Long Term Consequences of a Fullerton Public Urination Conviction
Somewhere down the road a person may apply for a job. A person will face a crossroad of answering yes or no to the question of “have you ever been convicted of a crime” and the person will have to say yes if he or she wants to be truthful. There are pros to pleading out quick. The first of which is the person does not have to hire an attorney and will save on the attorney fees. The second ones is the person will be able to reopen his case and dismiss it if he knows how. (Assuming probation was given and he completed probation without any trouble) However, one also must consider the downside. The cons include having a criminal record which will have the possibility of following you for life. The person will have to answer for the Fullerton public urination for the rest of his life unless he takes care of it.

Defenses to a Downtown Fulerton Public Urination Case
Lots of things have happened with the Fullerton police department lately. There has been many controversies involving police misconduct. One of the fallout of these is the introduction of the body camera to the police officer. This is significant in a public urination case because often times people are already done peeing when they are approached by a police officer. It this is the case then having the video of the officer’s body camera will help a lot in the case and would lead to a dismissal of the charge. However, if it does not seem good then it is a good idea to not request the body cam of the police officer as it would cause problems for the case. It’s always a strategic call.
On top of this, there are certain standards the state must be prove until they can convict you for a charge of a misdemeanor.
There are Burdens of Proof the State must Show. It is not easy to meet this proof. In addition police officers can not play it fast and loose with the digital technology out these days. Gone are the days when an officer can say that the suspect confessed to the crime when he never did. This is due to the audio recording that is mandatory on police officers. In addition to this, officers must also wear body cams.
Fight Your Downtown Fullerton Misdeameanor
Using Your Clean Record to Dismiss the Case
In certain cases, we are able to use your clean record to make a difference on your case. However, this will only work on people with the cleanest records. The argument that would be made is that there is a bright future ahead for you and a misdemeanor will negatively affect you. For example, John enters a guilty plea and gets put on diversion then he goes out to Macy’s at South Coast Plaza and steals some clothes and gets caught then this guilty plea will be sued against him. There will not be much for the charging agency to do because the plea was already entered.
