The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the criminally accused the right to the assistance of counsel. The criminal justice system is complicated, and when a criminal prosecution is commenced, the prosecution will use the abundant resources of the State of Tennessee to obtain a conviction.
The likely consequences of a criminal conviction depend on a variety of factors and range from serving a sentence on probation or other community based supervision, the loss of a professional license, fines and/or restitution, or incarceration. If you or a loved one is facing criminal prosecution, it is imperative that you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your rights and your liberty.
