ADVOCATING ON BEHALF OF CLIENTS IN FELONY CASES
Felonies are serious crimes that are often punishable by extended periods of incarceration. If you have been accused of a felony crime, there is no time to waste. We provide representation to clients facing charges involving:
Violent Crimes — Though the state does not separate felony crimes into separate classes or categories, some violent offenses, such as murder, child abuse, assault and battery with a deadly weapon, manslaughter, and rape, are subject to the "85 percent" rule, which requires the person sentenced to serve no less than 85% of the sentence imposed before being eligible for parole or release from prison. Many of these crimes also carry life in prison or life without the possibility of parole.
Firearm Offenses — Cases related to use, possession, purchase, and carrying of firearms under certain circumstances, by individuals with specific criminal histories, and/or in certain places can range from misdemeanors offenses, which carry time in the county jail, to felony offenses, can carry lengthy prison sentences. You need an attorney who understands the complexity of the different state and federal laws applicable to firearms and the requisite skill that cases involving firearm charges present.
White Collar Crimes — When facing charges of fraud, embezzlement, internet crimes, or other white-collar offenses, you can count on our discipline and training to methodically collect and present crucial evidence to build your defense.
Most felony cases occur in state court, but we also assist clients who face charges in federal court involving interstate activity or alleged violations of federal law.
DEFENDING DRIVERS CHARGED WITH DRUNK DRIVING
Oklahoma has different charges for driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while impaired (DWI). A charge for DUI occurs when a driver's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08 percent or higher, 0.04 percent or higher for commercial drivers, and any measurable quantity for anyone under the age of 21 years. A charge of DWI can occur when the test results do not indicate legal intoxication, but the driver was affected by drugs or alcohol. A conviction for DUI or DWI carries various possible penalties, including incarceration, fines, and license suspension. David A. Cincotta is a DUI and DWI lawyer who defends accused drivers by identifying law enforcement errors and advocating for a fair result.
ASSISTING THOSE ACCUSED OF COMMITTING DRUG CRIMES
In Oklahoma, the crime of simple possession of any controlled dangerous substance is now a misdemeanor. If you have charges for simple possession of a controlled dangerous substance, distribution, possession with intent to distribute, trafficking, manufacturing, or another type of drug crime, you can count on us to provide comprehensive legal support. Prosecutions for drug trafficking or the manufacture of drugs can result in a sentence that lasts numerous years or even decades. This is the case when drugs involved are those such as methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, or heroin, or a prescription drug sold unlawfully. Often, these cases hinge on whether the police acted in compliance with the Fourth Amendment, whether the police properly collected the evidence, and whether the evidence supports the charges filed by the prosecution. So, we will review every detail to uncover any problems and provide you the best possible defense.
REPRESENTING INDIVIDUALS IN ALL TYPES OF MISDEMEANOR CASES
Within the state, misdemeanors generally carry up to one year in the county jail. Additional penalties may be imposed, such as a fine or driver's license suspension. Misdemeanors can be in a state, federal, and municipal courts. If you are facing accusations of assault, battery, disorderly conduct, public drunk, petit larceny, or another type of misdemeanor offense, David A. Cincotta works for you to prevent the imposition of unwarranted penalties.
