St Louis Criminal Defense Lawyer: Isn’t It Easier To Just Plead Guilty To The Crime I’m Charged With?


Well, yes. If I am giving an honest answer, it is much easier to simply plead guilty to whatever crime you have been charged with. Because if you plead guilty, then you won’t have to deal with the prosecutor, you won’t have to learn what you rights are, and you won’t even have to speak much to the judge (other than to say that you are pleading guilty).

But although choosing this route may be the quicker, easier path, it is also the most damaging and disastrous for your future (in the short and long term). It will wreak havoc on your ability to land a good job, to rent a decent apartment, to secure a student loan, and it will even destroy your chances of receiving certain lines of credit.

It will stay on your permanent record forever (hence the word “permanent”). It will stick with you like luggage, always pulling you down. And it will cause people to look at you differently (every time the subject of your criminal record is brought up).

But it doesn’t have to be this way!!! There is a much better alternative that is available to you!! And all you have to do is pick up the phone (or fill out an online form) to learn more!


Our firm wants to fully examine the facts of your case. We want to determine if the police and/or investigators complied with the law (or if they violated your Constitutional rights in the process). And we will want to ensure that the best possible outcome is achieved for your case.

Sometimes, the best outcome is a deal that is made with the prosecutor. This involves requesting from the prosecutor a recommendation to the court (to get the charge reduced to some minor infraction, one that does not go on your record at all). But sometimes it involves getting the charges thrown out altogether.

The only way to make that determination is by speaking with you personally about the facts of your case. We will answer all your questions, thoroughly explain your full range of options and rights, and help guide you through justice system from start to finish!!
