Clerks Magistrate Hearings

Clerk magistrate hearings should always be taken very seriously. Should the clerk magistrate’s office decide that there is probable cause for a criminal complaint to issue in relation to criminal allegations, not only will you need to aggressively fight these criminal charges at future court appearances and possibly trial, but also, you will have a permanent criminal record whether or not you are found not guilty or the matter is dismissed after issuance of a criminal complaint. This can haunt most people for the rest of their lives because a criminal record may adversely affect you in future dealings with prospective employers and dealings with the police.

It is at the clerk magistrate hearing that your attorney must do everything in his power to prevent a criminal complaint from ever being issued. Hire a criminal defense attorney to adequately protect your rights at a clerk’s hearing.
