In many criminal cases, several alternatives to physical incarceration are available for defendants either convicted of specific offenses or those who accept plea agreements.
However, inexperienced criminal defense attorneys are often unaware of most alternative sentencing options. The Law Offices of Areeg Akel has successfully assisted clients in obtaining alternative sentences and avoiding jail.
