Developing An Effective Defense Strategy Against Criminal Charges

Most people do not know what to expect when facing felony and misdemeanor criminal charges. Mr. Kucera will help you understand what to expect and will guide you through the criminal justice system. Redding criminal defense lawyer — John M. Kucera — will address all of your criminal law questions, while acting quickly to develop an effective defense strategy against the charges against you, such as:

DUI/DWI/BUI: From the loss of your license to potential jail time, a drunk driving conviction whether in a car or boat can result in serious implications. He will help you handle the criminal and administrative concerns of your DUI. His law firm also defends clients accused of operating a boat while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Alcohol-related criminal charges: Mr. Kucera is committed to defending building contractors, auto shop owners and convenience store owners in sting operations by Alcoholic Beverage Control and the Contractors' State License Board for contracting without a license or selling alcohol to underage minors.

Arrest warrants: Being pulled out of your car or home at gunpoint, enduring the long-lasting pain, discomfort and humiliation of being handcuffed in front of your children, family or in public is a horrible experience. The expense of having your car towed and your name popping up on the internet only adds to the embarrassment.

Traffic offenses and DMV issues: A speeding ticket may not seem like an important matter, but each traffic violation can add up quickly to points against your driving record. Points on your driving record can ultimately cause your insurance rates to increase or even cause you to lose your driving privileges. John has the skills and experience level to represent individual motorists and truck drivers facing serious trucking violations.

Drug charges: From simple possession to drug trafficking charges, Mr. Kucera handles crimes involving a wide range of narcotics. He has the skills and experience level to defend clients accused of trafficking drugs along Interstate Highway 5 from Tijuana, Mexico to Vancouver, Canada.

Marijuana Charges: The laws surrounding Marijuana Charges in California have become more and more complex. Depending on the manner in which marijuana is cultivated, it can actually be legal to do so. Mr. Kucera can help you protect your rights.

Violent crimes: Violent crimes may be accompanied by lengthy, severe punishments such as "strikes," that can follow you the rest of your life. "Credits for good behavior" are often reduced in such crimes resulting in longer prison terms. From assault and battery to murder, Mr. Kucera is able to handle complex violent crimes cases.

Vehicular homicide and manslaughter: People make mistakes, but there are harsh consequences for a vehicular homicide and manslaughter conviction, especially if drugs or alcohol are involved.

Domestic violence: In addition to the criminal consequence, a domestic violence conviction could negatively impact your divorce, child custody plans as well as the inability to have firearms for life.

White collar crimes: People from all walks of life can be charged with fraud, embezzlement, and other types of white collar crimes. There is often a special prosecution team that handles these types of cases. As a former Deputy District Attorney for Shasta County, John M. Kucera formerly prosecuted white collar crimes and is well-prepared to defend against these charges. He will use his business, accounting and legal skills to develop an aggressive defense strategy.

Healthcare defense: John M. Kucera is also committed to defending doctors, nurses, certified nursing assistants, dentists, chiropractors and other medical professionals at risk of losing their license to practice when under the threat of a criminal prosecution and conviction. John has the skills and tenacity to develop an aggressive defense strategy against allegations of stealing drugs, writing fraudulent prescriptions and other health care provider related criminal charges.

Theft crimes: From juveniles facing petty theft shoplifting charges, to serious and violent robberies, identity theft, grand theft or embezzlement, Mr. Kucera can help you protect your rights if you have been charged with theft.

Sex crimes: The stakes have become incredibly high in cases involving sex crimes. The legislature continues to enact laws severely punishing sex crimes, child molestation and Internet sex offenses. With mandatory sex offender registration in California, a sex crime conviction could haunt you for the rest of your life.

Juvenile defense: John protects the rights of minors facing a wide range of charges, from underage drinking and traffic offenses to theft and sex crimes.

Weapons offenses: John M. Kucera is the Northern California contact attorney for the National Rifle Association and has provided pro bono services for years in support of the Second Amendment's "Right to Bear Arms."
