Kansas City Area Misdemeanor Crimes Lawyer

Independence Felony Charges Lawyer

Most criminal offenses fall into one of two categories: misdemeanor or felony. Felony charges are generally more serious, but the line that separates a felony from a misdemeanor is not as well-defined as most people think. If you have been charged with a criminal offense, you need an experienced attorney to fight for your rights.

At Ronald L. Jurgeson, LLC, our primary goal is to keep you out of jail. We will examine the facts of your case and work to get your charges reduced or dismissed altogether. Many times, a collaborative effort between the client, the defense attorney, the prosecution and the judge can lead to a reduced fine or jail sentence. You can count on us to explore every avenue of your defense to try to get the best possible outcome.

Kansas City Area Misdemeanor Crimes Attorney

Traditionally, 'person crimes' are criminal offenses that are designated by either felony or misdemeanor. A person crime occurs when there is offensive person-to-person conduct, including:

  • Assault: Assaults are the most common person crime. The degree of the assault charge is typically based on the severity of any sustained injuries, and whether or not a weapon was used.
  • Robbery: Robbery can include white collar crimes, computer crimes, fraud, forgery, identity theft or any other theft crime.
  • Sexual assault: This offense is assault with an obvious sexual component. Rape is considered a sexual assault person crime, as are date rape and some forms of child molestation.
