What is the difference between misdemeanor charges and felony charges?
Misdemeanor charges are the less serious of the two. They can involve penalties of up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $500. Felony charges range in severity, but are all more serious than misdemeanors. Penalties can include years in prison, high fines, and in some cases probation. Both misdemeanors and felonies go on your record.

Is there a difference between theft, burglary, and robbery?
Yes. Theft is the general description of unlawfully taking someone else's property. Robbery involves using or threatening to use force to obtain something that is not yours. Burglary involves trespassing. You can be charged with burglary even if something was not stolen.

Why would I need to seek legal help for traffic violations?
Many people who receive traffic violations, such as speeding tickets, tend to merely pay the fine out of convenience. By just paying, you admit to guilt and you receive points on your driving record. In other cases, you could be facing more serious traffic violations, such as driving without a license. By seeking legal help from Millikan Wright, LLC, we can help you fight your charges fairly and aggressively. We can help protect your driving record and we are not afraid to take your case to trial.

If I was arrested for intent to sell drugs, how can prosecutors prove my guilt without actually catching me in the act?
There are various factors prosecutors can use in order to prove guilt. Prosecutors can present evidence in your drug crime case such as:

  • A large amount of money
  • Scales and / or baggies
  • Testimonies of experts
  • The location of your arrest
