What Should A Police Officer Do When Charged With An Off-Duty Crime?

On Behalf of | Feb 17, 2017 | criminal defense |

Police officers work hard to keep the public safe. It is a risky, stressful and often thankless job. And no matter how hard they try to work at and live up to a higher standard, the truth is that police officers are human too.

Like everyone else, police officers make mistakes. Like everyone else, they can find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time and end up being accused of the very crimes they have been hired to protect people against. When that happens, they not only risk the typical criminal penalties, their reputations, careers and futures are in jeopardy.
