Fighting The Charges And Limiting The Punishment
Felony crimes can carry a prison sentence from five years (Class E felony) up to 30 years to life (Class A felony). Many are no-parole offenses, requiring the person to serve at least 85 percent of the sentence before they are even eligible for a parole hearing.
A felony conviction has lasting collateral consequences. Non-U.S. citizens are subject to detention and deportation. Convicted felons cannot serve in the military, possess a firearm or serve on a jury. A criminal record can disqualify you from school, employment opportunities and professional licenses.
Mr. Wellborn will examine every facet of your traffic stop, arrest or interrogation and the warrant, as well as any physical evidence and witness or informant testimony. He works for the best possible outcome given the facts of your case: dismissal of charges, diversion programs to keep the conviction off your record, plea agreements to lessen the penalties or defending you at trial when pleading guilty is not an option.
