By talking to a Sarasota / Bradenton criminal attorney from The Miller Law Firm, you could have a strong advocate on your side through the entire process.

Here a motion can be put forward to dismiss your case altogether. If this motion is not successful, you will have to go to trial. There you will either be found not guilty and let go, or you will be found guilty and sentenced. The punishments you face vary greatly depending on the crime you are convicted of.
