It is true that bad people make bad choices–that does not mean that a bad choice makes you a bad person. A large portion of criminal defense work in Collin County involves helping average folks who have no experience with the criminal justice system whatsoever. Handling a criminal charge can be complex and frightening for someone who is not a career criminal. The good news is: there are plenty of good people who have made a mistake or two and continued living normal, happy, and successful lives.

When people mention the name George W. Bush, most people think about the 43rd president; a president who led our nation in the wake of 9-11, and was elected to serve two terms in office. Despite your political opinions of the man, it is hard to argue that there are few achievements in life more impressive than being a two-term president of the United States. On the other hand, when people mention the name George W. Bush, people rarely think about is his conviction of DUI in Maine prior to becoming President of the United States.

Luckily, you don’t have to be the son of a politician to persuade a prosecutor that, like the then-future-president, you have a bright law-abiding future ahead of you. The Collin County District Attorney’s Office has programs and policies in place that help soften to blow of a criminal charge upon a person with little or no criminal history–they understand that people make mistakes. Depending on the facts of your case, there may even be ways to resolve it without tarnishing your record. An attorney can provide a unique kind of encouragement which helps make these kinds of options available.
