Criminal Defense FAQs

What is the Fourth Amendment?

The Fourth Amendment guarantees the right of people to be free from unreasonable searches and violations of privacy. The Fourth Amendment states: The right of people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or things to be seized.

What is Bail?

Bail is a method for persons arrested to be released from police custody pending their trial. If you are arrested and held at the police station, you have the right to a bail hearing before a judge within 24 hours.


What is a Bail Hearing?

whether you are a threat to the public, the seriousness of the offense you are arrested for, your criminal history,  or outstanding charges, whether you have ever missed a trial in the past, and whether you have a job, a business or a family in the area.


What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?

Criminal offenses can be separated into two kinds: misdemeanors and felonies. Misdemeanors are lesser offenses that usually result in a fine and possibly time in jail. Examples include DUI, shoplifting, and possession of small amounts of marijuana. There are many crimes that are felonies, however, which incur heavy fines and time in state prison instead of the county jail. Some of these offenses include violent crimes such as murder and manslaughter, sex crimes, or theft crimes like burglary and robbery.


I've been charged with a sex crime. Will I have to register as a sex offender?

If you were charged with a capital, life, or another degree of felony for a sex offense, including crimes such as molestation, child pornography or sexual battery, you will be required to register as a sex offender. This is particularly true if the offense was committed against a minor. Sex offender registry limits where you can live, work and travel, since you cannot remain within a certain distance of a school or child care center.


Why hire an attorney?

By hiring an attorney with significant trial experience and who is experienced in the courtroom, you can rest assured that your case is receiving the most aggressive defense possible. The Barker Law Office, PLLC. has handled cases many of them all the way to verdict.  We will aggressively fight your charges.


What do I do if the police want to search my home. Should I let them in?

If the police come to your house and want to search, you are not required to let them in except if they have a search warrant. If they have a valid warrant, they are permitted to come in to and examine your home. They are obligated to knock and announce their presence. 


What do I do if I am falsely accused of a crime

You may know you are innocent, but that  does not guarantee you that the charges will be dismissed or that a jury will find you not guilty. There are many people found guilty of crimes that they did not commit.
