahead.

For most, just the thought of jail is a very scary thing. For those facing criminal prosecution, jail is a very real possibility.


Most often, actions that lead to criminal prosecution are the result of factors that lie outside our control. Underemployment, substance abuse, and mental health concerns are many times contributors to the decisions that ultimately leave one helpless, afraid, and at the mercy of the accusers. Sometimes prosecution results from trusting and relying on others for their guidance and direction. It is not until the authorities come knocking on the door do we realize that trust has been misplaced. Other times the moment one is living in quickly becomes uncontrollable. You don’t have to be alone in this fight.
