First-Time Criminal Offenses in Southern Indiana

Fighting Hard to Protect Your Rights and Defend Your Future

Being charged with a criminal offense in Indiana can be overwhelming and confusing, especially for first-time offenders. Suddenly, you are worried about how this incident may affect your future. The criminal defense attorneys at Ooley Law are committed to defending your rights and fighting for the best possible outcome. As much as possible, we will strive to have the charges dismissed outright or reduced to include alternative sentencing options, such as community service or diversionary programs. Together, we will work to ensure that your future remains bright.

Advocating for Your Rights

First-time offenders typically have many questions about what to expect from the criminal justice process. When you work with one of our highly-skilled attorneys, you’ll receive straightforward and accurate answers you can trust. Our priority is to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome, and we will employ an effective legal strategy that advocates for your freedom. If a complete dismissal of the charge is not possible, we will seek more lenient sentence options that, unlike jail time or steep fines, actually support your rehabilitation and allow you to get your life back on track.

Keeping Your Future Bright

Many states are exploring the use of alternative sentencing options, especially for first-time offenders who are committed to their rehabilitation. Instead of facing time behind bars or exorbitant fines, first-time offenders would participate in a diversionary program that’s designed to connect them with the resources they need to lead a more productive life. For instance, drug and alcohol treatment programs can help someone struggling with addiction regain control over their life. We will listen closely to your needs and concerns and push hard to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome.
