If you have been charged with any kind of quality of life offense, call us now! With an experienced criminal attorney by your side, Wagner PLLC will fight for you.
These crimes are prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General (OAG). Even though these crimes are relatively minor charges compared to other criminal offenses, it can still lead to fines, jail time, and a permanent criminal record. A permanent criminal record can have a multi-faceted negative impact in your life, including your employability, security clearance, ability to obtain loans, and education opportunities. OAG may, however, offer various diversion options for first offenders.
