Deferred Prosecution Program – Fort Worth

DPP… What?

Maybe you’ve heard of a friend, a first time offender getting the opportunity to enroll in a program called DPP but what is it and could it be right for you?

What is Deferred Prosecution Program?

The Deferred Prosecution Program (DPP) allows for first time offenders of certain classes of crimes between the age 17 and 24 to complete the program over a period of time to allow the young adult, or juvenile some time to rehabilitate and move forward without the stigma of a criminal conviction. This opportunity has requirements to enroll and stay enrolled that need to be followed closely but for the young adult looking to live their life without a criminal conviction, it is an alternative to the traditional criminal legal process. Once successfully completed the DPP program results in those charges entered against that young adult being dismissed.

If you or young adult child has been charged with an offense for the first time and think you or your child may qualify for DPP, give the Schneider Law Firm a call to schedule a free 30 minute consult with one of our knowledgeable criminal defense attorneys.

Walk-Throughs: Not Just for Video Games

Walk-Throughs

How can you help yourself when you are charged with a crime and the way the police have the story isn’t what happened? Your best defense is a lawyer who walks-through the area where the crime allegedly occurred and how everything happened with the client.
The walk-through allows lawyers to later be able to set the scene for a jury to give them a window into your story and what happened during that time.

At the Schneider Law Firm, our team of criminal defense attorneys do walk-throughs on a variety of charges from indecent exposure to murder. If you need the help of a skilled team of trial lawyers ready to defend you and tell your story to the jury, call the Schneider Law Firm to schedule your free 30 minute consult.
