The New Indiana Criminal Laws Can Be Confusing Without An Attorney
Although effective July 1, 2014, Indiana’s completely new criminal code for charges, sentencing and credit time is still difficult to understand without the help of an experienced attorney. At Anna K. Murray & Associates, P.C., every member of our team has undergone training on this new system and is equipped to help you navigate through the changing landscape of criminal charges. These laws are not retroactive, and crimes committed prior to July 1, 2014 will still be handled under the old set of laws.
To Plea Or Not To Plea?
Depending on your circumstances, sometimes it is best to accept a plea offer. These are the types of situations where you know there is sufficient evidence for you to be convicted. In that type of case, your best bet will be to work out an agreement that matches your goals — which may be to stay out of jail or to avoid fines — dependent on your situation.
If you are not guilty, you should not accept a plea. You should take your case to trial if the prosecutor is unwilling to dismiss your case and you are innocent.
Attorneys Anna Murray and Bryan Abell have successfully handled a full spectrum of misdemeanor and felony charges, including:
- Operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI/DUI)
- Invasion of privacy
- Criminal recklessness
- Possession of illegal substances and paraphernalia
- Drug dealing
- Manufacturing illegal substances
- Resisting law enforcement
- Habitual traffic violators
We will travel to meet with defendants who are currently incarcerated, if needed. We can work with bond assignments and payment plans, although to qualify for a payment plan you must provide proof of employment, and you must still be able to pay a retainer upfront. Most importantly, we will fight vigorously on your behalf.
