Your Professional License may be Hanging in the Balance.

In the State of California if you are convicted, or even under investigation for a crime, then your professional license may be affected on a number of different levels.  Of course, a felony conviction would have a far greater impact on your future than would a misdemeanor, but either could be catastrophic!

Some vocations have stricter rules than others, but here are some of the careers that can be derailed in the Big Bear State.  Among others they are…accountants, attorneys (not surprisingly), people in the medical profession such as dentists, chiropractors, nurses, etc.  Even pharmacists may be affected by an investigation or conviction.

In the professional world you are always exposed even by the suspicion of a spurious deed.  Please call William Chestnut if you are under investigation for a felony or even a misdemeanor.  The stakes are way too high!  San Jose criminal defense attorney Bill Chestnut is ready to help in any way that he can.  Just call (408) 298-6990.

At What Age Can Juveniles be Tried as Adults in California?

Good news/bad news.  The state law in California prohibits the prosecution of children who are less than 14 years old.  Perhaps disturbingly, there are some situations where someone 14 years of age or older can be tried as an adult.  There are certain crimes where your kid could be tried in adult court.  That should send shivers up your spine!

Just like an adult, kids who are as young as 14 in The Big Bear State can be charged with an infraction, a misdemeanor, or even a felony.  The minor cannot be charged with Class A felonies, for instance.  Can juvenile crimes be sealed?  That means that the offense is deemed to have never occurred at all!

You see, this is a slippery slope indeed.  The thought of having your kid’s life altered forever when he or she is still a young teenager is horrifying.  Do Not let another day pass.  Call the law office of San Jose juvenile defense attorney William Chestnut immediately.  Bill has been defending kids in court for decades.  That phone number is (408) 298-6990.

3.  Illegal dumping in waterways.

There are many other examples on a global as well as regional scale.  Environmental crimes may not be “sexy” as it pertains to local news coverage, but they are very real.  San Jose criminal and environmental crime defense attorney William Chestnut knows that as well as anyone.  If you or a loved one has been accused of a California environmental crime call Bill at (408) 298-6990.
